Do organ builders understand that organists need good lighting?

I received a call this week from an organist who commented that an organ builder charged the church several hundred thousand dollars for a magnificent new pipe organ but did not consider that the organist needs to be able to see the music on the rack. This echoes the sentiment I’ve heard from so many organists that are so thankful that they have found us and our overhead music lighting products.

I’ve had a sense that many organ builders are so vain about their designs that they don’t want the interference of overhead lighting or lights supplied by a third party. That is a shame.

I’m delighted to say, however, that a number of companies are have incorporated our lights into their organ consoles. These companies include:

Holtkamp
Schantz
Kegg
Berghaus
Goulding and Wood
Lewtak
Randall Dyer and Associates
Schoenstein

Several Rogers and Allen organ dealers, and many organ service companies, are now also providing or recommending the Ektralamp organ music lights to their customers.

Let there be light!
