Just listed the pipes separately for those interested in just the pipes. This organ was removed out of the Blacksburg First United Methodist Church in Blacksburg, Va. It was in their old sanctuary and they needed the space so the organ had to go. It was in working condition when it was removed.
We were told that it needed to be tuned at the time was the only thing. There are hundreds of pipes with this organ.
They are both aluminum and wooden. There was a custom made cabinets for this organ made out of Oak. There are no identifiable markings as to the maker of this organ.They stated to their best guess. From the outside, I know that the 2 sets of pipes that sat on the floor at the right side of the stage are #1-12 and #13-32 of the Pedal 16' Flute. #1-25 are capped zink, painted alum. #26-32 are Rohr (chimney) gedeckts (stopped flutes) made of spotted metal - a lead/tin alloy. The name that is engraved on the pipe or console tabs may vary. Inside that Swell box, I see what appears to be a reed stop. That is the cone-shaped group of pipes with a tuning wire in the boot. It may be a small trumpet or oboe-type voice. I also see a rank of wooden open flute with a flat metal tuning cover 61? , a stoppered wooden flute 61? , and 2 ranks of cylindrical pipes that are probably belong to a string family 49/61/73? The shiny pipes behind the grill at the left side are members of a Principal/Octave pipe family. What they are, how many are there total, or where they had their function I cannot tell without seeing the chest layout. I'm guessing this was most likely a 6-7 rank unified pipe organ, meaning, pipes are shared within a division, and/or between divisions. A rank is the set of similar pipes from bottom to top... Would be 61 for the manuals, or 73, or 85, with each extra 12 pipes added for sharing. The organ has been moved from the trailer and is being stored in a garage. I do have more pictures of the organ as it sits in storage if you are interested. Or if you need more, will be more than happy to take more. Here is what I can tell you about the organ. We are not organ movers or organ removal specialists.
It took 1 day to get the entire organ out of the church. The wires were cut from the actual console of the organ to each of the holders for the pipes. These will need to be all rewired by a professional organ installer if you are wanting to use it again. We were unable to remove the blower motor (a new one will be needed). The blower motor was put in a closet in the basement of the church and unfortunately due to size of the motor it could not be removed from the closet it was in.
The custom cabinet was cut in half when we took it apart and the leg on the one cabinet had to be cut to be able to transport it. It can be reassembled with bracing and minimal cosmetic work. Please look at all the pictures of the organ they way it sat on the stage of the church. PLEASE ask questions and I will be happy to answer the best of my ability. Also, we are open to REASONABLE offers on this organ.If you are interested in it, please make an offer, the worse we will do is come back with a counter offer. We do not want to see it go to waste. Help is strongly suggested to bring as well as a lower trailer to haul it. The organ console itself is the heaviest part and it is quite heavy.
