Renatus Chamber Organ with two ranks of wooden pipes: 

Stopped Diapason at 8', giving 4' flute and 2&2/3 Nazard by extension;

Principal at 4', giving a 2'  Fifteenth by extension.


This organ has a digitally controlled action with a key 
touch that has very much the 'right' feel to it.  Digital control means that it is possible to go from A=440 to A=415 at the touch of a switch.  
The entire pipework slides out of the case for tuning. Tuning is by stoppers (8') and tin 'lapels' (4').

The instrument has been used for concerts both in Cirencester Parish Church and in Tewkesbury Abbey. 

Asking price: £7,500. Available now.

I am happy to deliver to most of the U.K. for a reasonable charge, but please make your own transport arrangements if you are buying from the rest of Europe or abroad. 01373 831498. or email me on: mailto:peterbarnes850@btinternet.com
