In 1954 the SCHOBER Organ Company was formed in New York by C.G. Mc Proud, Henry Schober and Richard H. Dorf, who were working at a music magazine. They decided to use the name "Schober", because it appeared most organ like to most people.
Schober speciallized exclusively in self-build kits for electronic organs.
After moving several times, SCHOBER moved in 1960 to its last rooms near to the Lincoln Center for Performing Arts in New York.
SCHOBER disappered from the market somewhere in the seventies.
If you are interested in SCHOBER, or if you want to talk to people, who owns a SCHOBER, take a look at the Schober Organ Orphans pages!
Schober offered the following models as self-build kits. They were available in different extension steps:
Additional equippment and tools were available for all organs: Percussion group, Mixer Compressor, Combination action (an electro electropneumatic preset group), Dynamaster, Dynabeat, Leslie Organ Speakers (rotary speakers) and the tape echo unit Reverbatape Unit.
