(back) Subject: Items available From: "V. David Barton" <vdbarton@erols.com> Date: Thu, 13 Jan 2000 14:37:13 -0500   Church located in Baltimore, Maryland, has the following items available = for sale:   Small one-manual, six-rank chapel organ by Hinners in poor but restorable condition; needs complete restoration as a result of extensive water damage.   Stop List: Pedal:(30 notes) Bourdon 16 Manual: (61 keys) Open Diapason 8' Gedeckt 8' Salicional 8' Viola D'Gamba 8' Flute Harmonic 4'   Couplers: 16' Manual Coupler 4' Manual Coupler Manual to Pedal Tremulant   Size of pipe chamber: 8' deep 9' wide 10' tallest pipe.   Separate console: 50" wide 40" deep (without pedal board) 50" high 30 note radiating concave pedalboard   Swell shade pedal control Crescendo (rollschweller)   Low Pressure Century Electric Motor Blower Assembly. 110 volt, one-phase 1/4 hp motor.   Orgelectra Low-voltage 10 volt DC rectifier.   The organ had been sold by Whitehead and Hoag of Newark, N,J. and has = their tag on the console. I understand that the organ was donated to Christ Lutheran by a church in New Jersey in the 1940's.   All the pipes are present, and all are in good-to-fair (repairable) condition.   The organ could be made to work again rather easily with the replacement of the chest valves with direct electric magnets. The wind chest itself is made of very light wood with panels in the bottom. These deteriorated with the water soaking and would need to be replaced. With these panels replaced and a little encouragement, the organ would again play. Right now, one note sounds.   The balcony is VERY rickety and the organ would need to come off the balcony onto a secure scaffold on the main floor of the church. There is = a double door into the main floor of the church, so that part of the removal would be fairly convenient. Likewise, a truck can back right to the church front doorstep.   This organ is being offered, as is, on a buyer-to-remove basis. The = asking price is $2,000. Other serious offers will be entertained.   An E. M. Skinner celeste/harp, It was a part of the Opus 500 installed in 1924 in a mansion in Guilford, Baltimore City. It was removed in 1959, and was working when removed. It has been in storage since then; first in the church's old parsonage (since destroyed) and then in the sanctuary of the old church. It has 61notes and has the following information on a label attached to = one end:   Skinner Organ Co.-Boston Celesta Action Organ 500 F 484 8" (Wind Pressure).   The dimensions of the action are: 91" long 64" High 18" deep.   One wooden rod appears to have been broken while in the church nave, but it would be easily repaired. No other damage is apparent.   We are asking $1,000 for the harp, again on a buyer-to-remove, as-is = basis, and would enterain other serious offers.   If anyone reading this is interested, please contact   V. David Barton 9024 Groff's Mill Drive Owings Mills, MD 21117 410-356-9648 e-mail address: vdbarton@erols.com

John Weaver made a recording of the organ in First Presbyterian Church, LaGrange, Georgia for the Wicks Organ Company. A copy of this can be obtained by going to the Wicks site and asking for one. http://www.wicks.com/organ Brent Johnson The Organ Web Ring http://www.organwebring.com brent@organwebring.com   ----- Original Message ----- From: "Storandt, Peter" <pstorandt@okcu.edu> To: "'PipeChat'" <pipechat@pipechat.org> Sent: Thursday, January 13, 2000 9:02 AM Subject: RE: John Weaver     > > > -----Original Message----- > From: Innkawgneeto@webtv.net [mailto:Innkawgneeto@webtv.net] > Sent: Wednesday, January 12, 2000 9:44 PM > To: pipechat@pipechat.org > Subject: Re: John Weaver > > > John Weaver is at Madison Ave. Presbyterian, which has a luscious > Casavant.
