ALLEN "FRENCH TERRACE-STYLE" CONSOLES

In addition to its well-known American classic consoles, Allen offers several other styles including the handsome French three-manual terraced console shown here.

ALLEN INSTALLATION OF THE MONTH

Heritage H-IV 79C Pipe and Digital Combination Instrument

Concert Artist Diane Bish performed a magnificent Dedication Concert on this impressive instrument shortly after its installation.

The many design details of this four-manual Heritage console, such as the gold-painted Division divider strips and stop tab molding, brass toe studs, and satin black-painted console interior surfaces make it a visual treat.

We received a response from John Stump in New York who owns an Allen organ in his home and who, years ago, served as an associate to the Allen dealer in Mineola.
