  • Allen ADC 4300 with Drawknobs

    I thought I'd post here info about the sale of my Allen ADC-4300 with drawknobs. I put it on eBay with a "buy it now" price of $2950, starting price at $1,000. I got one bid at the starting price, and quite a few questions about the instrument, so in that price range it garnered quite a bit of interest. I also posted it on the local news channel's free classified ads for $2950, and also got a number of inquiries. But only one person arranged to come see it (with a week of listing) and she is buying it for $2500.

    So I guess that's about the market price for these instruments. Incidentally, my local Allen dealer sells ADC-3100 & 3160 models for about $5,000--and it's a far less capable instrument.

    Mine has a B20 subwoofer for the 32 ft Contra Bourdon, and it does a reasonable job in a home--it doesn't shake the walls, but that's not how I use the 32 Bourdon--just to purr quietly.

    Would have considered it but with the shipping added it would have been over my budget.

      Toodles, Your ADC-4300 is quite a nice organ. Someone really got a good deal!

      My B-20 does an excellent job in church, and provides quite a presence when using the 32' with a full combination in the ca. 120-seat church. If I didn't already have one, I'd have been interested! Congratulations on the sale and finding an interested owner.

      Nice organ though. I was quoted $4000 for shipping a smaller organ by one of the places mentioned as being cheaper than others. Average of $1200 shipping. I was reading that truckers want to charge a $2.50/mile now. Imagine the cost for shipping then. That'd be $5080 for the smaller organ I mentioned. It's too bad. Glad you did find a buyer, even if at a lower price.

        My buyer was a very nice lady who is a church organist--she"never thought" she would be able to find an organ she could afford. Apparently the 4300 is a much better organ than she has at the church where she plays.

          It is nice that you were able to help this lady out. My playing improved greatly when I got a practice instrument at home many years ago. Depending on how far you are from the church, sometimes it is not worth driving there if all you have is an hour or so. With an instrument at home, even a free half hour is beneficial.
