Hello davyG,
You say you used Allen keyboards ?
Did you midified it, or did you use the original way of contact (infrared or hall or magnetic ?) ?

I am looking for Allen keyboards to build a Miditzer console... 2 with velocity (ideal : infrared), and 2 with velocity and second-touch !

Sincerly,
ED

Ed please note that this is a very old post and DavyG hasn't checked the Forum in a long time. Hopefully someone else will have some ideas for you.

Yes, they were Allan keyboards with the Allan keying mechanisms attached. I had used 5v.d.c. with Midi box kits. But now I would use IR keying.

I found this based on your recent post about the pipe organ keyboards on eBay.

Unless you have a good reason to want just keyboards, I would suggest looking for a complete electronic organ console. You are unlikely to find them with velocity or 2nd touch. You have to be an advanced organist to make use of those features. If you are able to make use of those features, then you might want to approach your console somewhat differently from the usual approach of MIDIfying an old electronic organ.

Here in the US, quite nice complete electronic organs can be found for very low prices if you are able to pick up the organ and haul it away. I don't know if that is true where you are, but it is possible it is.
