A. B. Chase Pump Organ
This antique parlor pump organ was built in the 1890s and has been in a bedroom of my mother’s house for the past 51 years after it was willed to her by her great Aunt. It still works and is in great shape. It is located in Penn, PA (~ 30 miles outside of Pittsburgh). — A great piece for a real appreciation of the history and art of the organ! It can be yours for $400! You would need to pick it up. Email (posted 5/18/2017)

Holtkamp “Martini” Practice Organ
Built circa 1965 and in good condition despite heavy usage by Cleveland Institute of Music students. Dimensions: 61”deep x 133”wide x 106”tall. Five ranks of pipes. $4,500 as-is (buyer pick-up) or $18,000 for us to install it (plus travel expenses). Although not necessary, the leather is old enough that it would be economically wise to re-leather the instrument while it’s in our shop. This would restore it to like-new condition. Adding that work brings the cost to $30,000 (plus travel expenses). Email for more information. (posted 4/25/17)

Circa 1970’s 3-Manual Saville Organ (free)

The organ is located in north-central Ohio. It was purchased in 1983 & installed in my home. There are some electrical issues, primarily with the main amplifier. Included are a large electronics cabinet, 15 speaker housings with two 12″ speakers each, 2 speaker housings with eight 12″ speakers each, all the requisite wiring, the main amp, etc. as well as some 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 needed to remove it. Contact David, Email. (posted 5/24/17)
