  • Baldwin 635

    A Baldwin 635 has become availabe in my area and the church is willing to part with it for free. I have looked on Jan Girardot's Electronic Organ Referance List and do not see this organ listed. Can any one tell me about the time this organ was in production. I have seen post on the 632,626 and 645. I suspect that this organ was produced during this period. The Organ was working before they moved it, However, when the church tried hooking the organ back up. It no longer works. Reading some of the post about the other Baldwin Silent Touch series they all seem to be plaged with soldering issues on the circut boards. If all the circut boards need to be resodered can any one tell me about what kind of time and investment one might be looking at?

    Another Question I Have Is About The Audio System. How many channels Does this organ Have and How are they set up? Can it be voiced and leveled?

        I'm not sure about actually voicing the Baldwin Silent Touch models, but i've set up a few. The audio system is 5 channels; one for bass, and four for mids and treble (two swell, two great, pedal upperwork borrowed if I recall correctly). These organs used a Baldwin EA-5 amplifier which has all five channels in one chassis, indepently adjustable. Each amp powered three speaker cabinets; 1 bass, and two smaller sized mid/treble speakers having two channels each. I'm guessing the amps aren't present, or are they thinking they'll try to reuse them with something else?

          Thank-you for the information Dave, unfortunately the amps were not a part of the deal. Would you know what I can get that will work with good results ?

            Your best bet is to try and find original equipment, less hassle. In lieu of that, you could try a powered mixer of some sort, but i'm sure it would have to be 5 channels or better. What i'm not sure of in suggesting that, is if the organ's output signals would be too strong or weak for conventional equipment.

              Well I Finnaly Got my Baldwin 635 Home. Had to turn it up on it's side to get it out of the church. While on it's side we heard something Banging around on the inside. Well what do you know when we looked in back we found an Organ Crafters Amplifier dangling and flopping around. LOL. The church did find one speaker Cabinet that they think came with the Organ. LOL. Well I got the Organ home hooked up the only speaker Cabinet turned the organ on the speaker comes on but no sound. The stop lights do not come on except for the swell unison off. Any Ideas???

                Best advice would come from Music Electronics. You can get exact information in our archives. Someone recently mentioned the phone couldn't be reached but I found the website still active and a skyp link for the phone. JBird is also especially knowledgeable in the area of these late model Baldwins. If you found the amp loose that may well mean that someone had a look at the organ, deemed it unrepairable (financially feasible for the church), and that led to the decision to offer the organ for free. A copy of the manual and alot of troubleshooting patience could be required to resurrect the organ. I hope this is something you have the time and inclination to pursue. There are alot of speaker recommendations in our archives. It is important to remember that organs play best through organ speakers in most cases. Fortunately many are available from parted instruments these days. Given the age of the instrument I don't really think it was a wise move for the church to keep the old cabinet. It likely won't prove too useful in any future installation.

                  Would Allen Monitor II Speaker Cabinets Work on A Baldwin 635 with a Organ Crafters amplifier Model STK086?? These cabinets have one 12" wolfer, a mid-range, and one tweeter??
