Our design and tonal philosophy is to create and voice instruments in a style that is distinctly our own, with no pretense of copying one school or historical design. Our goal is to blend general contemporary American ideas with our own concepts based on research into other organ-building traditions.
New Pipe Organs
Our new organs feature Quimby Pipe Organs’ Blackinton style electro-pneumatic slider windchests, which allow the pipes to speak clearly and practically instantaneously. Our instruments are designed to be “service-friendly” – to provide easy access of tuning and maintenance, giving dependable and reliable service for many generations to come.
Rebuilding & Restoration
Restoration projects offer us the opportunity to observe and document successful approaches of other master organ builders, ultimately influencing our own work.
We maintain an inherent respect for the historic integrity of existing instruments, while also taking into consideration client-developed goals for any restoration or rebuild project.

PIPE ORGANS & WEATHER CHANGE
Wasn’t that weather during the month of December 2001 bizarre? Bitter cold one day then balmy the next. The weather plays a huge part in the maintenance and tuning of a pipe organ.
