    Re: New pipe organ for my parish



    How about this idea that I just thought up:



    Place ads in the major organ & choir magazines (AGO Magazine, The Diapason Magazine etc.) inviting builders who may be interested in building you a new organ to contact you...a bit like a tendering process, though you don't necessarily go for the cheapest.



    Invite the builders around one at a time, and tell them your budget to see what they might come up with.



    Has anyone ever tried this kind of method, rather than going through a large directory of organ builders one by one?

    Make a serious offer - Serious inquires only!




    I am selling my entire collection of pipework
    (61-ranks, 4,028 pipes) that was professionally
    removed from two organs: 41-ranks from a 6-division
    1920 Austin and 20-ranks from a 1930 Moller. All
    pipes are voiced on 5 inches wind pressure (with a few
    exceptions on 10 inches).




    Pipework is in EXCELLENT CONDITION! Very few miters.
    LARGE SCALE PIPEWORK. All pipework (excluding the
    16 foot Open Wood basses) is crated - neatly and
    securely in well-built crates with individual plywood
    tops. Approximately 120-crates in 8-22 foot lengths.




    The collection has one Skinner 8 foot harmonic Tuba.




    Those who know me and have seen the pipes can attest
    to the quality that this collection represents and the
    extensive packing care.




    I am selling all pipework to ONE buyer. But please
    BEWARE . . . this collection will fill one Roadway
    trailer completely (and maybe more) with only enough
    room for a piccolo pipe to breathe! Just park and
    pack - its that easy!




    The entire collection is for sale as a whole unit.




    I do not wish to part-out a rank here or there.




    Serious inquires only. Best offer takes it all away!

    Steve:




    Thank-you for the information .I also have the FCC -Ygn Hillgreen Lane et al organ here in the shop that I need to find a home for.I offered the Austin to St Charles (they are considering a 3/33 Schantz for $750,000.00) but they told me that they cannot afford to do anything right now. I offered the Austin, enlarged to about 45 or so ranks, with facade pipes, for $250,000.00, but they said no. I guess they would rather have a Schantz at triple the price.




    The Austin was completely restored with a Peterson relay and console updates in 1992. However, I would want to even update it further. The5 divisions were Echo, Swell, Great, Choir and Pedal - no solo. Beautiful reeds and strings as well as a color pallet of wood and metal flutes (Rohr, Chiminey, Gross, Ged, Mel, Clara, Harmonic and open)! Of course, being a 1924 instrument, it lacks mutations and principal choruses. I can fix that!




    Well, thank-you again!

    I purchased the 4/31 Austin from Roosevelt Jr. High School in Altoona. It is a wonderful instrument and was in near mint condition. The school is being torn down Aug 1 this year. I need to find a home for it.







    Good to hearing from you - I hope all is well.

    Lively-Fulcher and J.W. Walker come to mind as well.  The local L-F in my area gave the Church very very much bang for the buck.  I don't know if the financial situation favors English builders right now, but J.W. Walker makes fantastic, cohesive-yet-flexible instruments.

    Mr R is the diocesan organ advisor for LA




    he has helped an Iowa builder with scaling an organ in the LA RC cathedral




    then he did likewise for said man from Iowa in Kimmel Philly




    wondering if he will also assist with the new 75-90 rk over 5 mil job at WNC due in 2009




    that website says that the heritage of the 1930s skinner will be honored by keeping some old pipes




    what about the a-s?




    the new perm organist at WNC is scott dettra




    the new gallery organ for WNC will be a mechanical in the French idiom




    question




    why would a high anglican place want an entire organ along French lines?




    why mechanical?




    how will that contribute to the liturgy?

    the organ i have suggested for u in a previous post was selected from among many




    a] builder known to make solid instruments




    b] priced at a bargain




    c] the builder under new ownership can do all the work of refurb at the plant and any modifications needed and give u a magnificent piece of music equipment that will last 50 years and probably cut you a deal since they are trying to get that firm re-established




    d] they can include a new organ warranty if the work is done in-factory and the final voicing in your edifice to assure good tonal results

    I'd forgotten all about the Rosales thing, I would be interested to know how Rosales managed to not finish his work ad get paid as though he had. That however is matter for PMs or other means of contact, or another thread, but not this one.
