Currently looking for an electric organ, if someone on here has one they want to shift.

I'm reliably informed my organ is pretty large, but it's not for sale unfortunately...

I'm too attached to mine to part with it.

Just to let you know that I bought a Technics organ on Ebay today, seller will deliver it to me tomorrow. Thanks for the interest shown by all you big organ fans out there.

Laugh.

Post by aryan57 » Tue Sep 01, 2009 12:32 pm

The reaction was as expected, we all need a good laugh from time to time, thats why I chose the heading Big Organ. Seller just delivered it and it's very big and very heavy. Today of all days, South West Highways took the opportunity to remove the road surface and block access which made life very interesting. Currently, it's lying on its back( Ooer Mrs) on the driveway while it tips down with rain. I need to raise it up (Ooer Mrs), tie some webbing around it and drop it down over 5 feet using the car as a brake. Rover 800's certainly have many uses. Best to all.

Are you talking about an old fashioned electric organ, aryan? I didn't know Technics made such a thing. It must be a good 'un, then.

How much did you pay for it, if you don't mind my nosey?

I love all that gear. My wife had a belting old Yamaha organ, which she sold just after we got wed, because we 'didn't have room for it.' Wish we'd kept hold of it, I really do.

I also used to have a fantastic 1981-ish analogue synth, a Casio. Also one of Casio's very first 'sampling' synths. Both now sadly nicked.

Organ.

Post by aryan57 » Mon Sep 07, 2009 11:18 am

Yes. As you describe it, its a big old fashioned thing that people find they cant get rid off when they want to shift it, as it does not break down for transport, as many modern instruments do. Weight is around 100 kgs, its a Technics G7 bought from Ebay for £64 and the seller delivered for a fee, with hardly a mark on the case. It plays beautifully, only fault is a F sharp key on the bottom manual needs to have a contact cleaned. My wife had to sell her treasured piano to get the money to get married (What! You thought I payed for it? LOL) She now has after many years a new digital piano.

If you fancy one, they can be found on Ebay for under £50-100 for a top of the range organ that someone once payed a good five to ten thousand for, and fully working too. Great if you like to make your own music and for passing the time in the winter evenings. Do lots of research before handing over the green stuff, as selling them again can be difficult.
