Organ Console

organcThe detached console is made of red oak with contrasting walnut for the keydesk. The keyboards have bone naturals and vermillion sharps. The drawknobs are rosewood with bone labels. The Pedal naturals are maple with walnut sharps. The key action is mechanical which means that there is a direct linkage between the key and the valve which lets the air into the pipes. In this way, the organists have direct control over the speech of the pipes. The stop action is electro-pneumatic and the combination action is solid-state with eight memory levels for the thumb pistons and toe studs.
