    Relisted again and now down to a monkey.

    As an aside, I assume the “Estey” experiment is done and dusted? Seems a long time since we heard anything about it.

      It would seem the one aspect of Lowrey these Chinese “Esteys” have got absolutely right is the apocalyptic depreciation.

      I know & it hasn't even been plugged in yet!

      When this saga began in May, it was on for a starting bid of £1K and a BIN of £2K. Next stop: “Free to a good home”.

    Goes to show what Allen's must really think of the organ if they won't even buy it back at that price!

      You’d think Allens would step in just to get the damn thing off eBay. Imagine trying to punt one of these new with that hanging round like a bad smell.

      I would have thought that too but then again Allens are the ones trying to flog a faulty LSI Hammond for just shy of a grand

      Good point. Allens’ absurd used prices (ironically the only prices they ever publish) suggest they’re totally unaware of what organs change hands for in the real world on eBay.

    I checked out the brochure for the 2021 Music Extravaganza on the Allen's Music website. It says that they will be demonstrating Estey, Ringway, Wersi & Lowrey at this year's event.

      Thin gruel on the menu, there. Someone went to catering college in the seventies.

    Apparently they’ve already started shilling the new Austin Maestro on their paid-up-punters-only Patreon channel, but I’ve yet to see anything shared publicly about it.

      What I'd like to know is can it be spec'd with a talking dashboard? 😂

      I wondering if anybody on here will be attending the event?

        “New from Allens: the organ the Jen Allegro could have been!”

      Update on the Estey Freedom III - from what I can gather, this has been dropped off at a charity store...

        Bids starting at 99p on eBay...

      I see that the Music Extravaganza section of the Allen's website now has "limited places remaining" plastered across the top in bold red lettering. I wonder if the event is actually almost booked out or are Allen's just using the classic "fear of loss" sales technique?

        According to what Tom Horton told in one of the latest videos just about 2 rooms are available.

      I see our old friend the unloved “Estey” Freedom III has resurfaced on the ‘Bay, with a starting bid of change from a quid.

        If this thing hasn't even been used, surely Allen's would be willing to buy it back for a fraction of what they sold it for, then pass it off as new & sell it again for the full price to some unsuspecting individual who is none the wiser...

            Someone I know is checking out an HS-8 in Portsmouth this weekend. I must get on the phone to him right now & tell him to drive to Newcastle instead. Just kidding!

            I was wondering if this was the same Estey that did the rounds of eBay recently but then again the finish looks to be a different shade.

            Meanwhile at a certain dealership in Norfolk, there's no mention of Estey for this year's Music Extravaganza. All about Wersi, Ringway & the usual parade of very expensive boxes of flashing lights...

              I think we can safely assume that zombie-Estey has already joined Lowrey in the great big organ showroom in the sky.

                I’m reminded of that Seinfeld routine, “It's like a spider in the toilet struggling for survival. And even if you know it's not going to make it, you kind of root for it for a second."
