Overhead organ music lamp
See Gallery for more pictures
Whether you have a pipe organ, or an electonic or digital organ, the elegant Ektralamp overhead organ lamps will help you see your music more clearly with less eye strain. The glare-free lamps shine light evenly on your music - not in your eyes, nor in the eyes of choir or congregation.
The slim low-profile music lights are almost invisible yet provide pleasant and even illumination across the width of your music desk. Forty-five recessed LEDs let you spread out and see multiple pages of music with uniform lighting and no highlights or dark spots. The lamps use little power, never get hot, and have a lifetime expectancy of 50,000 hours of use.
The standard lamp has a 30" wide brass light tube supported by two brass legs attached to a hardwood base. The solid brass has a satin finish coated with a protection against smudges and corrosion. You can rotate the light tube to focus the light on your music thus eliminating glare in your eyes or the eyes of the choir or congregation..
While our standard lamp is free-standing with a hardwood base, we also make lamps with legs that permanently attach to the console lid, and lamps that mount on vertical organ cases which are often used in tracker organs.
Special configurations and finishes (such as black and aluminum) are available on request. Call Will at 440-871-0976 to discuss your special needs or to order by phone.
Why Overhead Music Lamps?
Many organ consoles are equipped with lamps attached to or built into the music rest at the bottom of the rack.. While these lights provide illumination, they tend to shadow, glare, and leave the top of the music score with insufficient light..
A properly placed overhead Ektralamp illuminates the entire height and width of the score evenly with no glare or shadow. If you already have a bottom-mounted light, the Ektralamp overhead lamp will nicely supplement its lighting. If you don't have a bottom-mounted light, the Ektralamp will produce all the light you need. Why play in the dark any longer?
Standard base colors
The organ music lamp bases are all made of solid hardwood - cherry, red oak, and walnut being the standards. Contact us if you need other species. Normally the lamps are shipped with red oak bases stained in a light, medium, or dark color. If your console is made of cherry or walnut you may want to choose the appropriate woood. Our goal is to provide a base that is compatible with your organ console. Should you require an exact match, you will need to supply us with a sample. Note that we do need to charge an additional $50 to match a base to your sample.
Species and colors are: Cherry, Oak-dark, Oak-medium, Oak-light, Walnut

In addtion to the overhead music lamp, we also offer the following accessories for your organ lighting needs.
Organ pedal lamp
Ektralamp pedal lamps evenly illuminate the entire pedal board, toe studs, and swell/crescendo pedals. The pedal lamp is 30" wide and is available in solid brass or aluminum. The lamp attaches to the structure under the lowest manual keyboard with a bracket on each side of the lamp. As with the organ music lamp, the pedal lamp rotates to shine the light exactly where you need it. A switch is mounted to the bottom left side of the lamp, although many organists do like to have the lamp wired such that it comes on with the organ. A six volt power adapter is included.
To order your pedal lamp on-line proceed to the store. The price is $325 for the brass lamp, and $310 for the aluminum lamp, plus shipping.
Organ coupler lamp
The Ektralamp coupler lamp illuminates stops or couplers located above the keyboards and lights the top keyboard. The flexible mounting brackets allow the lamp to be mounted to the stop board, under an extension of the organ lid, or the back of the music lamp as needed. The coupler lamp does not include a switch so the included six volt power adapter should be plugged into an outlet that is powered when the organ is turned on.. The lamps are availble in 20" or 30" lengths. They are made of aluminum with a translucent lens to soften the light.
To order your coupler lamp on-line proceed to the store. The price is $225 for the 20" lamp, and $275 for the 30" lamp, plus shipping.
Organ music lamp dimmer
The Ektralamp "Silent Night" dimmer allows the you to control the intensity of the overhead music lamp when playing services, such as a Christmas eve service, where the sanctuary lamps are dimmed or extinguished. The light intensity can be varied from full on to very dim or totally off. The dimmer is wired between the power adapter and the lamp, and can be placed at a convenient location, such as on a side jamb next to the keyboards.
We can also provide a dimmer with a mounting bracket to secure the dimmer behind a panel with just a shaft and knob projecting in front of the panel.This dimmer may require installation by your organ technician.
To order your dimmer on-line proceed to the store. The price is $49.95 plus shipping.
Organ lighting controller
Note: THIS MODULE REQUIRES PROFESSIONAL INSTALLATION.
The Ektralamp organ control module provides precise illumination control for consoles equipped with multiple Ektralamp lights. All the lamps receive their power from the organ lighting controller which, in turn, is connected to the organ's internal 12VDC (nominal) power supply. The intensity of each lamp can be individually adjusted upon installation. All the lamps can be simultaneously dimmed by the organist with an included panel-mounted dimmer. For more information contact Will at Ektralamp LLC, at 440-871-0976.
To order the control module on-line proceed to the store. The price is $175 plus shipping.
Each Ektralamp light is hand crafted, for optimum quality, in our Cleveland, Ohio, shop. As every lamp is custom-made-to-order, we can easily accomodate special needs and requests - often at no additional cost.
