    Hi, all. Sharyn, unfortunately I do not have any answers for you, as I am coming to this thread with my own question... I was wondering if this console (for sale near me) is a Rogers Trio, or a different model. Also wondered if this is an AGO pedal board or the slightly smaller one.

    Thanks!

    That appears to be an original Trio (320/322) but modified with a non-Rodgers Rhythm unit. All the Trio models used a sub-AGO pedalboard--slightly less concavity, slightly narrower, and slightly shorter than AGO.

    Thanks, toodles. I bet the subtle difference wouldn't matter to my current level of pedal ability, but I have to set some guidelines to keep myself from buying every cheap console that looks cool... I'll be passing on this one, then.

    FYI these early Rodgers organs including the Trios had excellent Herburgger-Brooks English wooden core keyboards that are very nice to play.

    No MIDI, correct? And it wouldn't be possible to somehow adapt an AGO pedal clavier to control this console, right?

    Right on both counts. The only analog Rodgers Theatre organs with any possibility of factory designed MIDI would be the Asilomar 780, a classical/theatre hybrid 2-manual organ with LED stop tabs and, perhaps, the 3-manual Paramount 880. But 880's are extremely rare and I don't know if Rodgers would have offered a MIDI retro-fit kit on it or not. I do know they offered one for the 780.

    Since nearly all non-AGO pedalboards are narrower than AGO, nearly all consoles with non-AGO can't be adapted to AGO without rebuilding the console to some extent.

    Allen now offers a parallel, concave 32 note pedalboard which puts the playing end of the sharps very close to the same position as AGO. Such a design could be done for Rodgers Trio's as well, but it would be do-it-yourself.
