St. Luke Evangelical Lutheran, Schaefferstown, PA
50 Stop Three-Manual Allen Digital Organ

When St. Luke Evangelical Lutheran Church in Schaefferstown, PA needed a new organ, their Organ Committee went out to "listen" to various models, makes and sizes. They turned to Allen after falling in love with the rich sound of a Quantum™ Three-Manual 50 Stop digital organ.

Organist Kirk Garner was so impressed with their new digital organ that he wrote to Allen Organ: "We love our new Allen organ! I'm spending many hours practicing on this wonderful organ. As a pipe organ tech for thirty years, I think the Allen organ is the best digital organ in the world. It is because of the sound and how they are made. They are a good investment for any church to make, and they last a long time. To everyone at the Allen Organ Company, keep up the good work, and I hope your company is around for many years to come."

The pipe facade at St. Luke's dates back to 1810 when a one-manual, six stop organ was first installed by Christian Dieffenbach. The pipes were "decorated" in 1885 by Thomas Dieffenbach.
