Aeolian Orchestrelle Style V to Repair or Sell
By Gene Teslovic

I recently purchased an Aeolian Orchestrelle style V.  At delivery,
I discovered that the instrument would not play at all, either
by hand or by roll.  Before I bought it, I heard it playing with
a roll so I am assuming in shipment, something happened.

Now I am either looking for someone to repair/restore it for me
or someone to buy it as is, in need of repair.  My local organ
technician said that all the interior parts seem to be there in
original, unrestored, untampered-with condition.  The case is in
very nice, original condition measuring 75 inches wide, 65 inches
tall and 30 inches deep.  It plays 58-note Aeolian rolls.

Please contact me if you have an interest in restoring or purchasing
the Orchestrelle, which is now in Portsmouth, Virginia.
