I have Found this organ in stock on an English Site for 12000 Pounds.
I think it is a pretty Good price for a 3 manual Organ.
I would like to hear and your opinion...
What i dont know is much about Content organs themselves. I mean, what is their quality (both sound and construction)

Thank you for replying

Welcome to the site.

I'm not fimilliar with the brand, but with the specs supplied I won't mind operating this appliance if our church were to put one in.

Thanks for the sound clips ... :up:

Wonderful sound - very clear with speech characteristics that of the pipe organ.
I am enamored with the case design on these "upright organs". An innovative design I've not seen other organ companies offer.

Looks like a fine organ to own, to me.

Hello Nicholas,
We have recently got a Content D6800 (3 man/ ped) digital classical organ in our church in India (Mumbai). I've been happy with the instrument. It has a nice sound and a large range of registers with pre-programmed voices in the soundbank.

You have to make sure that the amplification is adequate.
All the best,
Ravi

Thank you for replying!
I have heard also many sound samples and the sounds are really good!
The organ is for my house, so i dont need many amplifiers!
