    Introducing Doug Hall, keyboard builder

    Hello all. I found this forum by searching for curved keyboards. What I've found seems like a great place to bounce a few ideas around. I am building an ergonomic keyboard, the likes of which you may never have seen before. Please feel free to visit my Facebook profile until I have uploaded more photos here. I think you will appreciate the pipe organ building applications, as this keyboard of mine is basically reverse engineered from a 1950's Mohler pipe organ console. The pedals which have a few interesting additions are a 1920's unmarked, probably Mohler pedalboard which matches but predates the ergonomic standard set by the AGO. There are 481 keys on three levels, (four manuals) and a xylophone that will be a precisely pitched instrument and a MIDI controller. I will add my facebook profile link.
    Go Introducing Doug Hall, keyboard builder-keys-cut-jpgto Photos/Albums/The Keyboard Project. I am anxious to hear from some professionals in the field what they think of my pedal modifications. Thanks!Introducing Doug Hall, keyboard builder-renderscan-jpg

    Aha, The Air Force Academy Chapel Organ - I forget if its a Holtkamp or a Moller instrument...
    *If a man wants God to hear his prayer quickly, then before he prays for anything else, even his own soul, when he stands and stretches out his hands towards God, he must pray with all his heart for his enemies. Through this action God will hear everything that he asks* -Abba Zeno-

    *Protagoras: "Truth is subjective. What is true for you, and what is true for me, is true for me. Your opinion is true by virtue of its being your opinion."

    *Socrates: "My opinion is: Truth is absolute, not opinion, and that you are in absolute error. Since this is my opinion, then according to your philosophy you must grant that it is true."
