Air Motor for Aeolean Reed Organ Needed and WTB: Complete Player Reed Organ and Convert Allen MOS-1 Organ to MIDI ?
By Carl Shannon
I received two calls tonight, which I want to pass on to the list. The first call was inquiring about the where-abouts of a part for an Aeolian Grand player reed organ. Seems that after he bought one from me, he got the fever, and purchased another one. Because I know that mine was complete, he apparently did not do his homework when he bought the second one... and now needs a rather vital part. He needs an **air motor**. The instrument is a pressure instrument.
Second question was asking for a lead on a player reed organ. This fellow would like to buy one all restored and ready to go. He stated that last year they purchased a Welte grand piano, and enjoy it so much, that they decided to buy a player organ this year! (BTW, I have a beautiful Wilcox and White Symphony that awaits restoration for $800.00. You can see it at my web page, http://www.epix.net/~cshannon)
And, thirdly, a plea for information. Has anyone successfully converted an Allen MOS-1 organ to MIDI? It is a second generation MOS, a 903-3 from 1984. Thanks for any information. Anyone can email me if their message is not of interest to the entire list.
