  • Allen Digital Organ 603

    We have an Allen Digital Organ 603 series that has very little usage we are trying to sell with the Amp and speakers. Any suggestions or interested parties? we are trying to replace it with a Hammond B3.

    I have a question for the Allen knowledge base around here; I have seen these Allen's for years with this giant rectangular box with those little eyeballs sitting on top of the console. What is it for, and what does it do? I would think it would be a bother for the organist, and their line of site. How could it be practical to use for anything, would the music rack not sit in front of this box, blocking the musician's view of the box if it truly displayed valuable information?

      That box is the bottom of the music desk. The "eyeballs" are holes to let the light in the music desk shine on the manuals. It rotates up out of the console to let the roll-top slide past.

    Vfcwc, where is the organ located? The organ and speakers will probably fetch around $1000 which is not enough to cover a B3. Some information on what works and what doesn't would also help.

      I'm pretty sure that at least one thing that does not work is that HC12 cabinet. It looks like the foam is completely gone. And it may not be a 603 - it only has two expression pedals, not three.

    That is some sort of music desk! It must work for some of those old giant 3 ring binders of music. :)

    That's the classic Allen fold-back music desk found all the way back to some custom analog consoles up to the larger MDS models. It has probably been revised a bit for the current models, possibly slimmed down a bit. But it was very useful, as the desk sat lower down than the fixed desk found on many other consoles, more in line with one's eyes when seated on the bench.

      The benefit of this music rack is mitigated by the fact that when a taller person uses this music rack (mounted lower), sometimes the couplers and controls above the top manual cannot be seen (not that I'm that tall).

      That's true, Michael. I wish all Allens had adjustable music desks. I played on a Makin organ this week with a desk that went up and down by 3 or 4 inches, and could be moved 2 or 3 inches closer or farther away with ease. I want one of those!
