Op. 6 - No frills but no compromises

PostSat Nov 19, 2022 9:36 pm

My latest instrument is a custom design built entirely to AGO specs, but is the lightest and most portable console I know of.

Op. 6 was commissioned by a Chicago area organist who lives on the upper floor of a building without an elevator. The idea was to build an instrument that was modular, portable, and still hold true to AGO spec.

The three manual key cheeks are machined from a solid 2” slab of white oak, with piston rails also machine from white oak.

The bench is made from a solid oak slab, with black steel legs, matching the keyboard stand.

The expression pedals are “potentiometer-less” to make them more durable with no moving parts.

I'm late to the party, but this is quite splendid. Excellent, as always. I love your plaque too. (I need one for my stack, lol!)

Very nice!
Are you going to build for resale?
