    Had a great time Monday picking up my new to me Aeolian-Hammond BA Player Organ!

    This one seems to be #35 out of 208 manufactured based upon my research.

    Coming from a pipe organ and player mechanism technician in Baltimore, it came with the matching bench, two matching C-20 Tone Cabinets, 100+ recut rolls, 50+ original rolls, a Hammond Solovox Model J, and a 21 chime 6' tall Deagan Cathedral Chime unit. I also scored a nice 1930's Sparton 301 floor radio with it.

    Looking forward to restoring this alongside my 1939 Hammond Novachord, the first mass produced polyphonic Synthesizer.
