Accurate Organ Restoration & Rebuilding
With more than 40 years of expertise, Griffiths & Co (Organ Builders) Ltd is the name you can trust for high-precision organ restoration and rebuilding. We meet the needs of owners of valuable pipe organs in Portsmouth, Hampshire, within a 100-mile radius.
Much of our work involves genuine restoration of historically valuable instruments. This can be exacting work, involving the use of correct materials and glues, with a full understanding of how restoration was done in the past. For instruments worthy of such attention, grants are often available.
In some cases, particularly if an instrument is moved to a new location within the building or to another, it may be necessary to re-configure it to fit. Great care needs to be taken to ensure everything is accessible, not only for tuning but also for maintenance. This can often mean the replacement of pneumatic action with electro-pneumatics, re-wiring, and the fitting of a modern, computer-based processing system to power the action and console aids.
