Roswell, GA is located just north of Atlanta. St. Michael's Roman Catholic Church chose the Phoenix Organ PT 335, a three manual, 35 stop, 45 rank instrument, with 4 specifications and 6 audio channels. The well-chosen stoplists of this organ offers flexibility and resources for the organist.
The organ is placed in the choir loft and features an attractive, well-built console in oak to match the existing oak furnishings. Speakers were installed in a central chamber designed according to D.L. Simmons & Company recommendations and built and installed by the church.
There will be a decorative pipe façade placed at the front of the chamber, which will also be installed by church members. Having the organ speak from this high, central-axis and with the good acoustics in this beautiful space, makes for a wonderful blend of sound, and very effective accompaniment for the choir and congregation. Everyone involved has been pleased with the success of this project and the wonderful sound of the Phoenix Organ. Phoenix AcoustiCube speakers, with their di-pole design, created an excellent spread of sound.
The organ was custom-built for the church by Phoenix Organs North America, builders of finely crafted digital organs, and installed and voiced by Dave Simmons of D.L. Simmons & Company, representatives in the Southeast US.
As with all Phoenix Organs, this organ uses all Crown power amplifiers, Lexicon Reverb Processor and Furman power sequencer/surge suppressor.
