Our vision

In the beginning there was sound! When practice instruments have an open front, interference is frequently caused by the pipe lips being exactly at head height. This becomes particularly noticeable - and disagreeable - when the practice is of long duration. Our Klang3 plan is restrained with respect to volume, but the timbre and precision are amazingly manifest, creating pleasure for both organist and listener, especially during long periods of practice. We produce this with an enclosed division by combining a sound ceiling that facilitates the emission of indirect sound.

Then came aesthetics! We automatically connect organs with church interiors and concert halls, and beautiful valuable pipes in the front of the organ. However, since Klang3 deliberately does without visible pipes, the design of the case requires particularly careful attention. This organ wants to brighten up the space in which it stands, and to be part of daily life. It wants to be present when children play, and is delighted when inquisitive guests wish to try it out.

Our solution is a type of construction which protects the sensitive pipes by their sturdy case. The design allows for the optics to be configured with various colours and types of wood, according to the space. It is therefore not just through sound, but also visually, that the organ makes a valuable contribution.
