    Hi,</p>

    There are certainly more than Rodgers and Allen.</p>

    Others are, Johannus (who makes Makin as well), Viscount, Ahlborn, Phoenix, Eminent, Content, Copeman-Hart, Walker, Marshall &amp; Ogletree, Van der Poel.
    </p>

    There are a couple of other names, but I don't know what they do, such as Wyvern, Aria</p>

    Sorry anyone, if I missed your favorite organ builder.</p>

        Hi,</p>

        Hauptwerk is an organ platform, not an organbuilding firm.</p>

        I believe that commercial licensing may be in the works, but so far it is meant for hobbyists.</p>

          This HW organ built within the last month, is the first off the line for Phoenix:

          Wow!! Does this look like the pipe organ console of the future?? [:|]
          </p>

          I don't know if the voices are soft or hardwired, but to the best of my knowledge, this instrument, out of the box, comes with a full set of Phoenix voice samples; which would probably mean English Romantic, French 'stuff'; 'Baroque'; and perhaps Orchestral.</p>

          I don't know whether Phoenix II HW organs are intended to be a limited economical version of their usual fare; or whether it is set up to accomodate other HW offerings; but since all Phoenix organs are built to customer specs, I would presume that the purchaser of a HW system can specify whatever they wish.</p>

          Taking a look at the high end build of this instrument, and it's high end cherry console, I suspect that the intent and design of this organ had little to do with saving a few bucks. [;)]

            To my knowledge, Wyvern organs are pretty much limited to Great Britain. Most of their organs are merely re-badged Content Organs. For their very high end custom stuff, they use the Phoenix system. [:D]

                Don't forget the pipe organ builders such as Willis, Mander, Harrison &amp; Harrison etc etc.

                    I have a list of over 150 companies in just the United States and Canada that make church organs - most are pipe organs, but a few are digital electronic organs. Email me at [email protected] and I'll send you a list of company names.</p>

                    Organ building is still a strong industry.</p>

                      To clarify, this actually is <u>not</u> a "HW" organ at all, and is not Phoenix samples loaded into HW. It does not use HW unless the customer actually specifically requests it to be installed, and provides a licensed copy of HW. This is a "Phoenix II" Organ and is in no way related to HW. It comes loaded with Phoenix samples only (except as per above). </p>

                      This 3-manual workstation version comes with a 52 stop American Classic organ and a 39 stop German Baroque organ. The audio system is 2.1 (500-watts total) or 2.2 but if needed or if desired can be 6 or more channels. The new Phoenix II will be offered in several console designs with touch screen stop control.</p>
