Our own restoration workshops

Since 1974, we have maintained a department of our own that focuses exclusively on the restoration of historical instruments of many different types, involving various technical systems. On the one hand, this complex discipline requires a great deal of specialization and professional expertise. On the other, we consider it vitally important that our organ builders have the right personal attitude for the job. Because not everyone is able – or even willing – to discover what it is that makes this particular kind of work so very special.

In the service of individuality

Subjective values cannot be allowed to play a role in our work. Preconceived notions, not to mention prejudices, are equally out of place. In our opinion, there is no place for ideological considerations in restoration work. It cannot be based on a single, overriding objective, such as the uncompromising restoration of an organ to pristine condition or preservation of a state gradually acquired over the years. Every organ is unique and therefore demands an individual concept for its restoration.
