The arrival of a giant!

Gaudin 112 toets dansorgel Alberic Godderis Draaiorgels
I am as happy as can be. This gigantic and unique 112-key Gaudin dance organ is of the largest in its category. And in this case you can say: "Big is beautiful". It was bought by a collector from it’s first owner (4th generation) and will be restored back to its full glory, retaining its exceptional originality. Throughout the years, the facade has undergone many "modernizations", which will make it a big challenge to restore it to its former glory. Despite the ravages of time and its many hours of operation, the instrument still plays a bit. You can hear what a wonderful instrument it is, and how good the hundreds of original organ books are that came with it. I am extremely grateful that both the owner and the buyer have found each other. And although the restoration is still on hold due to other projects, I can't wait to get started!
