About Us

Amro Music Store has proudly provided Allen Organs to individuals and Houses of Worship in Memphis and the Mid-South for over fifty years. Our combined sales and technical support make us leaders in the region in creating solutions for your worship and musical needs.

The Organ Selection Process

In the era of online shopping, free 2-day shipping, and instant access, we want to acknowledge that the purchase of an organ for your home or church is a different type of transaction. The decision of, "Which organ is right for us?" is one that will affect the church for the next forty or fifty years, at least. We are honored to play a role in this important time for your church or your family. The selection process involves meeting with you at your church to evaluate the space, learn about your worship and musical styles, and meeting with other key individuals interested in the organ.

Amro Music, founded in 1921, and Allen Organ, founded in 1937, collectively have almost 200 years experience in working with churches and church musicians. Our histories show our understanding of the importance of good stewardship. We encourage you to keep a long-term mindset in mind when evaluating all the options available to you in the church and home organ market.

The Allen Advantage

Construction Quality

Every Allen Organ is a hand-built masterpiece. Using solid lumber, quality furniture construction methods, and computer design, each instrument is built to last a lifetime right here in the United States using American-sourced materials. Skilled craftsmen shape these beautiful instruments to exacting standards using a combination of computerized design and old-world woodworking skills.

Allen Organ owns its own electronics and component manufacturing facility, housed on-site at the Allen Organ factory in Macungie, PA. Even the metal cages which house components inside the organs are manufactured right in the Allen factory. This commitment to quality ensures that each component in the organ is designed and built to withstand the test of time.

Proven History

Professional organists and those who appreciate the quality difference prefer Allen Organs. There are over 70,000 Allen Organ installations, worldwide, on all seven continents. Locally, Amro Music (and formerly, the Keyboard Place, which merged with Amro Music), have installed hundreds of Allen Organs over the last forty years in Memphis and the Mid-South. Notable installations include several large hybrid organs (digital console, speakers, and true organ pipes) in West Memphis, AR and Tupelo, MS, and the world’s largest Allen Organ, the five manual custom Allen at Bellevue Baptist Church here in Memphis.

Allen Organs are proven workhorses for smaller churches, also. There are literally hundreds of new and experienced Allen Organs that fit the needs of 50-, 75-, and 100-member congregations throughout the Mid-South. Whatever the size of your church, there is an Allen that will inspire your musical worship and bring joy to the congregation.

Unique Features

Each Allen Organ can be outfitted with an array of advanced capabilities, including MIDI capabilities, Allen’s Vista Navigator, GeniSys voices, and many other options. Every Allen comes standard with voicing controls that allow us to adjust the organ’s balance based on the needs of your sanctuary or home space. Drawing on five hundred years of proven methodology, this is a unique feature that no other competitor can match – the ability to voice the organ just as a pipe organ builder would.

In addition, many Allen Organs can be outfitted with multiple stop lists, organ suites captured from organs around the world, and the ability to control other keyboards, making the organ relevant for contemporary worship settings. In short, every Allen has the versatility needed to meet the demands and expectations of today’s musicians and their varied musical programs.

Dependability and Service

Allen Organs are the world’s most reliable organs. And, because Allen maintains its own components manufacturing facilities and over $4 million in parts inventory, Amro Music has access to parts for any Allen Organ ever built. This ensures that in forty years, we and Allen Organ will be able to provide service for the organ you install today.

Installation and Voicing of Your Organ

The selection of your organ is one that can be an incredibly complex and thorough process. However, a poor installation or lack of voicing can prevent you from hearing all the color, nuance, and expression of the organ. For this reason, we will discuss speaker placement options early in the discussion when selecting a console. On delivery day, we will experiment with various positions and directions for the speakers to provide the most authentic pipe sound for the congregation.

Depending on the location of the console relative to the speakers, we may need to "fish" speaker wire through an attic, under the floor, or through pre-installed wire runs. If your church is considering a newly constructed or renovated sanctuary, it's important to work with us and the architects/engineers on designed speaker chambers, cable routing, and electrical needs. 

Once everything is in place, we'll spend several hours listening to the organ in various solo and ensemble registrations, making adjustments to individual note or voice volumes and color. This process is known as voicing the organ. In a true pipe organ, the pipe organ builder will physically make adjustments to the pipes to alter the articulation or volume and tuning of the pipe. Allen Organs stand out in that we can truly replicate this process in the digital console, unlike any other manufacturer. This voicing process is one of the most critical steps! A very expensive organ voiced incorrectly can be less satisfying than a more economical option that has been voiced appropriately for the environment.

Competitive Comparison

Construction

Allen Organs are built at the Allen factory in Macungie, PA, about an hour outside of Philadelphia. As of 2017, no other major digital organ company continues to build organs in the United States except for Allen.

 

Rather than using particle board and angle brackets, Allen Organ consoles are assembled using proven woodworking techniques, such as wood on wood doweled-construction and superior structural design.

The factory also houses Allen Integrated Assemblies, where digital components are manufactured. Allen Organ Company is so committed to the quality of manufacturing that they produce every component internally, down to the individual circuit boards and cages within the organ. 

See the difference for yourself. Stop by our showroom and we'll be glad to walk you through the construction of an Allen Organ. Take a look at another company's organ, below.

Features of Allen Organs

Note by Note/Individual Stop Voicing Controls - No other digital organ manufacturer allows complete flexibility with voicing like Allen does. This allows us to match the organ to the environment in which it is placed.

Expanded Audio - Every Chancel or Bravura organ can be configured to work with expanded and even interlaced audio.  By splitting the C and C# into separate speakers, true pipe acoustics can be recreated in your space. Interlaced audio takes it to the next level, by eliminating phase disruption for specific harmonies sounding through the same speakers.

GeniSys Voices - Now you can add warm, rich symphonic sounds and additional organ stops to your Allen Organ with GeniSys Voices. GeniSys Voices is the next evolution in MIDI technology for the organ and adds these voices to each manual as traditional stops, allowing you to use them like any other sound in the organ.

Thoughtful and Customizable Stop Lists - Historique and Chancel organs draw on 500 years of organ builders' experiences. The stoplists they feature showcase the most common and desirable registrations from classic organs around the world. Bravura organs also share these thoughtful stoplists, and clients can customize and/or add any stops they desire.

Allen Organs stand out as organists' favorite digital organ and have proven their lasting quality. We would be honored to walk through the organ selection process with you. If you'd like more information, please fill out the form below and we'll be glad to contact you as soon as possible.
