Here, we see the console of this majestic instrument. This is one of only a few Page Theatre Pipe Organs remaining in the entire world. The three manual Grande Page Theatre Pipe Organs were very rare, and this one is in nearly perfect condition. It has been modernized to include a solid state relay and MIDI control for a Yamaha Studio Acoustic Piano equipped with a Yamaha Disclavier Module and other outboard MIDI gear.
