Questions about an organ I found thrown away. Any help? - 05/23/10 10:28 PM

It is a Hammond Organ. The model number is 9212. I found it in someone's garbage and decided to take it. Everything works. Any idea of it's age or how much it's worth? Here are some pictures of it.

I can't see pictures from this PC. But I'm guessing this is one of those small home organs. A couple of manuals, 12 pedals in a straight line?

Then I can further guess how it got in the trash.

It was in the want ads for a bargain price of $1500. After several months it worked its way down through $500 to $100 to "ad fee" to "free to haul away."

No takers, so it went into the trash.

My advice, put it in the want ads for the bargain price of $1500! <grin>

Or play it yourself, it might be fun. That's what I would do.

It's 70's vintage, and as long as it works it sounds like you got something neat to play.

That being said, it's not a model that people are looking for. When you decide to get rid of it you'll probably have to give it away or pay to have it taken away.
