Pels organ (1967, 7/IP) for sale

front 275x500

The Bernard Pels & Sohn company built this organ for the chapel of the Overduin care center whereby the famous Dutch organist Feike Asma acted as consultant. On July 14th, 1967 Feike Asma inaugurated this pipe organ. The Pels-organ, which is in good condition, was well maintained by this company until the bankruptcy of Pels & Van Leeuwen in 2017.

The care center is currently being thoroughly renovated and adapted to the current requirements. Part of the new care center will be built on the site of the existing chapel. The new chapel will be given a place elsewhere in the complex and will become smaller and lower. Due to this the dimensions of the Pels-organ unfortunately no onger fit a suitable place for this beutiful instrument. The organ is available at short notice. The asking price of the owner is only Euro 19.900. No VAT is due on the purchase amount! The cost for dismantling and installation are borne by the buyer. If desired Van den Heuvel-Orgelbouw can of course be of service.

front285x3051877 this organ was built by John Laycock (1808-1889) for the Ickornshaw Methodist Church in North Yorkshire (UK). 1907 the organ was moved to the Carleton Methodist Church where it was used up to the moment the church was closed in 1999. At that moment the organ was bought by J.L. van den Heuvel-organ builders in The Netherlands. At that moment the organ was completely original except the electric blower (the hand pump installation is still present but is no longer in use). 2002 the organ was located in the auditorium of the Jacobus Fruytier high school in Uddel (NL). The owner has asked Van den Heuvel to find a suitable new location for this beautiful instrument.

Restoration The Koff Organ Hagestein

front200x300The De Koff organ of the Hervormde Kerk in Hagestein was inaugurated on November 18, 1920. This completely newly built organ replaced an old cabinet organ, which was in poor condition. The soberly designed organ case is beautiful on the organ gallery and in the church. During the last church restoration, the pine organ case with gallery, along with other parts of the church interior, were repainted in oak imitation. The entire interior has thus become a beautiful visual unity. The De Koff organ was restored in the years 1968-1969 by organ builder A.H. de Graaf from Leusden.

At the beginning of 2021, a plan was drawn up to restore the organ. The Bourdon 16 will return to the manual and the original transmission will be restored. The Octaaf 2 which took the place of the Bourdon 16 will be moved to a newly made side block at the front of the windchest.

In the first week of January 2022, the organ was disassembled and transferred to the workshops in Dordrecht. The restoration of all the parts has started there.
