Opus 162 is a continuo organ in a private residence in Dallas, Texas. It is designed to sit within a chamber orchestra and accompany ensembles large or small. With several half-compass stops, it enables the organist to perform a wide variety of solo literature as well.
The decorations have a matching inner layer that can be slid sideways to close the openings in the pipe shades to reduce the brightness and help fit the instrument to a smaller space or ensemble.
The keyboard has boxwood-covered naturals and rosewood sharps. The casework is quarter-sawn white oak, with walnut in the console. The façade pipes are made from curly soft maple. The keyboard transposes between A=440 and A=415.
This instrument is tuned in quarter-comma meantone at A=415.
