A Video of the Smith Connoisseur


Hi folks

I could not resist. Here is a YouTube recording of yours truly playing the old unrestored Smith Connoisseur.

My dear daughter #1 kindly videoed it on her iPhone, so it is not uber cinema-graphically polished or anything.

Plenty of notes and stops do not work, ciphers galore, hopelessly out of tune, wheezy bellows......but hey, enjoy the video anyway.

Alternatively, type this search into YouTube - Smith Connoisseur reed organ - God so loved the world - Hymn



I can have fun messing around on this organ whilst the Estey Artist Z56 is being resurrected.

Take care folks ...... there will be more uploads eventually.
