The Organ is for Sale!
I have decided to sell the organ. I was never able to play it properly, and I really do not need such a large and complicated instrument. I would hope that someone else can get better use from it. Here is a description from a selling point of view. There is more information on the main organ page.
For sale, a digital pipe organ built into a Klann/Moller console dating from the 1960’s. It is in light oak with cherry keydesk and stop jambs. A lot of solid oak, some veneered plywood, but generally very solidly built. It is heavy, and will require a truck with a ramp or preferably a lift gate to move it, similar to moving a piano. It is top heavy and will need to be firmly strapped into the truck.
The computer runs Windows 7, and the organ software is GrandOrgue. The computer is ready to take both Windows 10 and Hauptwerk if required. There is a Creative Live 5.1 soundcard in the computer. There are no speakers, but two Conn four-
The console has three 61-
CAVEATS: The organ is old and the SAMs (Stop Action Magnets) are showing their age. I have overhauled them all but occasionally one will misbehave.
Windows 7 limits RAM to two gigabytes, which means that presently a lot of sample sets cannot be installed. The OS should be upgraded to Windows 10. The computer has 8 gigs of RAM installed.
The Edirol USB interface may not function under Windows 10. I have looked for Windows 10 drivers and cannot find them. If you upgrade to Windows 10 you may need to use an alternative method to send the MIDI to the computer.
I feel that a fair price for this instrument is $2,500. If you come to purchase the organ and at that point decide you don’t want it, that is acceptable. Of course I cannot ship it, you must collect it from my home in Sherman Oaks, Los Angeles, California.
I have reworked the “positively dreadful” wiring mentioned in the main description.
