                    NEWS RELEASE - FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
                                NASDAQ-AORGB

February 24, 2005            From: Nathan S. Eckhart, Vice President-Finance

Consolidated  sales  for the year ended December 31,  2004  for  Allen  Organ
Company were $80,170,788, as compared with $60,788,058 for the same period of
2003.   The  consolidated net income was $4,709,047 or $4.07 per basic  share
and  $4.06  per diluted share for 2004, compared to $1,396,896 or  $1.20  per
basic and diluted share for 2003.

Sales  for  the  fourth  quarter of 2004 were  $22,351,371,  as  compared  to
$19,255,623  in  2003.   Net  income for  the  fourth  quarter  of  2004  was
$1,219,769  or  $1.05 per basic and diluted share, compared to $1,365,679  or
$1.18 per basic and diluted share for 2003.

Musical  Instruments  segment  sales  increased  approximately  $905,000   to
$6,079,188,  and  $505,000 to $20,886,800, during the three months  and  year
ended  December 31, 2004, respectively, when compared to the same periods  in
2003.   These  increases  in  sales reflect shipments  of  organs  containing
QuantumT  technology introduced in the second quarter of 2004, with shipments
beginning in the third quarter.  The 2004 order rate and backlog on  December
31,  2004  continued  to be higher than the same periods in  2003  reflecting
favorable  customer  reaction to the Quantum organs that include  significant
new   features  and  product  benefits,  as  well  as  an  improved  economic
environment.   This  segment  generated  operating  income  of  approximately
$449,000  and $613,000, respectively, during the three months and year  ended
December  31, 2004, compared to operating losses of approximately  $(137,000)
and  $(765,000)  for  the same periods in 2003.  The  2004  operating  income
reflects higher gross margins on organs due to changes in product mix and the
impact of cost reduction initiatives undertaken in 2003.

The  Data Communications segment sales increased approximately $2,166,000  to
$15,121,200 and $18,958,000 to $54,980,044, during the three months and  year
ended  December 31, 2004, respectively, when compared to the same periods  in
2003.   These  increases  are due to higher order  volume,  which  management
believes is attributable to an improvement in the overall data communications
market  and  the  timing  of  completing  sales  with  the  Company's  larger
customers.  Operating income decreased to approximately $1,096,000 during the
three  months  ended  December  31, 2004, compared  to  operating  income  of
$1,360,000  in  the  same period of 2003.  This decrease  is  due  to  higher
operating  costs, primarily higher research and development costs  associated
with the development of this segments next generation of products.  Operating
income increased to approximately $6,436,000 for the year ended December  31,
2004,  as  compared to operating income of $2,446,000 in the same  period  in
2003,  due  to the higher sales volume.  This segment's business  has  become
more  dependent on sales to larger customers that may cause sales  levels  to
fluctuate in future quarters.  Completion of such sales, product mix  changes
and  increasing expenditures for new product development could affect  future
operating results.

Electronic  Assemblies  segment sales decreased slightly  during  the  fourth
quarter  and were approximately equal for the year ended December  31,  2004,
when compared to the same periods in 2003.

Audio  Equipment segment sales increased approximately $47,000  to  $414,351,
and  decreased $82,000 to $1,481,925, during the three months and year  ended
December  31, 2004, respectively, when compared to the same periods in  2003.
This segment's operating losses increased for the three months and year ended
December  31,  2004, compared to the same periods in 2003.  The  2004  yearly
loss  includes  $150,000  of additional inventory reserves  included  in  the
fourth quarter and a charge of approximately $362,000 taken during the second
quarter  to  write down the value of Legacy Audio's goodwill  and  intangible
assets.

Investment income for the three months and year ended December 31,  2004  was
lower than the same periods in 2003 due to lower rates of return available on
invested funds.

The effective tax rate for the year ended December 31, 2004 increased due  to
higher  levels  of  taxable income when compared to  2003  during  which  tax
credits and other non-taxable items created a tax benefit.

management's  opinions only as of the date hereof.  Readers should  carefully
review  the risk factors described in other documents the Company files  from
time  to  time  with  the Securities and Exchange Commission,  including  the

customer  requirements, delays in new product qualifications, the timing  and
extent of research and development expenses and fluctuations in manufacturing
yields.   As  a  result of the foregoing or other factors, there  can  be  no
assurance  that  the  Company will not experience  material  fluctuations  in
future  operating  results  on  a quarterly  or  annual  basis,  which  would
materially  and adversely affect the Company's business, financial  condition
and results of operations.
