Question
Can you tell me where we can purchase a switch for our church organ Baldwin Model C-630T?

Answer
Hello Deb,  Baldwin, as you may know, closed its doors some time ago.  Your instrument was built in 1976 making it 38 years old.  Normally this would not be a problem except factory support no longer exists.  When the inventory was auctioned off, its dispersal was difficult to track.  However, there are a number of technicians who routinely serviced Baldwins who can be reached through the Music Instrument Technician Association:  http://mitatechs.org/taxonomy/term/49  You should be able to find someone there who has the switch you need.
