For the Building of Opus & Revelation Instruments
Opus-Compatible Organ Consoles
Marshall & Ogletree Opus Organs include consoles custom-built to the very highest standards of physical quality in the organ industry, and are created using the finest materials and components which can be identified, regardless of cost. As a result, the most expensive single component of a bespoke M&O Opus Organ is its glorious console.
From time to time, however, we are pleased to take in an interesting and superior-quality pipe organ console, usually in trade from an Opus customer. It is possible to completely rebuild and refinish these consoles from top to bottom, creating professionally restored and customized consoles

for M&O Opus Organs. When rebuilt, these consoles will include our proprietary M&O ForeSight™ organ control system, our proprietary M&O Alternate Stops™ with divisional displays, digital hall-effect key contacts with velocity-sensing MIDI output and all of the other features and capabilities which our bespoke Opus Organ consoles have become famous for.
This presents an exciting opportunity for customers to be able to select from a group of superior quality pre-owned consoles as the starting point for their new Marshall & Ogletree Opus Organ. As added benefits, they can be made ready for installation more quickly than scratch-built consoles can, and at considerable cost savings as well.
If you think that one of these beautiful and distinguished consoles might be applicable to your situation, please don't hesitate to reach out to us to explore the idea. We'd be happy to work with you to build an amazing M&O Opus organ for your home or institution.

Revelation-Compatible Organ Consoles
Revelation-compatible consoles from Marshall & Ogletree are available on a first-come, first-served basis. These instruments are offered with Revelation Systems in mind, although most are also capable of serving as stand-alone (non-M&O) digital organs for customers on a more limited budget.
These instruments are completely gone through from top-to-bottom, inside-and-out to be sure that they are in perfect operational condition and that they will last for decades into the future. Components which commonly experience wear over time are replaced, such as speaker drivers, power supply capacitors, pedal and keyboard felt and foam bumpers, light bulbs, etc. Wood furniture is refinished and touched up as necessary for the instrument to look factory-fresh. If the instrument is to be used

as a Revelation System controller, stops, pistons and tablets may be re-engraved to reflect customization of the organ's stop list. Then the instrument is coupled with its Revelation System and carefully tested for proper operation in-house prior to delivery, installation and voicing.
