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 45 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.

• The latest Allen organ installation in Perth is into the Chapel at Scotch College in Swanbourne. Scotch College first purchased an Allen organ in 1982, which was installed in their Memorial Hall. This organ served them faithfully over the intervening thirty plus years, so when considering an organ for the Chapel, an Allen organ was a logical choice. Installed in May 2016, the organ is an Allen Bravura model L-10 which is also fitted with an Allen Navigator. The model L-10 has 28 speaking stops, and 41 stops in total. It has four tonal suites and in this organ, the optional Wurlitzer suite is installed. The organ has two audio channels, and these drive two speaker enclosures which are located at the front right hand side of the Chapel.
The Chapel is an architecturally designed building of unusual shape, with sharp raked ceilings and unusual angles. It seats around 300 and has beautiful stained glass feature windows. The sound of the organ adequately fills the building, providing a wonderful addition to a lovely building.

• Other recent local news is about installations into private residences. The latest private residence installation occurred in January 2016, when we installed a new Allen model CF-3 into a private residence in Coogee. The Allen organ has replaced a pipe organ installation. The features of this instrument are:
- • 23 speaking stops, 32 stops in total.
- • 2 manuals, 1 expression pedal, internal speaker (two channel) 120W audio system.
- • 6 general pistons, 4 divisional pistons, 4 capture memories.
- • Advanced MIDI capabilities.
- • LED stop action.
• Another private residence installation occurred back in July 2015, when 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 in 2015. The owner or this organ 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, there was another organ installation in a private residence. A new Bravura model L-5 was 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 a 12 month period. With 27 stops and 4 tonal suites, this organ provides excellent value for money. CLICK HERE FOR MORE DETAILS OF THIS INSTRUMENT.
• Other local news 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.
