We have a small busker organ for sale.

18.5 inch wide by 14.25 inch deep by 22.5 inch tall.

It needs repairs. We bought it a few years ago from a friend who bought it from the Ringling Museum in Florida in the 80s when the museum was having financial problems.

We don't know what kind it is and repairing it is beyond our expertise!

It makes a sucking sound when cranked so maybe it is the bellows?

We are not interested in shipping. We live in Niagara Falls Canada.

The asking price is $1800 USD.

We love busker organs and have a working Deleika organ that we do street entertaining with.

52-key Verbeeck Street Organ, built in 1976 by Johnny Verbeeck and his father.

Bought by myself in May 2010 we have extensively repaired and continue to show and play the organ at many events since.

There are approx. 100 books of music on the organ which will give almost a full day's playing without repeating.  The Organ can operate on either 240v mains or 110v DC off of a dynamo / showman's engine.

Trailer is in good condition with good serviceable tyres and on over run brakes but could be converted to air as all the tanks are still in place.  Only one bit of damage to the rear left hand side of the box truck, other than that it is in good dry condition and will tow anywhere with a full set of outside sheets for winter storage.

Genuine reason for sale due to 89-key organ near completion this summer and would rather let someone else enjoy this sweet little instrument with lots of history than have it kept in a shed rarely going out or seen on the rally scene.
