U. S. Naval Academy - Annapolis, MD

The chancel’s new five-manual console boasts 522 drawknobs, and with other functions available to the organist, yields 796 total controls.

The glorious chancel area of the Academy was the defining model for the console casework. Intricate carvings abound on this, the largest drawknob console in the world. A deeply carved naval dolphin surrounds the inscription honoring the Class of 1951 who so graciously donated the funds for the new console and digital enhancements.

Special attention had to be given to the ergonomic qualities due to the size of this unique creation. A full size model was formed and adjusted on the fly and provided a real world model to verify without a doubt that a comfort level would be reached to provide the organist complete control over the massive instrument. The new console should enhance the wonderful music program of the Academy for decades to come.

See the pipe organ in progress Winter/Spring 2010.
