We help the organ builder create the ideal console for each situation. We offer virtually unlimited freedom of choice in style, finish, key covering, stop control and layout. Our experienced staff will assist in the custom design of the console to suit the customer’s needs and specifications, matching or complementing the architecture, style and finish of the environment in which the console is to be installed.
Designing the right console for your needs
Working together, we can create the ideal console for your particular application. Careful use of our Console Check Sheet ensures that every console specification and feature is addressed. From this information, we produce detailed computer assisted design (CAD) layout drawings and even stain and finish samples as required for the builder’s review and approval.
Generous performance margins, quality construction
Construction begins as soon as the cabinet and layout details are approved. Our rigorous and exacting designs for cabinets, stop controls and keyboards are engineered to provide generous performance margins. Manual keyboards feature our own expanded sharp spacing, and pedal keyboards are constructed to AGO standards. Both are built in our shop. To ensure a lifetime of trouble-free operation, we use only the finest traditional materials, including solid, well-aged and clear cabinet-grade woods and customer selected Organ Control Systems and electronics. In the hands of our worldclass master cabinetmakers, your console cabinet soon begins to take shape. Painstaking attention to fine joinery, matching grains and ingenious artistry yields a console that has unsurpassed strength, performance and beauty, ready for your choice of finish. All components are installed, adjusted and thoroughly tested to guarantee not only functional reliability, but also the delicate and consistent balance and feel for pure quality.
