Present organ
Type of installation A 5 rank studio organ with Bourdon 16’ extended from the Gedeckt, this all new instrument is designed for a small studio whilst retaining the generous sound proportions of a larger instrument. The wide scaling and gentle voicing impart a warmth and intimacy of tone. The touch is precise and secure with a gentle pluck and quick repetition.
