Our History

Established in 1948 as The Beautiful Sound, Allen Organs of Chicago is the oldest keyboard firm in Chicago. Today, the company exclusively represents the Allen Organ Company and the Hammond Organ Company throughout Northern Illinois and Northwest and Central Indiana. Recognition has been earned as the premier organ company in Chicago by sales of the world’s finest keyboard products, outstanding customer service and unparalleled relationships in the fine arts music field. In 2013, the company was purchased by Lee Maloney, who had been the Director of Institutional Sales with the previous company for nearly 20 years.

Allen Organs of Chicago has provided instruments for the most distinctive locations in Chicago including The Chicago Symphony, The Art Institute of Chicago, Northwestern University, United Center, and Ravinia Festival, to name just a few. More than 5000 organs have been installed by the company including churches and synagogues of every size. Complimentary service and consultation is readily available to interior designers and church architects.

The company services all Allen and Hammond organs as well as numerous pipe organs in the Illinois and Indiana area. We offer complete pipe organ restoration, with or without digital augmentation, tuning, voicing, and all other facets of both pipe and digital organs.

Relocated in 2015 to our new facility in Bolingbrook, Illinois, the showroom is a 3,200 square foot facility which includes the showroom/recital room, concert and artist services, warehousing, two teaching studios, service department and corporate offices.

The showroom attractively displays an inventory of 25 new and used Allen and Hammond organs, Hammond keyboards and other used pianos and keyboards.

The company has received numerous recognition awards including the Allen Organ Company Ambassador Award and Custom Organ Award, appreciation awards from the American Theatre Organ Society and local chapters of the American Guild of Organists as well as numerous awards for Customer Service and Instrument Repair Excellence.
