  • Moller Artiste

    FYI- I just posted a really nice small 5rk Moller Artiste organ in the classifieds section. Located in NJ. Would make a great residence practice organ. Check out the classifieds if you are interested. Lots of pictures and some videos as well.

    Some of the Moller Artiste organs actually make very good instrument for chapels and small parish churches too. There is a church here in Sydney which has one, and it is a marvellous little instrument that sounds much bigger than it is.

      One church in town here in small-town Waterville, WA has a three rank Moller Artiste. It is the most unified little bugger I have ever run across, who knew they could get so much out of three incomplete ranks! The main rank is the Gedeckt, it is the only rank that covers the entire keyboard at the 8ft level. The Diapason and the Salicional don't cover the first octave. It lacks a reed, but the diapason 4ft serves the purpose of a solo stop quite well (it is much louder than everything else on the organ).
      Of course, the organ you have listed has five ranks and I doubt it has this problem.
      Like Hartleymartin said, they make good practice instruments, but work great for small churches as well.
      My instruments:
      Home: A late 50's to early 60's Conn 720 (tube powered, of course)
      One reed organ; in pieces at the moment pending a helping hand to do some gluing.
      Two pianos (upright grand and a spinet) and an accordion (Hohner)
      Church:
      Hammond A-105 with Leslie speakers
      1979 Allen 123-C (MOS1) digital computer organ

        wanted one but being able to control volume is more important to me.:-)

          You can control the volume. Thats what the expression shutters are for.

            Goodness!! Now I'm sad. I had been told that Artists weren't under expression. Well, it's too late now....no room.

              My main gripe with their design is the fact that they look like a big ugly box. This is much improved with a few non-speaking pipes for a facade:

              A big, not-very-pretty wooden box:

                This instrument is at the catholic church in town. 3 ranks of unified wonder. 4-stage expression.
                It can't do all that much, but it does the job. It is perfect for the size of the church.
                The gold painted wood pipes really lack something, I think I'd rather just have a box.
