Rebuilding a Conn 652 Theatre Organ which I acquired from California, USA.

 

Three flights and one truck later I had my three pallets of Organ, two sets of pipes and a genuine Conn Leslie Cabinet delivered to Derby, England.

 

The power supply had to be adapted to allow the organ to play; which it did quite nicely for some time until it's untimely demise. Various micro-processors started failing and the old girl was having a nervous breakdown. Technology and innovation for the Conn Organs of this class were very advanced for the time... but too outdated to get genunie components to restore to its original state.
