  1. What happens if any one of those suppliers decides to close their doors? You’re out of luck if you need your Phoenix organ serviced!

    1. Not so! Most of these components are available off the shelf from a number of different sources and are somewhat interchangeable. A competent pipe organ technician can sort it all out.

      1. There have been reports of many organs that are no longer supported because of lack of parts. Once off-the-shelve parts are no longer manufactured, they are no longer available. Buyer beware.

        1. I agree with this. Only interchangable thing might be those amplifiers they use. Allen parts are not cheap. But i can still get parts for my old TC5. Can’t say that about any other maker today. None.
