4 manual House Organ, Belfast

If the cursor changes to a pointing finger when you hover over a thumbnail, then there is a full size counterpart which is
roughly 1024 x 768 and around 160k. You can either open this with a left click and use the back button on your browser
or you can save the larger image on your hard drive by right clicking and selecting "Save Target as...", but please note that
not all thumbnails have a larger counterpart.

This organ is a rebuild of the old hire organ, which had undergone several changes over the years.
It was time to put the organ to better use rather than simply waiting for the all too infrequent hire outings.
It is now played nearly every day, and gets updated with new samples or occasional stop changes as required

Well first of all you have to get the organ to its destination....

As this was a four manual organ,
we had to use a four manual BMW
- this is the only one we know of in the country - if not the world!

A mix of stained & natural oak maintains visual interest

The general pistons are above the Solo keys with the necessary digital displays nestling behind a smoked perspex panel

The proud owner tries it out for the first time

We can't actually show you the smile on his face when he eventually was allowed to turn the wick up, but you know the way all organists love to "pull out the thirty two foot"... ... but here's the "smile" on his wife Susie's face when he was cookin' at Gas Mark 10

Then he put in all the loud stops and made quiet sounds

Much nicer
