Since I am preparing a series of videos called “How to choose a portative organ?”, I thought it is a good idea to discuss the basic fundamentals of portative organs. I therefore added a second introductory video just to explain what a portative organ is – the first one explains my reasons for creating this series of videos.

In addition, in this video I explain the main models that portative organ makers usually build.

Although this series of videos will cover many topics, your questions about portative organs are welcome.

Enjoy the video!
