Wicks Opus 1231. 2/8
Price: $6500 *
Originally built for the Knox Funeral Home in Moline, IL in 1934, this intact instrument was removed by Wicks in 2014 prior to the buildings demolition in a state project to widen a roadway.
It has been reassembled in our shop, and is playable for those interested to come see and hear from the original 1934 Wicks relays (which are still working). The original mainline from the console to the relay had been cut by the funeral home several years ago, and has been replaced with a temp line to make it playable. The combination action (with double touch pistons), has not been made functional.
Due to how this instrument is scaled and voiced, it would be the perfect candidate for a residential or small chapel/church installation. It really is a very fine instrument.
While available and priced As-Is, we do recommend refurbishing this instrument for continued reliability and safe operation. We can provide this instrument refurbished mechanically and electrically for $75, 720. Please feel free to call and inquire about the specifics involved.
*This Instrument is priced as-is with no additional provisions made and no warranties, expressed or implied. Does not include blower/rectifier, relays or original cabling.
