My Carpenter Reed Organ

I bought this antique, working, reed organ at Barton's Memory Lane today. It will be delivered once Catherine and I figure out how to get it here. It is very heavy. I'll be able to play again! Amy found a woman who wants to give away an upright piano. If I can get that delivered, my music room will be nearly complete. Catherine's husband took the first photo.

The Carpenter Organ Company was in Brattleboro in the 1800s. It was bought by the Estey Organ Company, the world's largest manufacturer of reed organs at that time, which was also in Brattleboro. That is about all I know about either company at this time.

When clicked, these photos will open, full size, in a new window.

  1. That thing looks loud, but very nice.

  2. Good luck with getting it moved. It looks very big and heavy.

  3. These are nice photographs. I bought my wife a new piano a long time ago and she played it several times. It has been out of tune for about 25 years and has become a place to park countless photos. I would give it away but she might yell a few times. LOL

  4. good luck in moving it..........and a pretty store.

  5. Hello,
    I currently own a 1895 estey reed organ that I am trying to price to sell. Any ideas on where I can hopefully get a good price worth so I can sell it?? Thanks for your help.


  6. Can you tell me how much you paid for it? I have one that is very similar, although not in quite as good condition. Wonder how much it goes for.

  8. My aunt has a Carpenter Reed Organ that needs to be sold. If anyone can tell me about how much it would sell for, please contact me at It is in fairly good condition. Your organ is identical to my aunt's.
