Wurlitzer Style BX & "Theatre Organ Home Page"
By Paul West

Hi Charles!  A good place to start looking for information about
your organ is the web site

 [ "The Theatre Organ Home Page" is also presented without frames
 [ at  -- Robbie

The web site includes a database of theatre organ installations.
From this database, we can identify your organ as Wurlitzer opus 1476,
originally installed at the Pythian Theatre of Logan, Ohio, in 1926.

It is a Style BX, which is the 2-chamber version of Wurlitzer's Style
B.  The Style B has 2 manuals and 4 ranks: flute, salicional, trumpet,
and vox humana.  It was Wurlitzer's most popular theatre organ model,
some 225 of them having been built.

The web site also has an email list which you can subscribe to, where
you can ask about the value of your organ, and free classified ads
where you can offer the instrument for sale.  I expect that it could
be sold for $2500-$5000 if you can wait a year or more to find a buyer.

Best wishes,
Paul West
