  • need help to identify if a pedal board is from a wurlitzer 4800 and/or AGO compliant

    Greetings: I need some help identifying if a pedalboard, which I may purchase for a midi project, is AGO compliant. I'm trying to determine this from pictures provided by the seller (attached). I can't just look at it because it is 5 hours away. The seller says that the pedalboard came from a late 50's wurlitzer organ that he has already sold, but he can't recall the organ's model number. He has provided a picture of the organ and two pictures of the pedalboard. That is where my question comes in: the organ looks like it is a wurlitzer model 4800 which would indicate that the pedals are AGO compliant. However, when I look at the actual pedalboard pictures, I'm not sure that they match what is in the organ picture. Would any one on the forum be able to advise me if the pedalboard pictures looks AGO compliant? or to be from the 4800?

    I'm new to the forum and this is my first post. I want to build a virtual pipe organ for home practice. Any advice would be much appreciated. Sincerely, BRK
    Great forum by the way!

    I think that this is an AGO Klann pedalboard. I cannot guarantee this, however. May I suggest that you send these pictures to Sandie at Klann? She should be able to verify (or un-verify) this with input from her colleagues. Klann has a website with contact information. I wish you every success!

        I don't see any sign of the wire harness or the dangling connectors on the back which would indicate it was Wurlitzer technology from the late 1960's. My 4500 has internal magnets and reed switches, and no tabs on the backs of the pedals.

          The Wurlitzer 4800 was an electronic reed organ built in the 1950's.

          The organ in the photo is a 4800, which had an AGO pedalboard.

            Hello! I'm also interested in organs! And sometimes I even have opportunity to play small organ positive but in the music school. I know one person who did the organ itself and I can asked him what him what material is better to choose.

              I concur that it's a 4800. I used to own one and it was identical.
