    I am really taken back at all of the Allen Organ circuit cards recently listed on Ebay by the somewhat infamous South Florida Allen organ salesman. You know, the ones all wrapped in aluminum foil oh my... I wouldn't touch one of them with a plug nickle would you? My point is conductive foil/static discharge/zapped circuits. Sort of like buying a used engine stored in salt water maybe...

    Several people on here have purchased parts from him. It's better than having them go to the dump or the recycling plant. Or being left inside instruments that are re-purposed as virtual pipe organ consoles with the original tone generation equipment left to rot.
    Larry is my name; Allen is an organ brand. Allen RMWTHEA.3 with RMI Electra-Piano; Allen 423-C+Gyro; Britson Opus OEM38; Steinway AR Duo-Art 7' grand piano, Mills Violano Virtuoso with MIDI; Hammond 9812H with roll player; Roland E-200; Mason&Hamlin AR Ampico grand piano, Allen ADC-5300-D with MIDI, Allen MADC-2110.

      Actually, foil wrapping was the way some computer cards were shipped in the past. Remember the foil envelopes some computer devices were shipped in? On the other hand, if it were shipped in styrofoam....

      Way too many organs to list, but I do have 5 Allens:
      • MOS-2 Model 505-B / ADC-4300-DK / ADC-5400 / ADC-6000 (Symphony) / ADC-8000DKC
      • Lowrey Heritage (DSO-1)
      • 11 Pump Organs, 1 Pipe Organ & 7 Pianos

        Actually you are dead wrong as anti static pouches were and are still used for proper, safe shipping and storage! The multiple foil wrapped cards on Ebay either all sold like hotcakes or have been removed because of poor photo quality perhaps, har!...
