When the Southside Baptist Church in Pine Bluff, Arkansas USA ordered their Rembrandt 3000 AGO in 2001 they went all out and ordered every option available from best wooden keys, and adjustable height bench with a back rest, to every speaker the console was capable of on main I and Main 2, and the church included full antiphonal speakers as well. For my 68th Birthday in July 2020, I acquired the console after the entire organ was professionally uninstalled. All of the speakers were sold by the uninstalling technician to another church. I use either Sony headphones or PreSonus nearfield monitors in my garden apartment. The organ in in like new condition and fully functional. Hands down it's the best organ I have ever owned out of 1 Allen, and 3 Rodgers. The technology at the time was 2001: T9700 digital 20-bit converter, I2C technology just before Johannus went to 24 bits and 4 selectable multipipe organ sample sets. I wanted to write this review for those church organists, that like me, cannot afford a top-of-the-line big church organ for use at their home. In the USA Allen has long had the lion's share of the marketplace due to their heavy marketing and their going digital before other manufacturers. As a result, the European digital organ makers are not well known in the USA. That is a pity, but this older Johannus I have now is hands down equal to the latest Allen's in construction quality, sound and playability. I have my Rembrandt 3000 fully replacement cost insured. If anything happen to it I will replace it with a new current comparable Johannus not that I have experienced first hand the quality of the 21-year-old organ I now have. I cannot recommend Johannus highly enough and I have been an organist for 58 of my 68 years of life. I will play a Johannus for the remainder of my life, Thank you Johannus for making fantastic high quality products! Steven Joel Speirs

My church has purchased a Monarke organ two years ago and I am so pleased beyond words. I have only liked playing on an authentic pipe organ but ours was beyond repair and the cost was astronomical. A friend of mine introduced me to Johannus a few years ago and I played on the Opus and simply fell in love so when my church was in the market for a new organ I only wanted a Johannus. We purchased the Monarke and I have never been happier. The sound is astounding and the solo stops are so pleasing to hear. The authenticity sound of this organ to a pipe organ is remarkable. When other organists ask my advice on purchasing a new organ I immediately say Johannus. Thank you for building a truly beautiful sounding organ.

The year was 1944 and I started piano lessons with the nuns. In 1947 my teacher introduced me to the big 3 manual pipe organ. From then on I knew that some day I would own a big organ. I started with a Hammond spinet and worked my way up with several brands. The only dealer left in downtown minneapolis sold Allens. One day I walked into their store and heard an organ that sounded nothing like an Allen. I walked into the showroom and there sat my friend Gerrit Lamain playing a 3 manual digital organ. It was a Johannus made specifially for Schmitt Music, the name of the store. I bought that organ along with a clavinova and few months later traded both of those instruments for the Johannus Rembrandt R3000 with 8 speakers. This was in my living room of my condo. A few years later I had a stroke and couldn't play too well, so I sent the organ to a friend in the state of washington. If i was able to purchase another organ it would be a Vivaldi 370-self-contained. When I win the lottery I'll call gerrit and order one.
