From time to time, the Chapter is notified about instruments which come on the market in the local community. Those organs, both electronic and pipe, etc., will be listed here as information is available. The Chapter makes no warranty as to the condition of the instrument, and is not qualified to appraise any instruments for their potential market value. If one of these instruments are of interest to you, we encourage to make contact with the posted owners to determine further your interest in acquiring an organ for your home, church, or school.
We also accept listings from members who have other instruments for sale. Please contact the member directly if you are interested in the instrument.

Wurlitzer Spinet Piano with bench
The Wurlitzer family were German instrument makers dating back to the 17th century with Hans Andreas Wurlitzer, a violin maker. By the 1900s Wurlitzer had factories in DeKalb, Illinois (grand pianos) and North Tonawanda, NY (upright pianos). In 1985 Wurlitzer purchased the Chickering name and all the assets of the Aeolian Corp. Memphis, TN factory when Aeolian went out of business. In 1995 Baldwin purchased Wurlitzer and Chickering. In 2001, the Baldwin, Chickering and Wurlitzer names were purchased by the Gibson musical instrument company. Wurlitzer upright pianos were then discontinued in 2003, essentially replaced by the Ellington, and then Hamilton line (made in China) in 2004.

Steinway piano. (It’s the 1891 Steinway-fully rebuilt.)
This historic instrument was rebuilt in 2015-2016. Unlike many others this complete rebuild comes with all new action parts: hammers, whippens, back action,new strings, bridge caps, pinblock, and action felt. It has a custom soundboard designed by top re-builder Nick Gravagne, personally signed and with authentication stamp. Cabinet completely refinished in original ebony satin. All work on the piano done by former Steinway employee. It retains the original three-bridge design and the original ivories which are in excellent condition. Ivory inspection report allows for legal sale across state lines. Comes with custom made padded nylon cover, duet bench, adjustable artist bench and humidity control system. The delicate, responsive touch makes for subtle expressiveness across the range. The resonant bass is especially well-suited for music of the Romantic period. It has been lovingly and carefully maintained by top-notch RPTs. Downsizing won’t permit me to have two Steinways at home.
