    Hammond Aurora Century, model XL-172

    This is the bells and whistles Aurora Century that came out in 2000. Anybody know anything about it? What do you think it is worth?

    Probably what any 11 year old mid-to-top-end Orla is worth. The only thing Hammond about it is the name badge. Nice organ in its day and good value as an Orla, I wonder how much extra the H badge made it, though.
    It's not what you play. It's not how you play. It's the fact that you're playing that counts.

    Retired Organs: Lots! Including Hammond T402, T500 x 2, X5. Conn Martinique and 652. Gulbransen 2012 Pacemaker. Kimball something-or-other.

    Current owner paid $11,950 for it in 2002! I figure $500-600 tops would even be generous.

    Maybe not so bad, it's not a Hammond, it's an Orla, and there is support for older organs from them. There are a heck of a lot of that generation of Orlas still going strong in the UK.

    After 2 months of listing on CL at "make offer", I have had ZERO inquiries here in the St. Louis area! Not a single peep...

    Thank goodness it's on a consignment sale with my customer - they still have it in a storage unit and I have $0 in it until/unless it finally sells.
