Whether you are having a new instrument built, looking to expand your current instrument, or looking for a new control unit for your current instrument, it is important to take a moment to mention our consoles. Our consoles are one of the many features of a Schlueter pipe organ that sets it apart from any other.

The A. E. Schlueter Pipe Organ Company builds its consoles of the finest materials and all consoles are built to conform to American Guild of Organists (AGO) standards. Prior to construction of any console, we submit the design with interior drawknobs/tablets, couplers, pistons, and other controls for client approval. Our consoles include features such as:

� Time honored mortise and tenon frame construction for strength
