Probably true even tho appears this support can be extended as it has adjustable width 28.75 - 42" (730 - 1067 mm)
however an AGO pedal board width is 1357mm - 54.43".
Can't tell if the support's width dimension is for the top or between the legs.

I'm not sure I would be using a full AGO pedal board in this case. Anyway, not in my immediate future plans. :wink:

I am using a similar stand for my portable organ (see viewtopic.php?f=21&t=17843)

However, we have extended it with some U-profile that fits exactly into the bar. (Please correct me if I used the wrong words, this is stuff one neither learns in school nor in everyday life). This is fixed, so I can't change the width anymore, but this was not a problem.

Agree. And I didn't learn about Hauptwerk for many years after graduating from school either. "Book learning" has it's place and is a good basis for future learning experiences. It is said you can learn from your mistakes. I hold that to be very true. So since I make lots of 'mistrakes', I hopefully am learning many new things. Never found learning to be so easy and it does require quite a lot of determination. Fortunately there are many contributors to this Forum who share their knowledge and experience. Much appreciated. Not repeating the same mistakes is the trick. :wink:

I recall hearing that it took Thomas Edison 10,000 "experiences" to make the first light bulb. Wonder if he thought about LED's? 8)

Who said the manuals needed to come out over the pedals?

Cant imagine it would have been comforrable when it was built 300 years ago with the stops coming out the kneeboard mind you. It's the famous Egedacher Organ in the Collegiate Church of Zwettl, Austria.

At my church, we use the following stand for our 2 manual Nord C2D:

https://www.long-mcquade.com/1716/Keyboards/Keyboard-Accessories/Yorkville-Sound/Deluxe-4-Leg-Collapsible-Keyboard-Stand.htm

We have found it very sturdy, and the height can be adjusted. We have never tried to fit an AGO pedalboard under it, but because the legs move, it is quite flexible. I would definitely recommend it.

There is also available a second tier:

Prices are in Canadian dollars.

Ominous in all respects. Looks quite unlike most other organs we are used to seeing.

Quite a clever idea to build the organ into the fireplace.

It lends a whole new meaning to the term: flue pipes!

Yes, that Austrian organ is quite a thing isn't it? Recently restored by Kuhn:
https://www.orgelbau.ch/en/organ-details/801570.html

Here's a couple more images. It is a fairly impressive level of detail to have pipes and gold pipeshades on the rear of the Ruckpositive and the sides of the music desk, as well as the front.

The choir organ is no less impressive though it would be easy to mistake it for a pulpit:
