Hi - So glad that you have experience with these fantastic instruments. This one belonged to Uncle Warner, and he played it almost daily up until 6 years ago; it has not been played since and shows some wear. I have no idea when it was first purchased, but do know that it was more than 20 years ago. I does make sounds and I'm sure that it does need maintenance, but am unable to test it out properly as I'm not a musician. I need an idea of how to price it for sale, please. I also have a Mirantz vacuum-tube console radio, with record player, that needs to be priced. The specs are as follows:
Lowery Electric Organ Theatre Deluxe Console Model H-25R w/rhythm unit; horse-shoe styling, completely transistorized, solid-state circuitry, 61-note manuals, full 25-note pedal keyboard, and Automatic Orchestra Control. Unknown wood type.
Mirantz Vacuum Tube Radio console w/record player Model SP1515 900Hz 8ohms Unused for years and in fair condition. Unknown if it works; unknown wood type.
Thank you! for any insight you can offer. --Bonny--
Thank you so much for explanation of the answer - it helps a whole lot.
I do have one further question, as I do not know "woods" either. It is a darker wood, but I don't think it's walnut - maybe oak? Is there a particular wood that is generally used for this type of organ? --Bonny--
