  • Just Bought D.W. Karn 67953

    Wife Purchased it, WILL not Restore it. The left pump works and it does play, right is no longer connected to? No Idea! Plan to make it into a bar since I have Two Clavanova.
    How hard is it to remove the guts
    2. Is it worth anything
    Have Picture but no idea how to post it It is a pallor Model called "Woodstock"
    Advise before I take this apart
    Thank You
    George P.
    NUMBER SHOULD BE 37953, Sorry

      This is like going to a Classic Ford message board and saying:
      "I have a 1969 Mustang, it has some rust and hasn't run in a long time; I'm going to fill it with dirt and make a planter. Any tips?"

        Words like that may earn you a good clip on the ear from a few dedicated ones! Try and find someone to take and restore it - there may be several in your area. Please do not destroy such a piece of history!
        Thanks

          The picture(s) did not come through. Usually you will need a few posts on this message board before you can post pictures. It would be nice to see the pictures, if you can, please upload them at:
          http://rosdev.synology.me:81/index.p...n_registration

          All you need to fill out on that form is just an email (it can be a fake one), scroll to the bottom of the page, click browse and select the pictures you want, then fill out the captcha and click submit.

          Alternatively, complete a full registration of the organ at www.reedsoc.org and your sin of destroying a Karn reed organ from late 1898 will be reconciled :-)

          Thanks!
          To play a reed organ or harmonium, it helps to disconnect your feet from your brain and connect them to your emotions.
          Most of all, be creative, make music and have fun...

            Have NOT Touched it, just picked it up. It now PLAYS a little the right Pedal burlap is undone, all stops work and I found a break front that will become the bar. PS O Collect Vintage Cars and have a Fender Strat from the 1960's. When I was told that it was worth NOTHING that was the bases for my WILL NOT RESTORE. SO now I need to take off the back and see where the Burlap Flap came from.

              Posted the picture and guessed at some of the answers since I have not unloaded this from the trailer yet.

                  Certainly looks like we have another one cured.... Great! Now lets see some pictures and shares of your experiences. I said it before: Once the bug has bit, its bit!! Good luck!

                    Irp, it would help to know where the organ is located. I am in Michigan. But Im thinking if you list your area, you might generate some interest.

                      It is in it's new home in Edgefield S.C. It will join the Two Clavanova and the Fender Stratocaster in the music room with the Karn in the PUB next to the Bar that is yet to be built
