CLASSIFIED DETAILS
Mid 1960s allen (analog) 3 manual theatre organ console. No speakers. This is an excellent candidate for a Hauptwerk conversion, with multiple key contacts thru-out. Pedalboard and bench included. Console is offered free. Pickup appx 2 miles off I-75, north of Atlanta, GA.

The organ console is sitting on the main floor of the house, with one step down to a concrete paved carport and concrete driveway. It's an easy load out with an organ dolly, although it's heavy and would need several
guys to get it onto your trailer. I can possibly furnish a couple of guys here

Seller gave this further info:

With the console in an upright position, it will go thru a 32 inch doorway, turning one cheek through at a time. It can also be turned through a doorway on it's side on a mover's dollie, such as you can get at Menards. In either case, the door has to be taken off its hinges to gain the full opening of the doorway.

This is a big brother to my 2 manual Allen I recently converted. After a number of conversations with a friend who is an electrical engineer with 35 years experience designing switches, and also because of the way the Allen keyboards were wired, I chose to use 2 contacts per key and to use 14 volts to do the keying. Midi Boutique was able to supply the midi equipment for me to use that 14 volts. I find it works like a charm! The most time-consuming part of this conversion would be identifying each wire going to each key. It just takes patience. This will be a wonderful Hauptwerk instrument!

Still available. Ideal for a H/W conversion.
