FS Free: Reproduco Funeral Organ in San Diego
By Jack M. Conway
Hi Group, A Reproduco organ is available for pick up in San Diego,
California. I have not seen the organ but as it was described over
the phone it sounds like a Reproduco funeral organ. It has a 2-manual
console that contains pipes, with the bass pipes hung on the back. It
has a separate large blower and vacuum unit.
The rolls are described as Capitol in boxes about 2 inches square and
about 15 inches long. This sounds like they would be Capitol Unified
Funeral Rolls which are mounted on piano roll like spools. They
usually have one tune but some have two. No title list is available.
The organ was playing when it was put into storage but that was many
years ago. It appears to be complete. It has been stored inside in
dry storage. It will most likely need normal restoration.
The owner would like to have it removed as soon as possible so that it
does not have to be hauled to the dump.
