FS: Link Theatre Organ With Quad Roll Player
By Steve Grattan

Hi, I have a friend with a 1926 Link, 2 manual, 5 rank theatre organ
for sale.  The organ comes with a rare 4-roll player mechanism, 36
multi-tune rolls and a test roll -- all which appear to be new in the
boxes and never played.  The Encyclopedia of the American Theatre
Organ, pp. 281-283, lists 3 of the 4 roll mechanisms that were made.

The specs are Opus 620; Five ranks (Violin, Violin Celeste, Tibia,
Vox Humana, Diapason), total 355 pipes, full pedalboard, swell shades,
percussion (tuned chimes, marimba, orchestra bells, Chrysoglott), Toy
Counter (bass drum, snare drum, sleigh bells, wood block, tambourine,
tympani, castanets, Chinese drum, cymbal), blower # 19339 (appears to
be rebuilt).

The organ appears complete, judged to be in average condition, and
includes original relay cabinet.  According to the Encyclopedia it
was used in the Bradley Theatre in Elko, Nevada.

Pictures are available by email.  Interested parties will be put in
contact with owner.  I am just listing it for a good friend.
