  • Info on organ

    Working on another Reed organ. Trying to figure out the make and I'm baffled.

    All I can find is a logo/name on the front called GLADSTONE.

    Based solely on the hardware and screws I feel like it's from the 30s or 40s, but honestly I don't know. And the front plate/board where the word GLADSTONE is written is in a strange stone like faux stone paint. Could this actually be original??

    Here is a short clip of my son playing it.

    Reminds me a little of the Yamaha however, if it were Yamaha the logo would be prominent, still the lines and especially the bench reminds strongly of that make. It you are correct in trying to pinpoint the years of manufacture, and you could be correct, may be another pointer towards a Jap design. Nice instrument though, and a good sound.

    "Don't make war, make music!" Hammonds, Lowreys, Yamaha's, Gulbransens, Baldwin, Technics, Johannus. Reed organs. Details on request... B-)

      Thank you for your reply. We have the organ torn apart and we are starting to restore it. The reeds are especially hard to get to on this organ, but I'd like to pull a reed and see if there are any markings on them.

      Thanks Again Organfella
