We supply and service digital church and theatre organs and midi devices from the Allen Organ Company. Allen Organs are a cost effective alternative to a pipe organ - providing an instrument that needs minimal maintenance and never needs tuning. WHY CONSIDER AN ALLEN ORGAN? Click here to find out.
Allen Organs have been installed in more than 70 churches and buildings within Western Australia and in Perth, ranging from self contained two manual models to three manual instruments with large audio systems and midi expansion devices. Here's where.
The Allen Organ company has been building organs for over 70 years and it is more than 40 years since they produced the world's first digital musical instrument in 1971. Click here to watch a video showing the history of the Allen Organ Company.

• Recent local news is about installations into private residences. In July 2015, we installed the instrument pictured on the right into a private residence. This organ was traded when Queens Park Catholic Church upgraded their organ earlier this year. The owner has played an Allen in his church for over thirty years, but has now taken the opportunity to purchase an instrument for his home as well. The organ is a model MDS-36, with 44 drawknobs, second voices on selected stops, a large capture action system, and two channel audio system.
• During June 2015, we also installed two organs into private residences. A new Bravura model L-5 has been delivered and installed into a home in Darlington. The L-5 is proving to be a popular model, this being the third L-5 installation in Western Australia in 12 months. With 27 stops and 4 tonal suites, this organ provides excellent value for money.

The other installation is a second hand MADC-220 organ. Traded when the Darlington Anglican Church upgraded, this instrument has now been installed in a house in Coogee.
• Other local news in 2015 is all about satisfied customers returning and upgrading to a larger Allen organ.
St Joseph's Catholic Church in Queen's Park recently upgraded to a larger instrument. In the case of St Joseph's, this is their fourth upgrade. Originally they purchased a model MADC220 back in 1987 - a small 2 manual organ. A couple of years later, they upgraded to a larger 2 manual MADC2140 organ. Then eight years later, when they moved into a new building, they again upgraded to a larger 2 manual instrument with drawknobs and a larger audio system. Now in 2015, they have upgraded again, this time to a Protege AP-31 model - a three manual instrument with expander drawer and recorder.
Proof that once people have experienced an Allen, they don't want to settle for anything less.
• The second upgrade has occurred at St Cuthbert's Anglican Church in Darlington. Originally purchasing a second hand Allen about 12 months ago, they were so impressed with the instrument, that they have now purchased a new Bravura model L-5. This is a 2 manual, 27 stop organ with two audio channels and four tonal suites.
Again backing up the statement that once people have experienced an Allen, they don't want to settle for anything less.
• The third upgrade occurred at the end of 2014 when a private owner upgraded his organ - and this is also his third organ.
Back in 2001, we sold a small 2 manual organ to this organist for use in his private residence. The owner was so impressed with this first organ, that in 2005 he upgraded to a larger 3 manual, 38 stop instrument. He has now upgraded again, this time to a Bravura model L-341 instrument; a 3 manual, 58 stop organ with 5 audio channels and 8 tonal suites. The organ was customised with a split console so that it could be brought in through the front door of the house and with a reduction in the number of audio channels to suit the home installation.
More proof that people don't want to settle for anything less than an Allen.
