For Sale:

This organ is powered by a windbox and valve mechanism that supplies 61 church organ pipes made from wood and metal.

The church pipes originate from a 150 year old church organ that was removed from a chapel in Colwyn Bay, Wales, UK.

The organ is powered by wind alone and not by CD or tapes.

Traditionally organs of this type had folded cardboard books fed through them to open and close the valves that produce the music. This organ uses a computer SD card reader to do this, ensuring that the music is continuous and remains of a high quality without the need to replace music books.

Offers in the range of £1000.

Reducing the price to £500, as we need the storage space, the organ is working but could do with some loving care, it is in need of a tuning.
