http://thepianoworld.comhttp://facebook.com/doug.l.bullock This organ has a lovely decorative pipe top (not shown) and it will soon be moved to its home in an historic house in Hannibal Missouri. This is a slide show of the restoration of this unrestorable reed organ. Sound is this organ after it was restored. This came with foot bellows removed, but they were not successful in getting it to play with an electric motor so it came never being heard for decades. Once inside we found extensive mouse damage. If the organ had not been a pipe top model of Clough and Warren it would have been tossed out. This fine organ brand is very desirable by collectors and pipe top organs are always in very high demand. The owner will display and play it in his historic home in Mark Twain's home town, Hannibal Missouri where Mark Twain;s organ resides in the Mark Twain Museum.
(We have moved Mark Twain's huge Orchestrelle player reed organ twice now and hope to someday be able to restore it as it has not worked in years.)
