VISCOUNT is proud to introduce A.W.K. – a newly designed ADVANCED WOODEN KEYBOARD specifically designed for organists who demand the highest performance keyboard action. This innovative keyboard design is able to reproduce, down to the minutest details, the authentic touch sensation of the traditional pipe organ keyboard with mechanical transmission. The AWK keyboard has been designed in cooperation with Luca Panetti, who has a long and distinguished career studying physical behavior, design and construction of organ keyboards. The AWK is an exclusive product of VISCOUNT INTERNATIONAL S.p.A.. The action “force”, that simulates the force needed to activate the key and open the air valve of a real pipe organ, is carefully reproduced using two finely-adjusted magnets which match the organists demands perfectly. VISCOUNT has chosen the best wood materials to provide a beautiful aesthetic, optimal tactile feeling and mechanical precision. The entire keyboard is produced in VISCOUNT facilities using highly sophisticated specialized machines to ensure absolute precision of the parts. This is a fundamental requirement to obtain an instrument of the highest quality.
