Our shop is uniquely capable of designing and building small to mid-sized mechanical action organs. Our restorations of historic tracker organs are approached with the same amount of attention to detail as our new organs. Each project is unique, but many follow a similar process.
After contacting us, the first step will be for a representative of our company to visit with you to get a sense of your music program and your worship space or to meet with a building committee to review plans for your future building. With that information we will generate a preliminary proposal outlining all aspects of our proposed instrument including a specification with a description and a preliminary budget. We may also include a simple sketch of a proposed façade to indicate our vision. At this point we encourage having a thorough dialogue between all parties so that we can be sure the proposed organ is the right instrument for you.
When the final proposal is accepted a contract is drafted for the proposed instrument that will detail all aspects of the project.
The following steps are where the fun really begins. With the signed contract in hand, orders for materials go out to our suppliers and detailed final drawings for your instrument are generated. The construction of the organ begins and progress reports will ensue. At this time scheduled visits to see the progress are encouraged, particularly near the completion of the project as the entire instrument will be assembled in our shop.
Soon after completion, the organ will be disassembled, carefully packed and loaded for transport. As soon as the truck arrives at your church, we will be there to unload the organ and begin the installation. The voicing of the instrument will follow the initial installation and is the most exciting part of the process as this is when your organ comes to life.
