Height – 122cm

Narrowest width of console is 66cm – this is the narrowest width of a door that the organ can go through on it’s side – both sides of the door should be clear so that the organ can be pivoted through.


  1. Happy New Year to you!
    I am a Fellow of the Royal College of Organists and have been looking for a practice instrument since having had to part with my Rushworth and Draper house organ a couple of years back. Would very much like to talk to you about this organ. Might it be possible to ring you? My numbers are 0141 xxx xxxx (land line) and 07931 xxxxxx (mobile). I am based in Glasgow where I teach full time at the Royal Scottish Academy of Music.
    Many thanks,
