    # Ooh, depreciation ... #

    ... as Roy Castle might have sung.

    I miss the eBay thread on here, maybe a different one devoted to market pricing/trends in general rather than individual listings will survive being shunted out.

    I’ll kick us off with one I spotted this morning: the Lowrey Imperial on the ‘bay for six large. We could never drag a definitive price out of Allens these new, but there was talk of them being well north of £50K. That’s some haircut. If you’re brave (and lucky) these late Lowreys are now trumping the late Orlas for value.

    I got £49,950 out of them for an Aria Pro. An Imperial wouldn’t have beaten that, would it?

      Although older, the Imperial came with a full pedal-board and a full surround sound system built into the seat, so could well have topped the Aria Pro.

        Maybe then. Imperial 25-note pedal board and bench speakers, Aria Pro 30-note pedal board and no bench speakers.

          How are the classical and theatre organ reproductions on the Lowery Imperial and Aria Pro? Do they have any fancy Allen-like features like the expression shutter modelling etc?

          I wonder if there will ever be cheap Aria Pros though as I reckon they were barely in the double digits production wise...
