American Reed Organ For Sale

Recommended Posts

Hi all,

 

Went to church at Cloford (between Nunney and Bruton, Somerset) on 14th October for the morning service and noticed a quaint reed organ in the church there. However, the reed organ is for sale as it has been superceeded by an electronic.

 

The instrument was built by Burdett of Chicago, USA in 1860 but their operation was destroyed in the Great Fire of Chicago in 1871.

 

The vicar accepted my offer to advertise this organ online and I have done so. Details can be found at this address, along with a photo:

Lovely looking instrument: would suit small chapel or perhaps a house with enough space. The parish want it to go to a good home though.

Hi Dave

 

I would suggest trying the Reed Organ List online (let me know if you want me to forward this). I wouldn't hold out too much hope though - American organs are relatively common still.

 

Every Blessing

Not at all our side of the Channel!

Please let us some days to see if someone is

interested in Belgium or France; I linked on the file

on Organographia.

This one on ebay sold recently for £1650

but the one your selling looks a good deal better. 40 years ago there used to be a good market for these in Holland. I sold 2 through Exchange and Mart to fund the acquisition of a pipe organ for my church.
