The Schoenstein System

Beautiful tone musically expressed is our goal. An organ pipe can produce a sublime sound, but it cannot be fully realized musically unless it is under the precise, minute and flexible control of the organist.

What has held the organ back in expressiveness as compared with most other musical media is its mechanism. We have invested heavily to improve each part of the organ mechanism so that the organist can bring out every aspect of tonal color with ease. All of these mechanical features working together are what we call—The Schoenstein System.

Building an organ in the Schoenstein System is expensive, but the results gained in musical versatility make its application a practical value.

The Schoenstein System has many parts which are discussed in the articles referenced in that section of our web site, but two key elements are highlighted in the two adjacent tabs: Expansion Cell and Double Expression.
