    Baldwin Organ

    This Baldwin Organ was donated to my business and we are now selling the company but want to sell this organ. Can anyone tell me what model it is and what they think it is worth so I can post it on ebay or CraigsList? Thanks!

    It's a Baldwin model HT2R from the late 1960's. Unfortunately, no longer worth anything.

    It can't hurt to try Craigslist. Has the organ been played while you've had it and is everything in reasonable good working order? Your location if within easy reach of a large audience (for moving the instrument -- distance moves are just too expensive these days) and the possibility of a true Baldwin fan in the area might make for a sale in the $100 - 150 range.

    This one's also a favorite for Miditzer conversion, isn't it? -I.e., a well-constructed horseshoe/theater-style console that looks the part. So again, perhaps not completely worthless; someone might be willing to give you $100 for it, with that end in mind. You just have to find the right buyer who's looking to do a MIDI conversion.

    In working order it's a nice sounding old theatre spinet, but I think might is the operative word here when talking about value. Worth a try, though.
    It's not what you play. It's not how you play. It's the fact that you're playing that counts.

    Andy, you might have the CT models in mind which are spinets with 13 pedals. The HT model was a two manual 61 note full console with some having a full 32 note pedalboard. Early predecessor of the Cinemas. In its day this was state of the art and top of the line. I enjoy my CT but would really like to find an HT someday.

    Sorry, slip of the typing finger. Meant to say console! I liked the HT2 but preferred the PR200 - not that there were many over here to play. (I have a feeling that Baldwin had just the one and kept moving it around! )
