Job Opportunity!

November 16th, 2014

Our business is GROWING!  We now have an immediate opening for an individual to work in our shop, and to also help with tuning, service, and installation.  We offer medical insurance and an opportunity to become a key member of an expanding firm.  We are located in scenic Marion, IN, about midway between Indianapolis and […]

When we last checked in on the pipe craftsmen in the Czech Republic, they had poured sheets of hot liquid metal onto a long table to cast the material for the new organ pipes for the Shelbyville organ. Then, we had to wait. Even in our busy, hi-tech world, some things take patience. If we […]

  What’s so special about a pipe organ? Well… THE PIPES! The new organ at St. Joseph’s Catholic Church in Shelbyville, IN, will include pipes made by the skilled hands of master craftsmen over a century ago, and undergoing restoration by skilled hands in our shop, and in the shop of our master reed maker, […]

  Martin Ellis will play the rededication concert on the pipe organ at First Friends Church in Noblesville, IN.  We have just completed (I mean, a few hours ago) a renovation of this organ that includes a completely renewed and refurbished Moller console, replacing the dilapidated Wicks console on this Wicks organ.  The console had […]

Occasionally, the demands or opportunities of life part us from dear friends and colleagues. So it is that we must say goodbye to Martin Ellis.  Martin has accepted a professional opportunity that will take him to Portland, Oregon.  I understand that in Portland they have beautiful weather and good food.  Now they also have one […]

August 27th, 2014

  For those of you who hang on every word of this blog (lol), I must apologize for my absence the past couple of weeks.  Both my computer and I have suffered from illness.  The computer on which I write and edit this blog spent a week in the hospital.  I want to personally thank […]

So, if you’ve been following along, we’ve come up with the perfect recipe for the delicious soup that will be the Shelbyville organ. Let’s see… In a 4 quart pot, combine 3 quarts of hearty broth, 2 quarts of tomato sauce, 2 1/2 pounds of beef, 4 large potatoes, 2 large onions, 3 celery stalks, […]

  Today, I want to share some random thoughts about a process that isn’t at all random – designing, or in the case of the Shelbyville organ, re-designing the sound of a pipe organ. It continues to amaze me how many people, even including some otherwise competent musicians, don’t understand the basics of this most […]

  It is proving to be a busy (and exhausting!) summer. In the midst of several projects that are happening in the shop, we are making some important changes to our facility itself. We are moving our CNC router shop to our new (a few years ago) back building, which has been finished inside and […]
