Originally built in 1928 for the Fox Studios, Los Angeles, California
Wurlitzer "Style Sp 3m" - with static reservoir and chromatic chests
Factory date: October 12, 1928
Fox sold the organ to a private collector in 1994 following the Northridge earthquake, and it was put into storage awaiting restoration and a new home. In 2014, the organ was purchased by Nathan Barr, the award-winning film and television composer, who is having the organ restored by Ken Crome of the Crome Organ Company.
