What is the value of a crown pump organ?

Although in its time Geo P. Bent and the "Crown" brand were one of the best known piano and organ brands in the country, the company has long since fallen into obscurity. A turn-of-the-last-century Crown pump organ is quite large and rather ornate, and it is not something to show up on the market often, particularly those bearing the Geo P. Bent name. That said, one working and in good cosmetic condition - intact and without any major damage beyond normal wear and tear - could be worth as much as $900-1000 on the right day to the right buyer (at least as of the time of this answer in November 2013). As antique analog instruments have gained some new interest in the modern market, it's possible that one closer to mint condition could go for more, but it may take some time to find the right buyer. The biggest hurdles would be finding a buyer truly interested in this unique machine who is either A) local and able to pick it up or B) willing to shell out the extra cash for freight.

Is rockburn a good electric guitar?

never heard of it, but a quick google search and you'll see for sure from reviews. BC Rich is my favorite, sure they look death metal for most but they are very unique and everyone (big rockstars) have played them.

May 2013

To the best of my knowledge, Rockburn is just a name slapped onto a Student model Chinese made guitar. Rockburn also sells and distribute drums and other musical instruments. Being a student type guitar the manufacturing process is as much quality as any and since most mfgs are using CNC machines to cut and produce them quickly. So the machining may be nice, but the question lies in the wood used, gluing electronics, hardware and paint. These would be the areas to skimp.

However, as a beginner/student why go pay for a guitar that you may never keep interest in or plain give up. If you accomplish the desire of playing, once your skills improve, go treat yourself to a step up. Many next step guitar companies have affordable lines to choose from. Like Fender, Dean, Gibson, Epiphone, Jay Turser and on and on.

Be realistic in you first guitar purchase and don't spent money unnecessarily.

Have confidence in you skills to constantly improve and be an Artist!

What is the value of a Baldwin 170 Overture organ?

Possibly the best top dollar figure (mint condition - with everything working, no case scratches, and having the original owners manual, too) would be around $500 depending on the particular demand and availability in your region. However, asking price is one thing ... what one will get is completely a different story.

Most expensive fender guitar ever?

A signed Fender Standard Series Stratocaster became the world's most expensive guitar, fetching a massive $2.8 million at auction in Doha, Qatar. Auctioned to aid victims of the 2004 tsunami disaster, the guitar broke the previous record held by Eric Clapton's $959,500.00 black strat.

Where can you buy an inexpensive ophicleide?

There is no such thing as an "inexpensive ophicleide". This somewhat eclectic instrument is undergoing something of a renaissance in the 21st century, partly because of US societies who wish to reconstruct the type of military band used in the American Civil War, and partly on account of its unique tonal characteristics that make it indispensable for "period instrument" concerts of orchestral music from the first half of the 19th century. Even wrecks of instruments offered for restoration can now command a reasonable price. The best way of finding an ophicleide MN paying condition is to consult regularly those websites offering early brass instruments for sale, if which there are are now a fair few on the Internet. But do not expect a cheap price!

How much is a record for the victor talking machine worth?

what about record 1905 1 sided record?

Answer

How much is it worth? Like all collectables, the answer is subjective as far as to the individual record itself. The artist, the condition of the record, the number of copies of that record in existance, etc., all come into play. Some might be worth a dollar or less, others might be worth hundreds. Victor's from 1910 to 1920 in good shape (no skips etc) could easily average $25 or more.

How good is the bc rich metal master Guitar?

looks cool but its a fancy BC Rich warlock bronze series, if you can get it for under 300$ your getting a good deal.

comfortable, light , very versatile pickups but metal comes from you, so switch the strings and put a low tuning. But honestly though keep saving up, the best warlocks right now that are affordable are the IT series ones, 100$ more online but you will like it 10x more.

metal comes from within though, thick strings, knowing what to play.. those sort of things.

What is the best flute for professionals?

Gemeinhardt. 100% Gemeinhardt. I would say a professional model Gemeinhardt flute.

Edit: Gemeinhardts are arguably the least reliable instruments in the flute industry. A repairman I know only uses them when doing demonstrations (tearing apart and reassembly). Best brands available are Muramatsu, Miyazawa, or Haynes. My Muramatsu is absolutely amazing. Has yet to fail me and has a beautiful sound.

What is the value of a 4RSP serial 72699 Gemeinhardt piccolo?

I would recommend calling your local flute dealer (or repair tech would also be a great avenue, as they usually Cary a book of serial numbers for various brands).

Or check places such as Ebay, Craigs List, or Musiciansfriend.com for flutes of the same make and model to see what they are selling for.

always take into consideration that value is largely dependent on condition

What is value of Thomas Fiesta organ Model AR-2?

For the most part, all but the most desirable organs end up curbside on trash day. Sad but true. Thomas had a clientel made up mostly of Lawernce Welk fans (he has his own model). However, Thomas organs also has a history with Vox. Anything with the Vox name on it sells for big money. One of those items is a Vox jaguar. That particular organ can be found on eBay for over a thousand dollars, all day, every day. Here's where it gets fun, the Thomas AR-2 has identical circuitry to the jaguar. It is worth several hundred dollars as a parts donor. The trick is finding the right buyer.

How much is a 1965 Hammond organ model?

It depends on what model it is. A spinet such as an L-100 or M-100 series might get $150-300 and are often given away. If it is a console module it is worth considerably more. A-100 models often sell for $1000-1500. C-3's usually get about $2000. RT-3's might sell for $1500-2000. The more in demand B-3 which is basically the same except for cabinet style as the previously mentioned console models can get $3000-5000 or more. A Leslie 122 or 147/145 speaker in excellent condition generally adds about $1500 to the value of a spinet or console organ.
