Pipe Organs

1929 Casavant Theatre/Smaller Organ
I have a 1929 Casavant Organ,  No. 1259, 1928, that I think is sacred and am seeking someone or organization that could give it a great home. Video The organ is in great shape and was owned by two of Chicago’s most prominent organists. It is currently being stored in Pasadena and can be assembled for anyone who may be interested. What is most important is that it to go to a great home that appreciates it. A complete donation, 3-5 year lend, or a purchase are all possibilities.  Casavant Frere, established in 1879 in Quebec, is considered among the world’s greatest pipe prgan companies. Casavant organs can cost many millions of dollars and are the preferred organ of some of the finest cathedrals and concert halls in the world. From 1879-2014 they had made 3900 pipe organs, only custom and handmade. Contact Brandon at 502-727-3657, and Email. (posted 10/15/2018)

Electronic Organs

New Rodgers Infinity 484 Four Manual
A few months ago, I purchased a new Rodgers Infinity 484 Four manual organ for my church. The board decided not to install this organ at this time for reasons beyond my control. This organ is available now and can be shipped anywhere in the US or even globally. The organ includes twelve tone cabinets and is capable of filling a 1000 seat sanctuary or can used in home or school use. The finish is light oak and has had less than 25 hours of use. Most installations cost close to $200,000 with sales taxes and installations. Please visit the Rodgers website to see the specifications of this incredible organ.
Interested parties only please. Price quoted upon request. Email (posted 10/12/18)
