For Sale Karn Reed Organ

D.W. Karn & Co. Parlour Reed Organ, with Mouse Proof Pedals
Style 7B model, number 20993, made in Woodstock, Canada c.1890
Dimensions are as follows:
Height fully assembled: 201 cm (79 in.)
Height with decorative top removed: 126 cm (49.5 in.)
Width: 124.5 cm (49 in.)  Depth: 61 cm (24 in.)

I need to find a home for this handsome example of an American Parlour Reed Organ. Its been in my life since I bought it in c.1965 from the original owner's daughter - a Victorian photographer.

It is in full working order. All 16 stops are still working and the great organ and knee swells are fully functioning. The pedal's springs still spring and the bellows have plenty of puff and finally the "mouse proof pedals" still proudly display in cast metal their anti-vermin guarantee - always a talking point. Two original tools for removing reeds are included.

Several of the Black keys are heavily worn by the original owner's hand but it is still perfectly playable. One of the candle stands needs a simple minor repair it is currently detached from its post. Some re-varnishing touching up would benefit it but it is relatively minor and as would be expected for an instrument of such an age, but overall the case is very presentable. No doubt full restoration would improve it but unlike many examples being offered this one works as it stand now and sound sweet to the ear.

The stops from left to right are as follows:

Bass coupler
Diapason 8 ft
Piano 8 ft
Viola 4 ft
Viola D'Amour 4 ft
Sub Bass 16 ft
Diapason Forte
Vox Jubilante
Viola Forte
Cremona 16 ft
Violincello 16 ft
Vox Angelica 8 ft
Flute 4 ft
Dolce 8 ft
Principal 8 ft
Treble Coupler

The elaborately decorated upper part with its sheet music holder is easily completely removable making transportation more straightforward.

I am located in South East London in SE24

GONE - Free to Good Home Two Manual and Pedal Reed Organ

 'UNIVERSITY ORGAN'. Manufacturer possibly Albert Wagstaff or A.J. Spencer
(see http://tardis.dl.ac.uk/FreeReed/organ_book/node14.html for the history)
with mains-powered exhauster, perhaps dating from the 1930s.



Diapason 8
(Dulciana 8') name-plate missing

(oboe 8') name-plate missing
Voix Celeste 8'
Salicional 8'
Vox humana

This instrument plays (and the exhauster functions) but clearly suffers from many years' neglect in a long-deserted church in Cardiff.
I can send half a dozen more photos to enquirers and a sound file of the instrument being played.
The building in the which the instrument sits is to be bulldozed in mid-April or possibly earlier.


Acquirer collects please! The organ is in a gallery and may have to be partially dismantled to get it down the stairs.
