Brandon.. does it have a full pedal board? If you are going to play pro you might want a full pedalboard.. Altho it might not matter that much. Why are the photos of the organs different colors? Is that the same organ? Pm me with a price would you?

can you share the stop list? Can it be fixed if those tubes go out?

here's a cool link.

just concerned for you.

Brandon are you in the neck of the woods of Ithaca where the Hindman family was killed? I know some people who knew them. Terrible tragedy.

Apple-


That website is quite fascinating! Yes the Bone Doctors Conn 640 is similar to mine. It does have 25 pedals. I have had both 25 and 32 pedal organs in the past. I know 25 is kinda limited.

but from my standpoint, the Curved concave pedal boards are quite a pain for me to use. I definitely prefer straight flat pedalboards. The AGO standards seem too awkward.

I guess I am weird! I do have the bedient pipe organ I get to practice on each week still



His organ is actually a lower end model than mine is. Mine has percussion effects and other doo-dads that his lacks.

The stop list seems to be similar though.

As for the pictures, Apple...

They are the exact same organs! Just different stores, and very different lightings.


The Larger left picture is a much better accurate idea for the actual color.
