Derwent 4-68D

As with all our instruments, the Derwent was designed, specified and voiced in close collaboration with Professor Ian Tracey (Liverpool Cathedral). It is the ultimate four manual motorised drawstop English instrument.

Derwent 4-68D

This instrument has a generous set of twenty-one amplifiers and speakers (16.3 configuration) for its sixty eight speaking stops delivering a wonderful English sound of the organ in all its glory. It’s what dreams are made of.

Derwent 4-68D

Expect nothing but the best with advanced features that come as standard on any Makin organ.

Sound and Amplification
The combination of a single English intonation, using real-time live MultiSamples with one sample for each note of every stop, nineteen channels of amplification (16.3) and twenty-one external speakers we bring the unsurpassed realism of the true pipe organ sound to you.

Our consoles are made from slow grown real oak and real oak veneer and are available in many colours. They feature sixty-one note high quality tracker touch acrylic based keyboards (with wood core keyboards optional) and a full size thirty-two note AGO pedal board with all pedals made from solid wood. Our swell pedals are user definable. Our sturdy organ benches can come complete with music storage space or can be height adjustable. The finishing touch is that our music desks have brass clips to hold your sheet music copy in place.

Pistons & Toe Studs
The organ comes with a full set of traditional English divisional and general pistons and toe studs with two hundred and fifty piston memory. In addition, there is a thumb piston for each interdivisional coupler. All of our organs come with the Great and Pedal Combinations Coupled' function which many English organists regard as indispensable.

Other Functions
Our easy-to-read screen displays vital information, such as the position of the swell pedal and piston memory position. There is a simple menu system to alter volume, select temperaments, adjust tuning, transposition, reverberation and other functions. MIDI, auxiliary in/out sockets and headphone jack are all provided.

Finally all of our organs come with a manual bass function which adds the pedal notes to help pianists and reluctant organists accompany hymns more successfully.
