I have a Gulbransen organ model 1921. It has not been played in several years. Looks like new. But when I press some keys they do not produce a steady sound, sounds like may be it has contacts that are dirty. Does anyone know if this is a common problem and a possible cost to have repaired??? Also would like to sell after it is repaired, what value is it in good working condition?? What value is it as it is??

Thanks, Bill

I don't think it is worth much of anything as the market has completely bottemed out of the small electronic organ market. Perhaps the contacts need some cleaning; however, it has been my experience that nobody really wants those instruments anymore. I have already told the story that I could not get anyone to buy a Hammnond C3 with leslie a few years ago. We ended up giving it to an orphanage in Juarez. Maybe, if you are lucky, you could get a couple of hundred dollars for it.
