Having a high quality sixteen-channel audio system (14.2 configuration) this is the ideal three manual English organ for a great many situations. Combined with a UL speaker system, it delivers realism and power in churches, chapels, halls and crematoria, whereas with a smaller speaker system, which can easily be floor or wall mounted, it is the perfect instrument for home practice. As ever we use one speaker per amplifier so this instrument, containing a generous set of fourteen speakers for forty five speaking stops, has a ratio of just over three stops per speaker, placing it in the exceptionally high quality range of sound.
Of course the crowning glory of the ‘Windermere’ is that it is voiced in its various configurations to a very high standard by Professor Ian Tracey of Liverpool Cathedral. Ian has been involved in the design process, including the specification and choice of the most appropriate samples to use from our vast library to deliver that very special sound of a true English organ.
Expect nothing but the best with advanced features that come as standard.
