Database Manager on May 23, 2013:

Identified through online information from Bill Habermann. -- I am a retired organist (played 45 yrs.) I bought the organ when the church needed the storage room for a classroom. It is now in Tacoma , WA. I have enjoyed having this organ in my home in St. Paul ... a joy to practice at home and then go to my church to play services. When I moved to WA State I took the organ along and set it up in my detached/heated garage. I did not bring the swell chamber walls - so the entire organ is unenclosed. The Swell Pedal does not function but the Crescendo Pedal does. There is one toe stud for Grt to Ped / Reversable. The 16' Pedal has only the Bourdon with a wind limiter that causes it to be the Lieblich Gedackt when the 16' Bourdon tap is off. I have been wanting to sell the organ for around $1000.00 (as is) - but seems I can't hardly give it away . Would love to see it restored and used in a small church or in a home.
