Heathfield School 2012
Heathfield School commissioned a new 2 manual instrument to replace the failing pipe organ in the school chapel. The cost of a new pipe organ was beyond their budget so were looking at and tested various supplier’s digital instruments. They eventually decided on Regent Classic Organs to supply a moving drawstop console manufactured in a light oak and incorporating the latest ‘Physis’ physical modelling organ voice platform. To learn more about this follow the link to the Viscount website for an explanation of Physis Technology.
We installed our Regent Classic Digital Organ in Heathfield School’s marvellous chapel. The instrument was tailored according to the school’s requirements and we matched the design of the instrument to the interior of the chapel.

Our pipe organ that had given many good years service was showing signs of wear and tear and the time had come for us to explore a replacement instrument. The cost of a new pipe organ was beyond our budget so we looked at and tested various supplier's digital instruments.
We decided Regent Classic Organs was our preferred choice. The Viscount organs we heard greatly impressed us with the depth and realism of their sound, and having been shown how easy the software is to maintain and update we were convinced that Viscount was the best company to provide us with a digital organ that would serve our immediate needs, as well as stand the test of time.
Furthermore, the follow up services offered to us by Regent Classic Organs surpassed our expectations. The installation of the new organ, constructed in real oak moving drawstop console proved to be an excellent choice and has been a wonderful addition to the Chapel.
