Do 10-Year Parts Warranties Differ?

0 Comment

YES, I just found out this week that a “10-year parts warranty” CAN DIFFER a GREAT DEAL from one Organ Builder to another. Unfortunately many well-meaning buyers only get to READ the warranty AFTER they have purchased an instrument. Many of them take it for granted that any builders 10-year Parts Warranty is the same from one company to the next. This is NOT true.

  • Here is a copy of the warranty sent to an owner after purchasing a Johannus Organ:
  • Johannus Warranty
  • Here is a copy of the warranty that is offered by Viscount Organs:
  • Viscount Warranty
  • Here is a copy of the warranty that a Rodgers Owner receives after purchasing an organ:
  • Rodgers Warranty

Note that the Rodgers Parts Warranty includes ALL PARTS of the entire organ and that the others covers ONLY the computer boards. These other firms do not cover the console shell, the bench, the finish, the keyboards, the pedals, the expression pedals, the stop controls, the speakers, the amplifiers, etc. Get a copy of the warranty BEFORE you purchase any instrument… we think you will find Rodgers to offer more security and more value.

Note that ALL digital organ builders use parts that are made all around the world. One firm claims that they are a true “organ builder” because they build ALL parts of their organs “in house.” These is NO digital organ builder in the world that builds ALL parts of their instrument in house…. and this is clear proof of that.
