BENNETT & GIUTTARI CONTINUO

Started in 1995 - and after completion of 57 instruments,  we are retiring the design of this organ and will not longer take orders.   We’ve had a fabulous time with these instruments and would be delighted to see any of them back in the shop for rebuild.

This mechanical action continuo organ is based on the kisten organs of the 17th century (Manderscheit, Nuremberg), with all pipework in wood. Panels on the side (fretwork) and top of the instrument control the egress of sound. The sticker action/ palletbox lies directly beneath the keydesk, giving very precise control of pipe speech. A single-fold wedge reservoir gives gently flexible wind. The instrument's voicing is ideal for continuo and chamber ensemble settings.
