The organ must go

(back) Subject: The organ must go From: "Bob Loesch" <> Date: Thu, 30 May 2002 12:56:14 -0700   Hello list. My health has finally dictated that the organ project must come to an end. I am selling all of my organ-related parts at fair = prices. I must state that most of these items are uncrated, and it is simply not possible for me to expend the time and energy to crate these up, so = pick-up is required. Please bring your own labor, as I will be unable to assist with anything heavy.   There is much, much more than this, but here is a small sample. These are all either theatre organ voices, or romantic concert organ voices. I = have:   Wurlitzer Console from opus 1142, Style 216, with uncut cable and original relay Tibia Clausa 8' 85 pipes 10" wind Viol d'Orchestra 8' 73 pipes 10" wind Viol Celeste 8' 73 pipes 10" wind Vox Humana 8' 61 pipes 6" wind Bourdon 16' octave 12 pipes 10" wind Diaphone 16' octave 12 pipes 10" wind 3 24" X 30" regulators on wind trunk 2 sets swell shutters complete, small (approx. 4' X 5') Toy Counter, complete except for missing triangle   Wangerin Stopped Diapason 73 pipes 6" wind (Beautiful tibia sound) Manual Bourdon 16' 97 pipes 6" wind Viol Celeste Sharp 8' 61 pipes 6" wind Viol Celeste Flat 8'tc 49 pipes 6" wind Tuba Horn 8' 61 pipes 6" wind Oboe 8' 61 pipes 6" wind 6 rank unit chest, big, heavy, complete 5 1-rank unit chests, cut off of straight chests, so one side is open   Smith Tibia Plena 8'tc 61 pipes Vox Humana 8'tc 49 pipes 3-rank unit chest 24 note offset for 16' and 8' Bourdon 3 large curtain-valve regulators, only 1 with valve   Aeolian Diapason 8' 61 pipes 5" wind same scale as Wurlitzer, lower pressure Quintadena 8' 61 pipes 5" wind Manual Bourdon 16' 24 pipes 5" wind   Kilgen Clarinet 8' 61 pipes 5" wind   Robert Morton Style 39 pit organ, consisting of Vox Humana 8', Viol 8'tc, Tibia Clausa = 16' console w/internal switching, but combination action, player roll = frame(s), player relays missing All (?) original case parts, disassembled 16' offset chest not original 8' offset chest top note offset manual chests two additional pit organ chests, one Vox one Viol trap relay without magnets no traps or percussions 3 regulators 2 tremulants   Chrysoglott 49 note Xylophone 37 note Glockenspiel 37 note 2 sets swell shutters complete, approx 5' high X 6' wide   Austin Hohl Flute 8' 73 pipes 5" wind Viol d'Orchestra 8' 73 pipes 5" wind (works well with Wangerin Celestes) Dopple Flute 8' 61 pipes 5" wind E. M. Skinner 16' Trombone 44 pipes 7-1/2" wind Harp 61 bars Chimes 21 note Deagen class A   Dennison Kinura 8' 61 pipes   Spencer Orgoblo (3) 5 hp 7-1/2" New motor (220VAC, 1ph) coupled to new shaft with new = pedestal bearings and Lovejoy coupling. Also have 7-1/2 hp 220 VDC blower motor, with ex-Navy DC starter and solid-state rectifier. Will fit the 5 hp = blower. 2 hp 12" originally from a Wurlitzer style 'B' (220VAC, 1ph) 1 hp 5" (220VAC, 3ph)   Several rectifiers, various outputs.   Pipe organ player. I have no idea what make this is, but it is a double tracker frame with individual pneumatic contacts for each tracker bar, and individual roll motors, etc. The tracker bars, pneumatic motors, and roll tracking devices appear to be Autopiano, but I'm not sure. Also included is a new vacuum box ('vacuum-cleaner' type) and a coupler stack for connecting the vacuum relay to the pipe organ.   Make me an offer. No reasonable offer refused.     Regards, Bob, in beautiful Lake County, California, USA   "Creativity is allowing yourself to make mistakes. Art is knowing which ones to keep."
