Want to Sell: Baldwin Model 5a Organ

Category: Electronic Organs and Parts

DESCRIPTION This is a Baldwin Model 5a Organ from the late 1940's/early 1950's and would be great for a home or church organ. I've had it for a few months and have played it quite a bit, it has wonderful touch and tone. I acquired it from a church here in town and I am only the second person to own it, so it's been taken GREAT care of. It runs on old radio tubes and all of the original labels for tubes are on the boxes so there should be no problem trying to figure out what tube to buy if one goes out. The most expensive tube in the organ (the rectifier tube) only cost me $20 and it didn't even have to be replaced, I thought it did but as it turns out, the old one just needed to be taken out and blown off. Me and my grandpa (a trained electrician) have replaced the main power cord. At some point the power cord from the pedal board to the main outlet inside the organ was replaced with it's own transformer. We also replaced the cord that goes from this transformer to the main power cord. Everything on it works. The only thing that doesn't come with it is the tone cabinet. It has the original matching bench and key to lock the manual chest. It truly is a beautiful organ! SPECIFICATIONS The Organ has two manuals and a pedal board, each of which have wonderful stops and volume pedals for both the Great and Swell manuals! Also it has stops for an optional string/bell manual, those stops include harp, celesta, etc. It was a transition from a theatre organ to a church organ so it has a variety of great horns, a few stringed instruments such as a Violin Diapason. It has Couplers for every combinations of the three keyboards and on top of that has TREMOLO SETTINGS! Yes! It has Mild, Half, and Full Tremolo stops for the whole organ giving you the option of playing pieces written for a Hammond! It also offers a Swell and Great "Expression" switch, and Speaker option switch between Main, Echo and both. If you have any other questions, feel free to email me or text/call after 4 PM at 843-610-5591 I'm taking $700 or best offer I do have other pictures and I'm glad to take specific ones for you!
