Organ nb49 | First transportable organ by Gideon Shamir

Gideon Shamir decided in 1994 to construct a portable concert/accompaniment organ. This idea came to him following a great number of requests for a concert hall organ coming from symphonic orchestras and different performance groups (no organ in a hall existed at that time except the Austin at the YMCA.)
Shamir thus made a two-manual organ with a completely detachable pedal (the second manual is silent ) This organ can be transported by truck by a team of 2 to 3 people, but it still needs an organ-building specialist on site to assure that all the pieces are properly connected and the instrument is in tune.
