Repair, Cleaning, Restoration ...Details
The price for our service is up to 50% lower than those of other pipe organ builders (technicians).
We use HIGH QUALITY materials known in the pipe organ trade: leather, glues, felt and wood. This includes such industry standards as releatherings made of kangaroo leather.
Renovation works in churches can be carried out with help of parishioners.
During renovation, the instrument is still in use- only the repaired parts are detached.
Passion and respect for the integrity of each instrument and the vision of the original builder is crucial to our work across the United States. Every aspect of our approach, whether it is tuning, maintenance, restoration, rebuilding or new instrument commission is based on knowledge, experience and the inherent musicality that each pipe organ possesses, rather than on imposing a musical style which is not corresponding with the instrument. Instruments under our care are thoroughly researched and understood. Musicality and refinement of sound are predominant and are always carefully considered with respect to the building in which they are housed. Pipe Organ 24 is committed to the finest quality of craftsmanship, maintaining a fully equipped workshop and voicing facilities. Our Company holds experience, giving us the ability to maximize the potential of each pipe organ.
