Busker Organ Air Supply
Having never built anything like a bellows or reservoir I decided to do a test build of the Busker using scrap materials and an old leather jacket. I used the bellows and reservoir to build a motorized air supply for testing pipes.

I later decided to forgo the Busker project in favor of building the Senior 20. The air supply included an air box and a pair of valves which proved to be very handy for testing pipes and tracker bars.

There is not a lot of difference in the construction of the Busker and the Senior 20.
