The Built-In Celesta
Expand the queen of instruments with a unique effect register. A special built-in instrument was developed by Schiedmayer to fill not only large concert halls and opera houses, but also the churches of the world with the unique sound of the celesta. Above all, organ concepts with a late romantic emphasis and corresponding disposition or register composition can benefit from this.
The sacred mood of the organ combines with the “heavenly” sound of the celesta to create an unparalleled sound experience. As an effect register, the built-in Celesta can be used, for example, to set highlights in a wide variety of works, as a kind of “sound spice” to provide additional background with spherical sounds or to develop its radiance in improvisations.
Celesta or Glockenspiel
Because the Built-In Celesta is played at the same pitch as the other stops, it offers unlimited possibilities for combination. Another special feature of the Built-In Celesta is its complete flexibility in layout.
Alternatively, Schiedmayer also offers a Built-In Glockenspiel for church organs. The Instruments only differ in sound – while the built-in celesta is distinguished by its characteristic warm and soft tones, the built-in glockenspiel offers a sound spectrum richer in overtones with a more concise touch.
