    They are quite attractively made, varnished, and play a good note. I've no idea of the orginial builder, but they were incorporated into an organ rebuild in the midlands in the 1980s, as a 4ft "Harmonic Flute" stop on the Pedal organ.

    Ahlborn SL-100 Compact Digital Classical Pipe Organ. This Organ is great for flat, house or church, with high quality sound and digital sound samples from 4 very high quality internal speakers. Although this does not have bass pedals it has a bass section for the left hand, which compensates for the lack of bass pedals very well, which can be turned off and on so the left hand side can work as an ordinary single manual organ.

  • Roland Atelier AT10S Electric Organ / Electronic Practice Piano

    Used condition. Does come with stand, just had it apart as it needed a little solder on a dry joint to stop it cutting out when moved. Display works. Floppy drive works. Keyboards touch sensitive. Everything works. Bought it to help with a problem with my other Atelier but the internals of an S (2001 models) are very different from that of an R (1999). It would be a shame to rip the display out and dump the rest! I also needed a sound board and Roland engineers are dying out...

Organs are large keyboard instruments usually seen in churches. Their sounds are produced by playing the keyboard, leading to a gust of pressurised air (wind) being blown through their pipe rows. 

In recent times, they are no longer supplied air from bellows, as they are now usually powered by electricity.

Types of Organ

  • Pipe Organs – the most common type of organ. Each pipe sits atop a hollow container that is filled with wind whenever its player works the organ’s bellows. These are the organs you commonly see in churches
  • Electronic Organs – These organs are fairly self-explanatory, being equipped with an electronic keyboard and designed to imitate the sound of pipe or theatre organs. They have since branched off into several other types of organs
  • Theatre Organs – unique in that they are a type of pipe organ developed to create music for silent films. They are shaped like a horseshoe and their consoles are usually coloured in bright, extravagant shades

Which organ should I buy?

Each organ sounds different, despite them being known for their distinctive sound. 

The way an organ sounds is the most important aspect of buying one, as the brand and age of the organ can affect the sound.

  • Pipe organs - tend to boast a richer, fuller sound and are also made from high-quality materials, ensuring their longevity. Pipe organs, however, must be regularly maintained
  • Electronic organs  - easier to use and the fact that they are powered by electricity and thus do not need you to work the bellows is an added advantage. You can attach many accessories to electronic organs, such as MIDI controllers
  • Theatre organs - essentially similar to pipe organs, though there are some differences. Church organs generally have a straight row of stop tabs and rockers, while the theatre style console is shaped in the form of a horseshoe. The sounds they produce are also quite different, as the foundation tone of the pipe organ is the diapason, while the theatre organ uses the tibia
