I too have an ORSI - I'm glad I found you, I thought I was the only one. It's had an interesting life that I'd love to get to the bottom of.
It's an ex-school model and stamped ILEA, which I think is the former Inner London Education Authority that disbanded years ago.

I estimate from that it's 30 to 40 years old. It ended up in Manchester somehow, in the hands of someone who didnt have a clue what it was and was happy to take a mere £100 for it.

My teacher thinks it has a beautiful tone, with some Nick Winfield reeds I was flying in my lessons and she believes that I got myself a bargain.

Good Luck - hope you have as much pleasure from your ORSI as I do mine.
