Church-organs.com has been live for over a year. Given this milestone it is appropriate to restate the Site’s mission.
While Church-organs.com is hosted by Allen Organ Company. this Site has not received any complaints about the validity of the un-doctored photographs or material included.
In recent years some digital organ customers have encountered support issues that are problematic for the industry’s reputation. Allen Organ Company has been contacted by churches that contracted for organs, paid deposits, but did not receive the organs. In some cases Allen assisted these customers, sharing in the loss. Customers have also encountered difficulty servicing instruments built by some manufacturers due to lack of parts availability. Through transparent information, customers can better understand the risks involved prior to making a purchase decision.
Choosing a digital church organ is a complex process. These organs not only include advanced technology, much of which is hidden in integrated circuits, but also craftsmanship in consoles and the duplication of a centuries-old art-form. Unlike most technology-based products that are discarded after a few years, digital organs are large investments expected to serve for decades. Should the organs not be built with quality and backed by a company with support capabilities, the desired longevity will not be possible. The photographs and material included in this site allow consumers to be informed on these issues.
Church-organs.com accepts comments submitted by readers and other builders that include objective material that could assist consumers. Educated consumers are smart consumers.
