Marcin Majak and Jakub Wszołek, organ and harmonium restorers from Gdansk in Poland delivered our new folding reed organ last week. We tried it out in the parking lot of Vilnius University and later brought it to the St. John's church to play a bit while the guys worked on A.J. Spencer's University Organ pedal reed organ. Ausra and I like to thank Dagmar Hamberger from Germany for this precious gift and to our friends for a beautiful restoration and masterful tuning. Today I'd like to share with you first sounds of this amazing portable instrument which Ausra and I will call "Henrietta". It has two rows of reeds - an always on 8' stop, and 4' Viola (bass) and 4' Flöte (discant) and a Forte switch. As you can see it has plenty of versatility, sound and weight for its size (25 kg) Hope you will enjoy it!
