New Free to Good Home Mason & Hamlin Reed Organ  
 
Mason and Hamlin small flat top organ, style 21. Free to anyone who will restore it.
The organ is obviously in need of restoration but it did play.
The action has now been lifted out but has not been messed with or dismantled further.
This video on YouTube demonstrates the organ’s lack of wind but does show that it is capable of playing.

No Longer Available Apollo 2MP Reed Organ  
 

Rushworth & Dreaper Apollo no. 1332 ca.1936. Instrument has integral Mecvent blower, balanced swell pedal.

In playing order but does need restoration work to Swell suction regulator, key action and pedalboard.
Is in regular use for practice and enjoyment but work commitments mean I don't have time to commit to restoring it.
Blower motor has been rewound and new run capacitor fitted.
This is potentially a really nice example evoking a classic English cathedral organ.

Swell: Bourdon 16, Gamba 8, Flute 4, Oboe 8, Tremulant

Couplers: Swell Octave, Swell to Great, Swell to Pedal, Great to Pedal

Balanced swell pedal, two combination levers each to Swell and Great. 



Ten sets of reeds.

Forte, Trumpet, Flute Dolce, Flute, Celeste, Clarone, Vox Angelet, Melodia, Treble Coupler.

Just need to attach straps from the back of the organ with tacks/ staples.
There is a stool as well.
