Recordings of 89-key VB Gavioli Organs
By Douglas Bush

Dear all,  In MMD 050714 Roger Wiegand sought recordings of unaltered
89-key VB Gavioli organs.  This will be a fruitless search, as Gavioli
did not build organs playing the VB scale.  The many Gavioli organs to
be found playing this scale are all later conversions, generally done
after the heyday of the fairground organ to eliminate the need for two
different arrangements to be made and thus maximizing profits for the
music suppliers.
