We have for sale this 20 note street organ which we built in 1990, this was a custom made organ specifically built for an older couple who for medical reasons required the organ to be very easy to turn.
This customer also had to have the organ as small as possible, at the time they were using a Fiat micro camper and the organ had to fit in to a very small space for transportation, so it was constructed to look similar to one of our standard models but is in fact much smaller and has a removable plinth for transportation.
The organs wind is provided by a small external 12 volt DC blower. The original owner made his own cart and he placed the blower and battery in that cart. When the owner finally retired from travelling the organ they did away with the cart and made the bottom plinth you see with it today and used it as a house organ.
The organ does require restoration. It can be purchased as is or we can quote for a full restoration at extra cost.
As the organ is blower operated it would be a fairly easy conversion, to add a motorised drive to the key frame and fit a fairground front thus making it suitable for a juvenile ride. Alternatively it could be used again as a house organ, for street use, or just restored as it is.
The organ has one music book with it currently; we can of course supply further new music at extra cost if required.
The organ could be of interest to an amateur organ builder to restore as a project, or it could be restored by us and if required altered to suit the new owners use. Why not contact us today to discuss the purchase of this organ.
