Lyon & Healy Harmonium!!!


I have just received the gift of an 1890s Lyon & Healy Harmonium Organ from a friend - I am so excited!!!!!

It is a single manual 11 stop instrument that was built between 1890 and 1895 - The serial number will give the exact date, if I can contact the company, and if they have records. The tone is amazing, and it is very good condition.. Pictures to follow.

Oh wow!! Congrats!! I never paid much attention to organs until I heard my wife's Uncle play one. He definitely gave me a new appreciation for them.

I look forward to the pictures emoticon

Re: Lyon & Healy Harmonium!!!


It is an amazing sounding instrument, with a tone that rumbles in your soul... emoticon very nice. I had been looking for one for many years, and told our friend, who has a health store in Winamac - she smiled and told of the one she would like to give away. It was bought for her grandmother's mother.

More research suggests that it was built in Chicago in 1893. I have taken the pictures, but can't remember the password for my photobucket account.. grrr. I need to get my laptop out of the trailer, along with it's internet card. No point in paying for the service when I leave it in the trailer..

Re: Lyon & Healy Harmonium!!!


I need to go over to the trailer and get my laptop.... why can't I remember to do that?

The sound is awesome - I am not sure how to share the music it creates, even though I do have a microphone, I don't have a tape or such..

Most digital cameras have a video recording setting. You could make a little video, which also records sound, and post it for free on youtube!
