Jim Clinch
Managing Director
Jim

Jim started playing electronic organ in the 1970s and became popular playing in his local parish church and local organ clubs.

Since 1985 Jim has helped hundreds of people fulfill their dream of learning to play the organ or acquiring their dream instrument.

He enjoys conducting classes and workshops to help organists get the best from whatever instrument they may play whether at home or in church.

Jim has more than 30 years experience playing and selling a wide range of organs. It is this experience, seeing brands come and go, that has influenced his decision to sell Allen, Content and Ringway organs.
