We are pleased to have been commissioned to build a three manual and pedal organ with both classical and theatre organ voices.  The specification is given below and the proposed layout for the console is available.  The organ is to be built into a lighted tab console. The Theatre specification is built using the unit / extension principles and includes percussion and traps.  The organ console has been delivered and the classical voices installed: the theatre voices will be completed by the end of the year.
