Tube organ - stripping

I hope this is the correct forum for this topic...

I am getting ready to strip an old Lowery console tube organ. My primary question is what should I be looking for as far as usable parts...Transformers, caps, tubes, etc. I have popped the back off of it and the field coil speakers seem to be in pristine shape, besides the dust. As a matter of fact, the old thing was well maintained over the years. it was recently given to me by my parents...and I don't really play, plus some of the lower notes have taken on a "foghorn" sound. So, it's time for stripping and disposal.


the hole amp is good for projects. the speakers if you dont want em go for a good price on ebay.

i just picked up a amp from a old organ.

the caps and resisters may need to be replaced so there not

Neat things to get. Does it use individual LC oscillators, or 12 main oscillators and frequency dividers for each octave? I've taken apart both; the first kind has some 54 12AU7s or 12AX7s in it (I got Conn 12AU7s), the other used 6 x 6CG7s with germanium transistor flip-flop dividers, it must've been newer.

Transformers are ALWAYS precious, save them wherever possible!
