Description: Organ - Pipe Organ,Tracker, 5 Stops A=440/A=415, 51 Notes

This small tracker organ was built in 1966 by the Andover Organ Company of Methuen, MA for the Bradford College, a small liberal arts school in Haverhill, Massachusetts.

This instrument has been well maintained throughout its life. When the school closed in 2002 I bought this instrument and had it returned to concert ready condition by Juget-Sinclair Organbuilders of Montreal. It has subsequently been maintained by them and was revoiced in the winter of 2003.

It is currently being used as a continuo instrument for in-home concerts but it has enough volume for a medium-sized hall or a church. It would be well suited to a professional musician, a serious student or a dedicated amateur player as a home or studio instrument. Its small size and portability would make it admirably suited to a professional or amateur touring ensemble, a seasonal church or music camp, a school or a summer music academy. It would make a fine addition to a music festival or concert venue that would like to have its own small organ. While I have it tuned to A=415, it could easily be brought back to A=440 (modern pitch) if desired infact this is its "native" pitch.

The casework is all in cherry. The panel doors slide closed and can be locked -- even the original lock and key from 1966!


Although small, this organ is the real thing. The C-d''' (51 notes) compass and 5 stops make it ideal for continuo and for organ literature from the 15th, 16th and 17th centuries -- John Bull, Sweelinck, Pachelbel, Kerl, and even much of Bach.

Stops:

8' Gedeckt (all wood, wood stoppers)
4' Rohrflote (tin alloy, tin head stoppers)
2' Principal (tin alloy, tin collar stoppers)
I/V Mixture (tin alloy, tin collar stoppers)
Also included is an 8' Regal (reed) stop, including blower board which replaces the 2' Principal and a complete set of 51 regal pipes. All of these pipes work, however they will require some maintenance.

Blower:

Meidinger blower, appears to have been replaced in the last few years. This blower alone is worth approximately $2,500.00.

As you can see, it is quite small.

Dimensions: height 93" width 66" depth 33" weight: 350 lbs approximately / 2.36m x 1.68m x .84m, mass 160 kg.

The casework can be disassembled for transport or storage quite easily. The bottom 6 notes of the Gedeckt stop are on a side chamber which can be removed when the case work is taken off. Included with the instrument are five pipe trays, boxes for storing the pipes for transport. I moved this instrument myself all the disassembly and reassembly was done easily as all the pipes are individually labeled.The casework comes off easily with a screwdriver and can be reassembled in about 15 minutes.

Shipping will be by freight, and depending upon method/location/speed can vary dramatically. Please inquire if you need a rate and I will provide information.

Also available for local pickup at no charge.
