  • Need help with identification and specification of a Baldwin Theatre organ fomr 1980.

    I came accross a Baldwin Electronic Theatre organ and I cna't read the model. At first, I thought it was a Cinima III, but it isn't based on photographs I have seen. I would really appreciate your help in identifying the model and hopefully it's specification. The ad says:

    "This is one beautiful BALDWIN CINEMA Theater Organ* that is perfect for churches, meeting halls, and silent movies :-). It has more bells and whistles (and drums) than your creative talents may use! Beautiful walnut solid wood and the sound is great! Features include: FantomFingers, RealRhythm, FunMachine, and FunBass. The organ also has the ability to program rhythms. This theater organ is fully digital. Built in 1980, the sound is eternal. At 300+ lbs., it is almost as big as its sound. Stack of music books included. Buyer is responsible for moving/shipping. You will not be disappointed with this instrument, either in appearance, sound or capabilities. Prior to shipping it was carefully maintained and in perfect condition. This is a BIG, BEAUTIFUL, AMAZINGLY VERSATILE musical instrument."

    Thank you for your help, Steven

        What is sometimes termed "analogue under digital control", perhaps? Or one where the lines between digital and analogue are blurred. 1983 was just on the cusp of where manufacturers went into digital tone generation - and also where some decided that enough was enough, or simply went under....

          Re: Organ Identification

          Hi, thank you for the information. Do you happen to have the specs for this organ?

          Yes, there is an issue with our Hosting company for the websiute that we have been working for for sometime. I think we just need to go to a different hosting company as these people just are not quick to do anything :/ We will have it back up soon. Thank you for trying to check it out.

          Best wishes,

          Steven

            You could try checking through the Gallery on the forum. There is a section for brochures and it's possible someone may have uploaded it. There's also a very active Vintage Organs Group on Facebook and that's worth a shot. Some of the members there are also on here so if someone does have the specs I'm sure they'll let you know.
