This list is based mostly on the printed listing produced by
Judd Walton in 1970 and updated in 1973. Some corrections and
additions have been made. The original list was produced using
thousands of 80 column punch cards. This web site accesses
data directly from an MS-ACCESS database.
Wurlitzer was only one, but by far the largest, of many builders
of Theatre Pipe Organs. This list only includes the Wurlitzer
instruments but it may be extended to other builders if the
information can be gathered to do it. Wurlitzer also produced
many band organs and photoplayers which are not included in this list.
ERRORS and OMISSIONS
There are errors in this list, despite the best efforts of all
involved. The information ranges back over a period of many years
and there were no complete records kept from the beginning.
There are many omissions due to incomplete and lost records and
to the fact that these instruments are still being moved, changed,
lost and found in many countries around the world.
If you identify an error or know of any extra information there are
several things that you could do.

The list was limited to relocations and major changes but
with current technology it is possible for all changes to be included.
It would be wonderful, but impossible, to track every change including
all additions, deletions or replacement of every console, rank of pipes,
percussions, chests, regulators, openings, closings, births etc.
The more information that is gathered now will
mean that less information will be lost later.
Please include the source of your information so
that any conflicting information may be checked and the conflict
reconciled as well as it can be. If the only source of any piece of
information is your memory then now is the time to copy it to
It always will be.
Every specialty has them.
