What to do when no one wants you anymore?

Recommended Posts

What to do when no one wants you anymore? When you're an old, beaten down and no longer working church organ, that is. 

The answer? Make a new friend or two and sing a different tune!

Check out my recently acquired hifi stereo tube amplifier. It was made from part of the electronic innards of a non-functioning Baldwin theatre/church organ. (I believe, specifically, a Model 45.) The tech I purchased it from modified the circuitry a bit so that now it plays in full, glorious and spacious stereo, not (also full and glorious, if a bit less spacious) mono as it was originally constructed. 

I've also attached a (generic/found online) pic of what one of the organs looked like.

Kinda cool that this came from that, huh?

Nice work !

If only we could revamp  our bodies so that they played a different tune that would be amazing 😁

Yea that's pretty sweet. I play the guitar mainly, piano for songwriting, and I played the bass for a long time but had to quit due to sudden neurological pain in my right hand. My mom has been playing piano all her life so we have an upright and a keyboard but no organ.
