  • How Deep is the X66 Console?

    Hello all,
    I'm thrilled to announce I actually have a prospect on my dream organ, the X66! However, before I get my hopes up I realized I should check it's dimensions. My C3 fit through the door with 1/4" to spare, but I shouldn't assume the X66 will too. So, how deep is this guy without pedals?

    Also, how does moving one of these differ from a C3? It comes with the proper tone cabinet. I've moved the C3 twice with no problems. Just want to make sure if there's nothing special to watch out for. The biggest thing I'm concerned about is the lack of a cover for the top. When moving my C3, I had just wrapped it in a few heavy blankets and it worked out great.

    Thanks!
    -Jon

    Anyone know? I'm hoping to pick it up soon.

      The brochure rather unhelpfully only gives the depth with pedals attached - 51".

      I'll ask and get back to you.

      Oh, you do know the weight of this one, don't you? 574lbs including pedalboard and bench. The lower part of the organ is solid - iron!

        I've heard of someone sawing the base off with intent to reattach it later. :eek:

        574# minus pedalboard minus bench equals close enough to 500# to be a difficult job!

          Front to back, the X-66 is 29.2", that's actually less than my spinet Kawai SR6 was. So most external doors should be OK. Internal doors in the UK tend to be 29" but maybe yours are bigger in the States?

            30" is pretty common but really they're all over the place. Anything 24" to 36" is common, and sizes down to 18" and up to 42" less common. Houses built in the last 50 years typically have doors between 28" and 36".

              Thank you Andy for the helpful information. My interior door is 29 3/4" so it should be ok. Looks like it's about the same size as my C3 give or take.
