Features and Description

Rodgers Artist organs are built on an all-new state-of-the-art technology platform that delivers rich capabilities and value.  An expanded tonal palette provides the versatility to support all styles of worship and concert music.  From classical organ repertoire to contemporary praise and gospel music, Rodgers Artist is a modern organ with the flexibility to easily achieve traditional and orchestral sounds.  Each Artist organ comes with the Power Player’s Guide for Rodgers and Roland Organs, written by Church Keyboard Center President Nelson Dodge, that explains how to fully exploit the power of the Artist organs.  Rodgers Artist organs are fully pipe compatible--an Artist pipe+digital hybrid organ is a cost-effective solution for smaller pipe organs with an aging or failing console.
