Organs For Sale on Reverb

The electric organ is both one of the most vital and most underrated instruments of the past century. The Hammond is clearly the most famous example, but various organ models have been used on thousands of classic jazz, rock, pop, and blues songs. We've got vintage organs from earlier eras, as well as modern digital alternatives—check out the selection on Reverb.

What are organs?

An organ (musical instrument) is an instrument that produces sound by sending air through a series of pipes that are tuned to specific pitches. They can range from a small pipe organ to a large church organ to Hammond organs to digital organs.

How does an organ work?

A traditional pipe organ works via a wind system and a pipe system. When certain keys or foot pedals are pressed, air is sent through wooden or metal pipes that are tuned to specific pitches.

Hammond or electric organs work much differently. Rather than pushing physical air through pipes, it originally used something called a tonewheel to generate electric musical notes and an amplifier (aka tone cabinet) or Leslie speaker to mimic the pipe organ sound.

What are the different types of organs in music?

The different types of organs include:

  • Pipe organs
  • Barrel organs
  • Reed organ
  • Allen organ
  • Pump organ
  • Hammond organ
  • Electronic organs

What are the different types of organ music?

Though originally used in church music, today you can find organs in dozens of genres of music, including rock, jazz, and classical music.

What is a typical organ instrument price?

The price of an organ depends on the type of organ. An electric or digital organ will be the most affordable type of organ and can be found for as little as $50 depending on the age and condition. Meanwhile, a full pipe organ can be found for $30,000 on the low end to close to a million dollars.

You can also find Hammond-type organs for relatively low prices for the same reason you can find pianos for free -- sometimes folks just don’t want to move them and will happily give them away for free to someone who will.
