    It's not a piano and I don't know a whole lot about organs, but this one looks like it would be a blast to play! I bet I could spend an entire day fooling around on it.

    Very cool, looks like one of the mighty wurlitzer organs 8)

    I've seen other organs that have four or five manuals, but they confound me. Why are they needed? Given most organ repertoire is written for the great, swell and pedal.

    I’m wondering about those things on the bottom. Aren’t there supposed to be pedals? How do you make the really low and loud bass notes? Also, I’m not a large person—I think I’d need an elevator on the bench that could raise me up if I need to play the keys (manual) on top. Or maybe arm extensions.... :lol:

    Nope those are not the pedals, they are not visible on this picture. They are stops (i.e. registration pre-sets) and swell pedals. Gadgets you only get on romantic and modern organs, not on baroque organs.
