  • Roland C380 vs Rodgers 569 (Help Needed!!)

    Hi Everyone,

    I know an elderly couple looking to buy an organ for a church. They do not know much about organs and the church organist is not very knowledgeable. They live in a country without a lot of dealers, but are looking to get the best bang for their buck (their retirement savings).

    They are being presented with the option of buying a Rodgers 569, but none of us really understand why that would be better than a C380. I would like to get a non-dealer perspective. I would like to save my friends some money if the extra cost does not get them very much.

    Any thoughts?

    The Rodgers is quite a bit more organ in my opinion. It gets them a US-built AGO console with 32 note pedalboard, split expression/crescendo, and more pistons including toe studs.

      Their retirement is otherwise secured?

        Also, someone told me that the Rodgers manuals have a heavier touch than the Roland C330/C380 ones, which in my opinion would make it easier to perform a good articulation for the baroque repertoire.
