Building pipe organs that are as good as the best organs from the past begins with commitment to achieve the best possible sound, starting with the design and placement of the organ in the intended space.
This means avoiding alcoves and chambers as much as possible, because these diminish the output of the instrument considerably and dull the overtones. We also avoid using plywood and other non-traditional materials that do not contribute as much to the enrichment of the sound.
A good wind supply is a huge factor in the resulting sound of the instrument. Modern wind systems are often planned small and fail to deliver fullness to the sound.
Our actions are made using traditional materials, since they outlast modern materials and perform well.
Innovation within these limitations is entirely possible. For example: we provide servo-pneumatic couplers that take up very little space. In a broader sense, there are always many ways to accomplish a given goal; we find the ones that are the most artistic, reliable and durable.
We are willing to work with difficult design limitations and do not mind incorporating used parts into a project if they are of high qualiity.
