Further to the discussion of available crank organs, the premier maker
of book-operated organs today are those made by LeLudion in Toulouse,
France. For those who want only the very best, the organs made by
Philippe and Eve Crasse are without equal in quality craftsmanship and
tonal purity. Ranging in size from 20 to 48 keys, these organs and the
special arrangements made for them are a show stopper wherever they
appear. And for a special treat, watching Philippe in performance is
to see a true maestro. For the purist, these book-operated organs are
a special treat in this day and age. LeLudion also makes large
fairground organs ranging up to 65 keys and also book-operated.
There will be several organ rallies this year and this is the time to
consider ordering a new organ. It typically takes two to four months
to custom create each organ. I am pleased to be the US agent for these
organs and would be happy to provide further details. Thanks.
