Wurlitzer Needs A Good Home and TLC
My grandfather would like to see his Wurlitzer 4300 go to a good home. It is in need of some care - I know that it has not been played in quite a few years and the last time it was played it was in need of servicing. (My grandmother was the one to play it and tried to teach my one uncle but he didn't have the talent for it and she passed away in 2006). The body of it is in excellent condition and was always covered in plastic when it was not in use. I would come with the matching bench (which is LOADED with music).
If anyone needs more information or is interested please contact me. We understand that there really isn't a market for these organs anymore and only enthusiasts or hobbyists would be interested. We just want it to go to a good home as it really deserves so much better than to be broken down and thrown away one day. That's quite heartbreaking to think about. We live just outside of Philadelphia, Pennsylvania.
Re: Wurlitzer Needs A Good Home and TLC
Thanks for a generous heart. In previous posts I have learned from a friend in south Jersey that there is a New Jersey theater organ association and he has suggested when other folks have had organs to donate that they advertise through that association. Craigslist maintains a free category that is regularly scanned by folks looking to adopt old organs. In my vicinity here in Florida, our local newspaper has a free ad program for any item sold under $100 (including free) so you might check with your newspaper as well.
Unfortunately the downside to posting here on the forum is that most of us are scattered around the country and the cost of transportation is too high. But we thank you for coming to visit with us and appreciate your offer very much. We hope you'll find our advice helpful and the beloved organ will get new life in a loving home.
