Everything about a Phoenix Organ makes it authentic to its pipe organ counterpart.   Our goal is to build for you the best possible musical instrument that will meet your particular needs.  We can provide whatever tonal palate you wish, be it  Baroque, Romantic, French, English, American or your own eclectic choice.  Our designers can assist you in ensuring that the instrument has musical integrity and meets your musical requirements.   Staff at Phoenix Organs have extensive experience of designing organs for both liturgical and concert use.

The Phoenix Organ System was developed in the UK and has been designed from the “ground up”, with no technical pre-conceptions, and is the most flexible on the market today. We continue to develop the system in UK.  Recent developments have enabled us to increase the amount of memory available to store sound samples  (up to 2048MBytes in our largest systems) further enhancing the quality and authenticity of the Phoenix Sound.  All the Phoenix Organ Systems used in instruments built in the UK and overseas are manufactured in the UK.

Old-world craftsmanship and the highest standards of excellence characterise the design and construction of our consoles.  The electronic elements of our organs are built to the highest standards and fully tested before shipping: we use standard electronic components to ensure their on-going availability. The sounds emanating from a Phoenix Organ, along with the look and feel of the console, will convince you that you are playing a truly fine pipe organ, one that you will  enjoy playing over and over again.

We believe that our instruments are the best substitute for the real thing.

Explore this site to find out why and order the CD to hear for yourself.  We can arrange demonstrations so that you can try out our organs yourself.  Contact your nearest agent or contact us directly.

To help you appreciate the excellent value our organs offer, we have prepared   specifications for a two manual and a three manual organ.  Please contact us (without obligation) for the current prices of these instruments  - we promise you will be pleasantly surprised.   The recent installation section of the web-site provides comprehensive details of some of the instruments we have recently installed.

 

What some of our customers have said about Phoenix Organs

"For some time I had been exploring the different options available for an organ for private practice.  Only when I heard the Phoenix system did I contemplate a digital organ for my house; the extraordinary realism together with the very comfortable and superbly finished consoles make Phoenix unequalled by any other digital organ system.  In addition, the style of organ and specification are completely at the choice of the client; this, together with the highly-sophisticated voicing software, means that there is never a feeling of having to live with something which is not exactly as one wants it.  I am delighted with the very beautiful tonal results Phoenix has achieved."

Robert Sharpe (Director of Music, Truro Cathedral)

 

"The Phoenix organ at Penallt has exceeded all expectations, not just in  the realism of its sound but in the variety and authenticity of its colours. It demonstrates persuasively that given high quality samples,  amplification and digital design systems the physical limitations   suggested by a traditional pipe organ can be left behind whilst  maintaining the aural illusion of a fine pipe instrument."

David R Murray (Penallt Church Organist)
