Almost exactly a year ago we were asked to find a new home for a very pretty small pipe organ in a Methodist Church that was about to be converted into flats. It was a sensationally successful social media campaign finding many offers for the instrument and a post that reached over 175,000 readers. We hope we can achieve the same again with the instrument featured below.
We have just been asked to see if we can help find this interesting small pipe organ (2 manual) a new owner to enjoy its charm. It is currently located in a house near Tiverton and was built by an amateur organist and clergyman for his own home practice use and enjoyment.
Pipe organ specifications
It is an unusually large specification for a home instrument though I imagine many of the upper pitches will be derived and not from independent ranks.
Nackt Horn 8
Klein Prinzipal 4
Nasat 2 2/3 (We think)
Lieblich Flote 4
Spitz Pfeife 2
Neun Zehnte 1 1/3
- Height 3m
- Width 1.84m
- Depth 2.25m
Relocating this instrument
There is reasonable time available to relocate this instrument which is available free to any person who is prepared to dismantle and take away at their own expense. There is good off road parking at the house so this removal process need not be too rushed.
It appears the action may need some TLC with sticking notes but as it has to be completely dismantled any repairs can be done before the rebuild. It looks from the photo that the pedal has electric action.
To arrange a viewing of the instrument please contact Tim Greenslade by e mail at firstname.lastname@example.org
I have had a passion for church organs since the tender age of 12. I own and run Viscount Organs with a close attention to the detail that musicians appreciate; and a clear understanding of the benefits of digital technology and keeping to the traditional and emotional elements of organ playing.
