Allen Organ Company Factory Tour
Sub-Assemblies - Key and Keyboard Assembly

Allen keyboards are in themselves a work of art. Featuring wooden key sticks and extruded aluminum key beds, Allen keyboards are meticulously adjusted by hand to ensure uniformity of tension, travel and switching point.

Allen's unique keystick-making machine in operation.

The travel and tension of each key
is adjusted by hand.

Consistent shaping, felt application, and hole locations ensure that each keystick fits and functions properly in the keyboard when fully assembled.

Individual key sticks are selected and
matched for use in a single keyboard.
