| R.A. Colby has performed a number of organ renovations and simple rebuilds. From the grand Austin Organ to newer OSI chestwork, Colby has the capability to transform an aging organ into a refreshed and revitalized instrument.
|We will meet with you and your committee to decide on which aspects of the instrument should be rebuilt, which should be replaced/updated, and what kinds of renovations can occur to conceive an instrument with a full pallette of tonal color.|
|Some work can be done on-site, but a majority of organs we rebuild are brought back to our shop. Here they are disassembled, sanded, releathered, cleaned, and brought back to life. We then re-assemble the instrument and fully test the organ in our shop so when we place the instrument back in its home it will be ready to perform its wonders.|
|Some aspects of a renovation:
• Console re-finishing
• Reservoir releathering
• Swell Shade operators
• Windline upgrades
• Wiring updates
• Pipe reconditioning & revoicing
• Resource Additions
