    In the US, too.

    There was a one manual, mechanical action organ at church camp. But it had a pedalboard.

    Can't learn much of the repertoire on anything without a pedalboard. Now if I could add pedals to my Estonia 190...

    Good point, Mark!

    I played a concert on a one-manual tracker instrument some years ago. It was quite a challenge to be inventive with only a few stops to choose from (which split the keyboard). I used it as an excuse to play Bach's "Little" Fugue in G Minor, Pachelbel's Toccata in E Minor, and others like that. Granted, they weren't especially meaty pieces, but the audience enjoyed them anyway.

    With no pedals, there are plenty of manuals-only pieces, but I'd shy away from any that require pedals (my feet won't go that high!).

    Way too many organs to list, but I do have 4 Allens:
    • MOS-2 Model 505-B / ADC-4300-DK / ADC-5400 / ADC-6000 (Symphony)
    • Lowrey Heritage (DSO-1)
    • 9 Pump Organs, 1 Pipe Organ & 4 Pianos

    I have been wanting something like this myself. My portable setup for outdoor services is somewhat bulky requiring two benches, one for me and one for the laptop. I like the idea of having the sound generation internal. Was searching in vain for a Viscount Cantorum but this looks like it might work as well.
