Pipe Organs For Sale

Because of the simplicity and durability of mechanical action organs, they often outlast the buildings or congregations for which they were originally made. It is not unusual for a well-built old organ to be relocated and repurposed to fit the musical needs and budget of a new owner. We tune and service a large number of instruments which are now in their second, third, or fourth homes. Some of these were relocated over a century ago, others within the past decade.

Depending upon the particular circumstances, an instrument can often be reconfigured to fit into a slightly different space. The final cost of an organ relocation project will ultimately depend upon the amount of restoration or remodeling required. Usually, it is possible to acquire and repurpose an older organ for about one-third to one-half the cost of an equivalent new instrument.

The listings below represent instruments which are available for purchase and restoration. Most are owned by us and stored in our facilities. A few are listed at the request of the current owner. Descriptions, stop lists and, in most cases, photos are available by clicking on each listing.
