It can be seen on eBay: http://cgi.ebay.com/aw-cgi/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewItem&item=3D1431124219&r=3D0&t= =3D0&showTu torial=3D0&ed=3D990482711&indexURL=3D0&rd=3D1 Although we are asking very little to start and it had lots of lookers, nobody is bidding. We think the size, shipping, etc. is scaring them off. But with some creativity we have moved larger things. i.e. meet buyer part way for example.   Second, We planned to use a fairly nice Welte/ Kimball console which had much of its cherry wood exterior refinished, but it got supplanted by the donation of a totally restored 3 Man. Wurli. console. The Welte/Kimball console needs some work but has been stripped internally as it was destined for SAMs. The keyboards needed an overhaul and we had bought two extra keyboards just for that purpose. so there are now FIVE! Also it came WITHOUT pedal board for which we substituted an OSI pedal pedal board which, although never used has some repairable frame damage.   Furthermore there are three surplus Wurli. 8ft Diapason Bottom octaves = with one including the whole rest of the rank (some replaced with Kilgen near top).   Besides that we have some extra offset chests. (Wurli).   If there is anyone who would like to talk about any of this we'd be happy to. Our time for storage is limited.   All the stuff is in Poughkeepsie, NY   Thanks   John Vanderlee New York Theatre Organ Society Pratt/Roosevelt project.
