Haven't heard of it some time now! This organ is what you may call
"the ideological father" of the 66-key organ we own for about 15 years
now. (This may be strange to some people, as they have about nearly
nothing in common, but that's another story.)
Some of the books for "De Hagenaar" were 'translated' to the 66-gamma.
This is still a big part of the repertoire we now have for it.
Quite some memories coming up. Therefore: Any knowledge about its
