Wicks unit pipe organ, opus 4671, (c.1960), 4-ranks (Principal, Fagot, Rohr Flute, Gemshorn, all unified and duplexed), 2-manuals, AGO pedalboard, direct electric chest action, with quiet running Swiss Meidinger blower, and rectifier. Stop action was converted to electric gang switches at some unknown time. The organ is encased (6' x 6' and will accommodate an 8' ceiling, however the tallest bass pipes are nearly 10 feet in height) and is completely under expression with glass shade panels. The front of the case was originally covered with a metal lattice panel---thus the pipework is in pristine (as-new) condition--the Rohr Flute is especially nice! The bench and console checks could use some refinishing. For being a half-century old, there are few flaws to be seen. There is a swell expression shoe and a crescendo pedal. There is no combination. The languids of the fluework have fairly restrained voicing nicks making for a more modern sound. The full crescendo is reasonably robust and thus the organ could be used in a small church or chapel as well as being a rehearsal organ for a residence. There are 3 offset bass chests arranged both behind and alongside (outside) both the C and C# sides of the case. The crowns of the pedals have very little wear in the lower margin. This is a true,unreserved sale for a buyer residing in the lower 48 contiguous American States.

The organ is conveyed with neither express nor implied warranty although everything asserted here is attested to by the seller. 72-hour sale. Potential buyers in Arkansas, Tennessee, Kentucky, Ohio, (or points nearby) would do well to consider the organ since it will be in transit through those areas over the weekend of 15-16 October, 2011, (and thus can be delivered for a nominal charge to be determined by the buyer's location and a buy-it-now option--please signal your serious intention early). The organ has been completely dismantled with its pipes stored in trays with the trebles wrapped and the trays padded.

As of 3:00pm, 15 October, 2011, I have arrived with the loaded organ in Memphis, Tennessee. Since this is a somewhat central location, I plan to wait here for the conclusion of the sale to see what arrangements the buyer wishes to make regarding pickup ordelivery. Please stay in contact by cell phone 440-865-5059 as I have only Public LIbrary access to a computer while on the road. 440-865-5059
