Rebuilds

Successfully enhancing an existing pipe organ is in many ways more challenging than building a good new one. One of the strengths of our Service Department is the ability to make additions or modifications in keeping with the character of an organ’s existing tonal palette, bringing out its best sound without taking it outside the style laid down by the organ’s original designer.
