Building 89-key Gavioli Organ
By Bill Nunn
I purchased a large Gavioli facade last year. The organ was originally
used with a roller coaster in Paris in 1905 and later imported by
Bernie and was used on a Whip ride at Revere Beach. The organ was
destroyed when it became derelict but luckily someone saved the facade.
I am now ready to start replicating the organ to go behind this
great facade. The organ will be 89-key #4 scale as per the original.
I am exploring all possibilities in having this made. I will be
talking to both U.S. and European organ experts. I am looking for any
advice and also anyone who may be interested in doing a similar project
where we would share some expenses. It is always cheaper to buy two
I am also looking for any original parts that could be used and any
89-key #4 scale music.
