(back) Subject: eBay alert From: "Tim Bovard" <tmbovard@earthlink.net> Date: Fri, 28 May 2004 23:27:49 -0500   Hi, everyone --   Here's one you don't see every day -- a cute little Hook & Hastings 1m/ped. Looks to be 2 stops (Open Diapason and Dulciana) divided bass and =   treble, with an octave coupler and (probably) a pedal coupler. The = listing says it has an electric blower, but it looks to me like the original hand pumping mechanism is intact too.   I'd bet this is a little DIAMOND of an instrument. I wish they'd been = able to include a few more tidbits of its history in the listing...like maybe a =   date, opus #, church name, or *something*...!   For that matter, one can only wonder where exactly the reserve price is actually set....! <g> I hope it sells to somebody that will appreciate = it.   http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewItem&item=3D3727141563&sspagename= =3DSTRK%3AMEWA%3AIT&rd=3D1 (search for item 3727141563, if the link doesn't work)   Have a good weekend, all!   Tim
