    Thanks Tom, I'm going to miss that organ!
    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...

    Great video. Are you selling the organ, or moving it to a church or other owner?

    I was half expecting you to find a 32' Pedal Reed on the Doherty (but not really). My wife and I heard the piece played on the Klas Orgelblau organ at the Altenberger Dom in Germany a few years ago. The pump organ was surprisingly clear (not muddy), which surpassed my expectations. Then again, the organist's technique didn't hurt either!

    Thanks for sharing the video.

    Way too many organs to list, but I do have 5 Allens:
    • MOS-2 Model 505-B / ADC-4300-DK / ADC-5400 / ADC-6000 (Symphony) / ADC-8000DKC
    • Lowrey Heritage (DSO-1)
    • 9 Pump Organs, 1 Pipe Organ & 4 Pianos

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