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.

• 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 is the most recent church in Perth to upgrade 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. CLICK HERE FOR MORE DETAILS OF THIS INSTRUMENT.
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. Now, he has 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 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.
• Every now and again another achievement occurs. Over the years, the majority of organs sold have been two manual instruments. It was a highlight when we imported out first three manual instrument back in the early 1990s.
For a couple of weeks in November 2014, there were three, 3 manual organs in our studio. The one on the left is a L-341 which had just arrived and was awaiting delivery to its new owner. In the middle is his old organ, a model AP-30. And the one on the right is a new Historique III.
Three, three manual organs all in the one location. It is not often that this happens...
