Since 1979, our company has completed dozens of restorations and enlargements, ranging from strict restorations of mechanical action instruments more than 130 years old to revitalizing electro-pneumatic organs celebrating their 30th anniversary. As with building new instruments, our approach to restorations of existing instruments is easy to summarize: We work to restore older instruments to like-new or often better-than-new condition. The resources in our workshops’ give us the capacity to repair, discretely improve or replace worn components with replicas as each situation requires.

Decisions about tonal matters when restoring or enlarging an existing pipe organs are often made in close consultation with our clients. Where appropriate, attention is paid to ensuring similar materials and scales are used when replacing damaged ranks or enlarging an instrument. In the same way, new ranks are voiced only after studying the style of the original voicing. In cases where little knowledge exists about what constitutes an authentic sound, we will also frequently visit and study as many extant and unaltered instruments by the original builder as possible.
