2 Manual & Pedal Organ Available, Derbyshire Area
« on: November 21, 2017, 11:50:34 AM »
I have been in contact with this church with regards to removing the organ. However, due to space restrictions I would be unable to take everything, therefore leaving an incomplete instrument.

For this reason I thought I would post this here, to see if anyone would be interested in having everything!

I have been emailed some pictures, and would be very happy to put anyone in contact with the church, should they be interested!

Key information:

Alfred Kirkland 1906
15 ranks
BIOS says tracker, pictures show pneumatic action.

Would it be possible to see the pictures please. And do you know the height? I am currently sourcing an organ for a church in my dioscese but the Church is based in an 18th century Palazzo with a height limit of 5.18 m

Hi David,
I am unable to successfully upload the photos for some reason, however I can forward the email containing them, if that would help? If you could drop me a line at mikey@thenightfactory.co.uk, I shall get back to you!

Thanks for the pictures you sent via email. This site has a maximum limit to the size of file you can add this is why they would not attach.
The organ is tracker (with aluminium squares) but the pedal is pneumatic and quite a few of the Great bass notes are tubed off as well. In addition the roller board I can make out is mounted horizontally under the great, so you may not have noticed it.

My main problem is that I am looking for a free standing instrument and this one was made to fit in a stone alcove. It is not clear that the pedal chest could be moved to form a side wall as the slider action appears to be mounted on it.
I'm also slightly concerned about the evidence of electricians being in and would need to know that any disturbance they has caused had already been dealt with by the OBs maintaining the organ.
Aslo our height restrictions are 3m70 at the sides rising to a clearance height of 5m18. There is no photograph of the front pipes, so I can't even estimate.

We can discuss details via email.

I just need to compress them to below 190 kb. Am working on that.

Windows picture manager appears to only allow certain compressions, the one lower than 200kb is 38kb, where much detail is lost. I shall try the 200kb first in case it works

The windows picture manager does not allow a specific file size to be chosen, but selects between too small or too big sometimes. Here is one that is really too small!

And this shows the horizontally mounted roller board beneath the Great soundboard.
