The custom Wyvern concept is to build high quality bespoke organ from a range of suggested specifications that can then be altered to suit individual needs. Stop lists, data and voicing can be altered in the future to incorporate new software samples or reflect changing tastes and needs. The specifications shown are suggested frameworks that we tailor to your requirements. Choose from a wide range of options such as piston layouts, keyboards and stop control to get the exact organ you want.
Detailed analyses of pipe ranks from some of Britain's finest organs provide the basis for our voicing. Every rank of each stop is a separate entity, without borrowing or extension and being independently generated, the individual voices are full of character and remarkably realistic. But it is in the chorus build-up where the Wyvern is so notable, with the richness and grandeur of ensembles characteristic of a fine pipe organ.
Great care is taken to produce elegant and attractive consoles that still retain a traditional appearance. Particular attention has been paid to the detail with a greater emphasis on solid wood capping around areas of potential wear. There is a hinged music desk that is lower and further forward for ease of use and fitted with solid brass music hooks. The roll-top fall is of interlocking slats of solid wood, spindle moulded and fastened with braided steel wire for maximum life. There is a substantial full-length bench with a music compartment beneath and pedalboards are of a heavy-duty construction, with beech pedals to give many years of hard wear.
The high quality keyboards have a crisp top-resistance providing a positive touch for the organist. Heavy-duty key contacts are used to give durable, maintenance free life. Consoles are finished by hand to ensure that these classic instruments look as good as they sound. Everything about a Wyvern is built to last.
