I have done this at church so many times. One time a congregant had purchased a very expensive electronic organ and donated it to our church. We were downsizing and also wanted to purchase a smaller more versatile keyboard. I found the ad that our church put out for the organ the other day while going through old files.
This Lowrey Festival Electronic organ was bought by a congregant for our church in 2000. We are moving and would like to sell this organ. The retail value was $22,000 in 2002 per the person who purchased it.
I will list what it has:
Lower: Brass, vocal, strings, piano, Flute 8, organ, pipe organ
Upper Vocal, reed, string 1 & 2, 4 flute buttons, jazz organ, pipe organ
Orchestral solo piano, banjo, guitar, accordion, horn, vibes, electric piano, harpsichord, hawaiian, orch strings, trombone, marimba
Orchestral solo control Lower, upper, chorus, dynamic keying, portamento, solo upper
Bells, country guitar, trumpet, jazz flute, chimes, violin, sax, clarinet
Rhythm plus orchestration Big band, country, broadway, march, soft and easy, rock n' Roll, Bossa nova, waltz, fox trot, gospel, hawaiian, swing march, ballad, contempo, salsa, polka
For a while there was no response. Then a miracle happened. A church in Springfield, Missouri was looking for an organ just like ours. It so happened that I was going to Springfield the next week to be with my children for Thanksgiving. I had a large jeep and the organ fit perfectly. I brought it to Springfield, received the sale money and delivered the organ. The universe had provided.
I have found that if we give life a chance and try not to panic and think the world is coming to an end that things work out.
