Organs on eBay or for urgent sale / Conacher - North Wales
« on: September 14, 2017, 10:25:29 AM »
This beauty has just been listed on the Bay:

Price is somewhat optimistic, but worth saving.

Organs in danger / St Paul's Church, St Albans

Jonathan Humbert has alerted people to the fact that the PCC of this church - which has been taken over by the evangelical wing of the CofE is applying for a Faculty to remove this organ.  It is a 2-manual and pedal organ, originally by Speechly, but said to incorporate work by G.P. England and also stops said to have been played by Attwood.  There is a facebook group campaigning for it's retention.  Please read and consider writing a letter of objection to the faculty application BEFORE 5th September.

On ebay.  Bidding around 200 at the moment.  Hope she can be saved.


Currently has 4 bids and going for just over 100.  A nice instrument for a small church.

I've just heard about this organ which may well be of interest to someone wanting a real pipe organ for home practice:

Does anyone know whether any of the records of this company have survived?  I'd like to see if they have any records of work done on my house organ.  I'd also like to find a genuine nameplate  to go on the console.

Another on ebay - looks to be in a poor condition and not sure if the photo shows a pile of pipes beside the console:

Organs on eBay or for urgent sale / House organ
« on: March 04, 2014, 10:38:59 AM »
I'm probably going to have to move house soon into a smaller modern house.  Sadly, there probably won't be room for my wonderful and cherished house organ, so I'm reluctantly advertising it for sale.

It's based on a 1920's Aeolian - 5-ranks, 2-manual & pedal.  Console if a standard size and the pipework is around 7' wide, 4 deep and 7' high.

I'm in West Somerset.  Please contact me for more information.

Organs in danger / Llandaff Cathedral Choir
« on: November 24, 2013, 01:45:03 PM »
Not an organ, but the choir and choral tradition of Llandaff cathedral are at risk as the Chapter propose to sack the Assistant Organist and Lay Clerks to save money.  This, just after the new organ has finally been completed.  I've met Sachin Gunga, the Assistant Organist and he's a thoroughly nice chap as well, of course, as being a superlative musician.  Llandaff are the only professional choir in Wales.  Please look at the attached link to the ISM petition and consider signing it.  Mush is at stake here - not least our own parish church choirs and organs.

Organs wanted / Wanted: Hill Clarion 4'
« on: October 14, 2013, 06:03:44 PM »
We have recently restored our 1898 Hill to its original specification and condition.  We have a spare slide on the Swell which originally held a 4' Clarion and are looking to replace it.  Our organ builder is trying to source a suitable rank, but it's maybe worth asking on here as well.  William Hill 4' Clarion of around 1900, without a harmonic top half.  Does anyone now of anything suitable for sale please?

Organs wanted / Zimbelstern
« on: April 01, 2013, 09:13:18 PM »
Not a whole organ: I'm toying with the idea of putting a Zimberstern in the house organ.  Does anyone know of one for sale cheap? (Real, not digital please).

Another on Ebay:

Osmond's built a lot of similar organs.  They are generally very useful and well built.


Organs on eBay or for urgent sale / 300 for a 2-manual Hill
« on: February 18, 2013, 02:33:40 PM »

Just appeared on Ebay - sounds like they plan to replace a wonderful Hill with a toaster and have already valued the pipes as scrap metal  :'(

Hope someone can save it.
