Holland has a long history in building organs, dating back as early as the fifteenth century. Six Centuries later we still find a thriving organ culture in the Low Countries both in physical development and organ manufacturing as well as performances in the cultural and musical sense. This abundant culture is the very heritage, dedication and foundation of the digital Content Organ from The Netherlands.
Content Organs was established in 1980 by our present director Mr. Bert Foppen. As from the very start the main issues were product development, the use of quality material and a careful, excellent workmanship. This approach proved to be very effective as Content received the prestigious ‘Diapason d’Or’ during a 1987 Trade Fair in Paris, France. Continued success required a move to new premises in the local industrial area of ‘Kerkdennen’ in Ermelo.
At the end of the eighties of the last century, the tone generation system changed from an analog to a digital sound source. This allowed a major increase in features and consequently an expansion in the selection of models available. The application of this revolutionary technology and a creative, inventive approach initiated a new series of organs, like the Mondri Classic that appeared in the market in 2006. This instrument applies a state of the art self developed micro chip and top of the line samples.
Parallel to the increasing activities, the renowned quality leading to the steady growth in units sold, required a new milestone in the history of the company: an all new factory, entirely developed exclusively for the development and production of digital classical organs.
The new and modern plant, meeting up to date requirements was put into operation at the end of 2008 in the newly developed Ermelo industrial area ‘Veldzicht’. Content Organs in this way is prepared and secured for future expansion.

Music is the language of the soul, a universal language that brings down borders and language barriers, building bridges between people of different backgrounds and cultures. Music makes all the difference both when enjoyed in an active or a passive way, adding new dimensions to the life of every day. Active music performing is a means to express feelings and is highly appreciated to control and direct personal emotions. Music has been a rich source of inspiration throughout the ages and adds a dramatic, enriching contribution to this very day.
