  • Name/identify this organ (puzzle)



    I found this photograph on ebay, and the console looks quite unique, was wondering if someone here could identify it, just out of curiousity?

    any thoughts on this one?

      Excellent guess, K-phone; or perhaps an Estey?

        Something about the key-cheeks reminds me of 1920's vintage Casavants, but I haven't found any photos that would confirm that.</P>


        On the other hand, the Estey suggestion may be closer to the mark.</P>


        I don't know what that "swiss-cheese" panel is at the upper right side of the console, perhaps some sort of stop setter?</P>


        Anyway... if you look at this Estey photo, you will see a very similar device located in approximately the same location:</P>


        </P>


        [edit] Having studied this photo, I am beginning to believe that the panel is an indicator to show which piston has been pressed (I'm thinking it is a "blind" combination action).For each divisionthere is one more piston than there are indicator lights - presumably one of the pistons would be a cancel.</P>

            I haven't a clue where or what organ it is..just thought that console was unique enough that there was a chance someone could identify it..or at least the builder......great responses!!!!!!!!!
