  • New Johannus organs?

    Has anyone heard the rumour that Johannus will introduce new organ models on their annual dealer meeting in April this year? Does anyone know more about this?

    Re: New Johannus organs?



    We have heard similar rumours about some "spectacular" new models going to be introduced soon.</P>


    My guess is that a dealer meeting environment is as good as any place to do this. An organ manufacturer who has the manpower and R&amp;D money to pursue new organ designs in these days of rough economical uncertaincies must surely be one of the better companies around.</P>


    Time will tell ifnew products can entice more buyers, but with their near half-price sales for current products still on-going, this company must surely be considered a winner.</P>


    But why havetheir competitorsnot jumped on the bandwagon with lower prices and new products ?</P>

      I'm guessing that their Vivaldi and Symphonica models will be available soon in the US. Look on the Johannus website for more information. You'll have to look at other regions than the US, though.</p>

      Also, you might notice that they have removed all pricing from their US web pages. Perhaps their "half-price" sale is over?</p>

        The US websiteshows all their prices inbold numbers and being the only manufacturer to do so, my guess is that they will continue to show $$.</P>


        What is keeping the competitors from showing what their stuff is worth ?</P>

          You are correct. Their prices are back up after being missing for a couple of days.</p>

            Allen's cheapest Chapel organ is advertised in The American Organist at $9,995 plus tax and set-up.</p>

            Their honesty is appreciated as well.

              Checking out both the A and J websites, J has an Opus 7 that compareswith the smallest A Chapel organ, except price.</P>


              J says that it gives you 2 complete sets of samples and their price is only $6,650 plus delivery and set up. Tax is only applicable if bought by an individual I think. </P>

                  I could see it being CC since there is mention of a "Revolutionary" Technique ........CC's most famous feat being his use of his feet to play the left hand part of Chopin's Revolutionary Etude in C-.</p>

                    One of them could be the Symphonica series of organs that will be introduced to the US, but were launched first in Europe? The other could be the new range of Vivaldi organs.

                    I gather the Symphonica contains samples of French, German and Dutch organs plus what seems to be a new reverb system based on real locations (much like Allens Convolution Reverb from what I gather).</p>

                      The new reverb certainly comes across as being top notch !!! I can't really judge the sound (of the distinct voices) too well but I would think a DVD or CD could give a much truer representation.</p>

                      I like the looks too. </p>

                        I see the Johannus Symphonica 47 and watched the Youtube video. I wonder how the 47 compares to the 45? It seems to sound fairly good.It's UNDER $30,000?That's low. I have to wonder how well the console is made. It's hard to tell from compressed audio. I wish they (and all other organ companies) would stop using non-organ voices in their demos. I can get whatever I want to add through MIDI. I would be buying an organ for the organ stops, not for the General MIDI sounds. As far as their 4 manual Cavaille-Coll organ: The console is strange looking. It's VERY wide and the terracing doesn't look as neat as the St. Sulpice organ does, for instance. As far as authentic Cavaille-Coll sound? It's okay but no one has come as close as Hautpwerk.</P>

                        Watch the first video, of <FONT color=#247fc3>Peter Bengtson</FONT> (Sweden) playing Louis Vierne - Final from 3rd Symphonie.</P>


                        All I can say is WOW!</P>
