AR 100 & AR 80 for SALE - Whitley Bay Organ Centre
« on: January 09, 2011, 12:49:54 PM »
IMPORTANT MESSAGE

Edna is in hospital following a heart attack.  Her sons have decided they are not continuing the business, so THE WHITLEY BAY ORGAN CENTRE IS NOW PERMANENTLY CLOSED.

See last posting below for an Update

I periodically get sent advertising from Whitley Bay Organ Centre (where I bought my AR 80 from, a number of years ago now), and in the December newsletter there is an AR 80 for SALE at 899 and an AR 100 at 1599.  This includes FREE delivery, and I believe there is a 1 year warranty (they do a 3 year warranty on new organs).

Have put this up so you have something to compare prices with.

Please note .. I have updated the prices showing on their website today, 25th June 2015.  See last posting.  Hugh

I got a letter and DVD from Whitley Bay Home Organs yesterday, offering me a brand new 11,000 Orla Grande Theatre for 5,700 plus my AR-100.  I'm not interested in the Orla.

Only 2 things will prise me away from my AR - That is a Roland AT-900C (or Wersi Scala) at the right price (which they aren't right now - probably will have to wait until a new model comes out and the price of the old model dips) and one of my kids needs to leave home as neither of the target organs will fit in the space I currently have in an alcove in my upstairs study.

So, unless my AR dies, I'll be staying put for the foreseeable.

We own an Orla Grand Theatre and an AR 100.  The AR 100 is beautiful for the organ sounds, whatever sound you like.

Hi Hugh.

I have dealt with Whitley Bay and EDNA many times over the last 30years and the problem now is that you don't get to deal or talk to her, it's always Barry and the deals aren't as good as they were. The service is very good and delivery.  However, they don't update their site often enough like the other dealers do and the lack of prices causes a lack of confidence in the deals (imho) although they do send out regular newsletters.

Regards

Peter

Sadly the Yamaha AR Series is not immune from the drastic loss of residual value that prevails in the home organ marketplace. Of late there have been a number of 'bargains' to be had on eBay, currently there is a tidy AR-80 which has been on for a while at 420 including free U.K. delivery.

Unfortunately these offers never seem to be there when I want anything!

Kind regards.

David

I have phoned Whitley Bay Organ Centre today (Thursday 25th June 1015) and they have one AR 80 and 8 x AR 100 organs for sale.  They say price depends on whether or not the 'gold lettering' is in pristine condition or whether it has faded.  The AR 80 is 800 and the AR 100s around the 1,100 mark (depending on condition).

UPDATE!!

All their existing stock is up for grabs.  Go to their website:

http://www.whitleybayorgans.co.uk/

and click on the word CLEARANCE (or click on this LINK to go there directly):

http://www.whitleybayorgans.co.uk/clearance.html

They say MAKE US AN OFFER!! .. ALL THIS STOCK MUST GO!!

I presume this is for their USED stock; and I would not have thought they could offer the 1yr guarantee they would normally give with any purchases.

Ring their Order Hot Line ... 0191 2571666

Update from the Whitley Bay Organs Website:

www.whitleybayorgans.co.uk - they say -

We are very sorry to announce that Edna Halliday - who ran Whitley Bay Organs for the past 35 years - has sadly passed away after a stroke.

Her family would like to thank you for your past business.


I'm sure that many AR Group Members have dealt with Edna at Whitley Bay Organs, and will be sorry to hear this news.
