Organ Console Project
A good friend of mine made this organ console. He used to be an organ builder, so he knows all standard data and dimensions. This console has been built in accordance with the BDO standards. All the components were manufactured by him, except the keyboards and the toe pistons.
I use this console with the progam ’Hauptwerk’. This program sounds exactly like a real pipe organ! See more: www.hauptwerk.com
If you wish to have a console like this or you have your own idea, see the photos below, and feel free to ask. My friend is working for VERY reasonable prices, well below any company on this market
The music stand is made of glass,
which resists of scratches!
I have chosen the Fatar 61TP/6LP keyboards, and ordered them from a German company. The keys are equipped with ’tracker touch’ mechanism. Each key has a pressure point, and it feels like you were playing on a mechanical tracker organ.
The pedalboard is concave and parallel
The pedalboard has 32 notes, BDO standard dimensions.
The pedalboard is completely silent.
There are no mechanical noises.
It is almost inaudible,
thanks to the dampening installed,
and the Kingbright reflective opto-eletric sensors.
(No switches, no contacts)
There are two springs for each pedal key.
The rear one is made of wood.
…and the front one is made of steel.
Toe pistons are from the Syndyne company, USA.
The keyboards are built in angle
to fulfill the BDO 3 manual standard.
Swell or crescendo pedals
were made of wood.
Here are the eletronics
and the adjustable resistance
of the pedals
Installing the first manual…
…and the second on top.
Manuals are attached precisely.
…and fixed with 4 screws,
to increase stability!
Here are the 183 springs
of the three manual.
The pistons and the music stand
were installed later…
