  • Where should posts about electrostatic reed organs be placed?

    Where should I post about electrostatic reed organs like the Wurlitzer Series 20, etc.? I have a WurliTzer 44 (IIRC) and want to collect all of the WurliTzer models, plus the Orgatron and the Hallman ES (type) reed organs. I was told that someone on this forum had collected a number of them. I don't know if that is current information though.

    Thank you,

    Steven

    Here in Home Organs is the best place for them, unless you know for certain that it's a church model. The lines between the two are a bit vague at some points in the early days of the home organ, so if in doubt, Home Organs. If we need to move a thread, we'll do so and leave a redirect 'pointer' up for a week.

      Hi,
      Welcome.
      I believe that you'd get the best response at "Home Organs" and "Repair: Electronic Organs"

        Hello Steven - I just came across this thread - years ago I had one of these (it was the Everett Orgatron, I think); I never got very far getting it working, but I remember it had a rather intricate pneumatic system for keying the reeds (not unlike the old tubular pneumatics you would see on some pipe organs of the period).

        I don't have any manuals on it but I may have some parts left (not sure what shape they would be in but they are "original" for sure!)

          I am trying to get a comprehensive list of every electrostatic reed organ built, the year made, the company that made it and the specs for each one. Is there anyone with that kind of knowledge of ES organs. I know that Everett, Wurlitzer and Hallman of Canada made them, but I don't know if there were any others. I am working on a piece for our library both online and hard-copy and have just some basic information so far. Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thank you, Steven
