    How much would it take to make this viable for a MIDI organ? (Besides pedals of course)</p>

      Jon,</p>

      I'm not sure I would consider the Schober console a good candidate for going the MIDI route. Besides getting a console shell, pedalboard, and bench really not much can be used. All the keyboard switches would need to go, keyboards would be garbage by now, stop rail useless, and retro-fitting the pedalboard is a hassle.</p>

      I would suggest that you be on the lookout for an old Allen console (old MOS 1 or 2 or even TC series), Rodgers organs from the 60s or 70s. These can now be gotten rather cheap.</p>

      Better yet, a late model analog Rodgers, as they already have some MIDI implementation on them.</p>

      Most other old stuff, is just not worth the effort of working on, as the quality of the mechanics of the console was questionable.</p>

      Just my thoughts..............</p>
