Periodically, I have an inventory of used organ pipes, used organ parts, reed organs (pump organs), organ sheet music, and books about organs and other music instruments. Now and then an occasional wind-up phonograph will appear for sale as well. Feel free to take look around and see what interests you. Follow the links on each item when you're ready to purchase. Fill out my contact form if you have any questions or would like more information about anything you see for sale.
Our inventory is always changing. Please check back often. Local pickup in Akron Ohio preferred. Some items can be packed and shipped for actual shipping cost plus a modest fee for packing and crating.
The following list contains phonographs that we have for sale in our inventory. These are mostly of the floor-model Victor Victrola style, however, from time to time, we do have Edison cylinder phonographs and Edison Diamond Disc phonographs available. Scroll down to see the phonographs for sale. Use the contact form to let me know if you're interested. Thanks for looking.
The VV-405 was one of three deluxe flat-top console models that were introduced in late 1923. These premium machines featured gold plated hardware, a four-spring motor, and elegantly contrasting veneers and stains. The 405 was the most popular of the three, and its basic Spanish Renaissance design theme was used on the popular Orthophonic Granada (VV-4-4) when it was introduced in late 1925. Ornate round turned legs, along with a lateral stiffening "bar" between the legs are the key elements of this machine's design theme. A VV-405S series was soon made available, which allowed the user (or dealer) to install a radio in the area that was intended for record storage. This option allowed both sides of the top to open (the top on "regular" 405's only opened on the right hand side), and added $15.00 to the cost. Except for this difference, all VV-405's have identical features. The 405 remained in the Victor catalog through the first half of 1925, but this machine was manufactured only during 1923 and 1924. The 405 was only available in walnut.

The VI was a slight upgrade from the base VV-IV model, offering a 2-spring motor and slightly larger case. Production was started in October of 1911, and discontinued in 1925. Early models were available only in oak, After 1917, both oak and mahogany versions were produced. During the first few years of production, the VI came with a 10-inch turntable, which was upgraded to the full 12-inch size after 1913. Final production versions as shown on the right have a slightly larger cabinet.
Plays great, sounds great

The reed organ or pump organ was a staple of many homes in the middle 19th century. Often found in Victorian parlors, churches, and concert halls, these instruments are characterized by their artistic cabinetry, craftsmanship, and presence. Their unique sound, and working the pedals to move air to create the music, add to the unique beauty of the reed organ. Unless otherwise noted, each instrument is in good playing condition and of the best quality. Follow the links below to see more of each instrument.
