FS: Mechanical Musical Instrument Collection
By Tom Hutchinson

Hi MMD -- Due to advanced age and accompanying health issues I have
decided to sell the majority of my collection of mechanical music
instruments.  All listed instruments play; some are recent restorations
and some are older.  Most instruments have been regularly tuned and
maintained by Bob Stout.

John Wrasse will soon be traveling through the Midwest on a trip to
the East Coast.  John is one of the premier instrument movers.  All
instruments but the Monarch are at ground level with no steps.
All offers considered.  Photos can be emailed upon request.

1. 1925 Reproduco organ/piano, older restoration.  Comes with five
Capitol NOS rolls and two OS rolls.  $2000

pipe organ that is Minified and coupled with a 1980 Marantz Superscan,
plus WinAmp 3 Pianocorder.  The Pianocorder is tied into the MIDI
system so the two instruments can play together.  The Pianocorder
library contains 4100 titles, with an additional 10,000 songs on the
controlling computer.

There is a video of this pipe organ and Pianocorder on YouTube at
"A Marriage of Two Old Organs" 

An article in the AMICA Bulletin Sept/Oct 2011 shows the restoration
of this pipe organ.  It was restored by Bill Klinger and the console
and glockenspiel was restored by Bob Stout.

The sale of this pipe organ and Pianocorder includes six ranks and
over 450 pipes, the MIDI system, controlling computer, shutter system,
organ blower and the suction box for the roll player, plus all pipes.
Interested buyers should consider contacting a professional mover who
has had experience moving organs.  This organ is at ground level with
no steps.  $50,000.
