3 Manual Saville Organ (free)
FREE – last chance… you remove from my home located in north-central Ohio. Circa 1970s 3-manual Saville organ. I bought this from a church in Toledo, Ohio in 1983 & installed it in my home. Everything operated normally but after a number of years I eventually began experiencing electrical issues, primarily with the main amplifier (to the best of my knowledge). I am now living in a different residence and need this instrument removed. In addition to the console pictured are a large electronics cabinet, 15 speaker housings with two 12″ speakers each, plus 2 speaker housings with eight 12″ speakers each. Also included is all the requisite wiring, the main amp, etc. I also have a number of Saville electrical schematics. The organ console sits on a loft 32″ above the first floor of my home, so a lift of some sort will be necessary to remove it. First person to remove it from my home gets it.
