Hi,

Can anyone help me please.

In the 1960's The John Compton Organ Company built two and three manual Electrone church organs.

Have you got one of these organs please or know anyone who has. Also any parts.

I am interested in acquiring one of these organs for a growing Compton Electrone collection.


Thank you.

Electronic Organs / Re: Compton "Cantata" organ
« on: September 16, 2012, 11:41:45 AM »
Hi,

Thank you for email.

The Compton Cantata was built around 1967 and was the last model the original company made before closing down.

I personally try and save any Compton Electrone organ from being scrapped, having had the pleasure of working on these fine instruments, many years ago.

It would greatly help if, when you have a spare moment, to remove the rear panel - sorry lots of screws! If you can then email me pictures of the rear of the inner organ, especially the lower part, it will help me determine the version the Compton.

I have a friend who is building up a Compton organ museum and when I have the pictures to hand I will email them to him. Like myself he does not care for Comptons being scrapped.

I hope that I have been some help.

Best wishes,

Compton Electrones / Re: Compton Electrones
« on: May 08, 2012, 09:57:17 PM »
I was rather disturbed by comments that Compton Organs Suffolk have been unhelpful in supplying information on churches using Compton Electrones and general information on Compton Electrone organs.

Firstly, out of courtesy to a church and conducting a business on a professional level, it is important to us to ask the permission from a church, before giving their details to a member of the public. Whilst the Compton Electrones were light years ahead of the competition in the 1950-60's most organists and churches would agree that later technology has seriously put these once fine instruments in the shade, regarding authentic pipe organ tone and practically maintenance free costs. As a result very few churches today still use a Compton Electrone organ. When requested recently for a list of Compton - using churches we were hard pushed to name two! When asked whether we could have their authority to let  someone who has an interest to play these organs to contact them, both declined. We should therefore respect people's opinions on not allowing organ enthusiasts to play their instruments and not just assume it is Political Correctness gone mad.

To suggest that we are worried that it could lose us new business, is rather a banal comment, when you consider an elderly 50-60 year old Compton is hardly in the same category as a new digital organ!

We have people emailing us, sometimes from outside the U.K. asking for information on Compton Electrone organs and we are very pleased to be able to help them. Indeed we have never refused this class of help and being fortunate to possess such specialised material, we feel a deep sense of responsibility to pass on this information.
