Summer 2013 update:

I'm possibly looking for another complete PLAYING Reuter organ, if you know of one that needs a home let me know.




The final recording on the Reuter 822 as it was in place in December 2011.

A recording for Christmas, 2011, played by Walt Strony via a MIDI file created many years ago!

November 23, 2011 update:

GREAT news, the Austin 500 console is now functional for the most part! Still a lot of wiring to be done on pistons, but 8 of the pistons now work (one of the working thumb pistons is now a general cancel for the time being until the "cancel's" are wired in)

The console has been quasi-functional in a limited capacity for the past month or so, however with no settable pistons it was not really useable when one is dealing with 154 drawknobs and no general cancel either!


However, as of November 22 there are presently 7 working thumb pistons!!!!! There are another 24 thumb pistons yet to get wired in, plus the cheek tablets for tremolos & unison off tablets.

I will be doing some recording on Thanksgiving, so will post when I have a first recording utilizing the new system.

A few bugs yet to work out. Presently only 5 divisions are usable, as a bug in the system is not allowing me to program the other 11 divisions just yet, but that should be remedied soon.



November 4, 2011 update

The new Syndyne 8400 system is installed..it is a "beta test" of a brand new operating system. Working thru issues now but the organ SHOULD be going VERy soon!


Awaiting just the chimes, pistons & necessary Choir - Choir/Echo - Echo pistons to all get working!


September 29, 2011 update:



Progress continues on the Austin 500 console restoration! Getting close!


June 15, 2011 update:

Trevor continues restoration of the Austin 500. Over the weekend I obtained a Barton Glockenspiel for eventual installation on the Reuter opus 822.



June 9, 2011 update:

Work has started on installing the Austin opus 500 console on the Reuter 822.

Trevor has been busily refinishing the Austin 500 over the past weeks, getting it ready to put together in the house.

The frame is up in the house now as seen in the photographs below. It will fit just fine, BUT the piano is now sort of squeezed into the room, but at least it does all fit!







New rug for under the "new" 1914 console not sized quite correct so will be replacing this rug eventually with another, but it will work for now!




Trevor out in the garage working on the various pieces of the Austin 500 console preparing it for its move to the house!




The old Syndyne boards are now being removed for NEW Syndyne boards for the new control system!




A last look from upstairs down on the Holtkamp 2 manual in the living room!




This console served VERY WELL for many years, but time to move on to bigger and better!











On FACEBOOK as well, email me to get connected!.
