Organ consoles frequently become available that are suitable for rebuilding using the Phoenix electronic system. Pipe organ consoles in particular are often of high quality and the hardwoods used in their construction are of value. Whether or not the 'front end' of the Phoenix system is used to control pipes or is fed into our digital sampling system, any good console can be put back into the useful condition that it deserves. At Phoenix Organs we like to recycle used consoles whenever possible as the cost of replacing such cabinetry is high. Every individual project must be seriously considered before any work is undertaken as it must be determined how worthwhile the finished product will be. Below is useful information to serve as a guideline for making informed decisions.
