Deckworth Organs

Hi

 

I've just come across a reference to "Deckworth organs" in a cassette review in "The Organ" for Jan 1988. The review describes it as a hybrid instrument - a few pipes and electronics for the basses - does anyone have any more info - or know if any still exist? There's nothing coming up on NPOR, nor on a general web search.

 

Thanks in advance

 

Every Blessing

I believe Peter Collins and Allen Organs collaborated on a few instruments, not sure if it was that far back or not.

 

Hi

 

Thanks for the reply.

 

As far as I know the Collins/Allen tie up has only come about in the last couple of years. The ref. to Deckworth organs is nearly 20 years ago, when hybrids were very much in their infancy - Compton did a few (plus the "Melotone" attachments in many of their cinema organs, and I think that a firm in the Midlands tried the concept, but Deckworth is a new name to me - presumably the company didn't survive very long - so far I've only seen this one reference to them.

 

Every Blessing
