The photo above was forwarded to this Blog.  They show a defective bench that came with the digital organ from a well-known manufacturer (not Allen).  This organ was dedicated in the past couple of months with the bench coming apart shortly thereafter, likely due to improper gluing.

This Blog includes photographs of various digital organs that are deficient in quality.  After reviewing these photographs some readers have questioned the importance of construction quality.  While there are many reasons why quality of construction should be important to organ consumers, the photograph offers one that should be on the top of that list.

  1. Let me guess Johannus? at least they used dowels. I mean they tried to something besides butt glue joints.

  2. Afterthought I have an old Allen organ bench that is orphaned and I remember when I was a lot heavier my friend and I stood on it to fix a ceiling fan and he was no lightweight either. I still have that bench. Just thinking about that it is strong.

  3. Ahhhh,…after closer look,…I would have to say Rodgers! If so,…what a shame for that to happen so soon! Looking to the left at the toe studs,and expression pedals tells me it’s a Rodgers! Again,…I’m wagering a guess!

  4. Wow,…if you look REALLY close at the back of the pedal clavier,…it looks as if a board is starting to become loose,…and I don’t think my eyes are playing tricks on me here. Really,…look REAL close and see if you don’t see what I’m seeing! It DOES look like a board is coming loose on the rear of the pedal clavier! As if the bench coming apart isn’t/wasn’t bad enough! BARELY two months old,and that organ is already falling apart,…starting with the bench!

  5. The organ is DEFINITELY a Rodgers! The toe studs and expression shoes are a dead give away!
