Technical information

When we began our organ building careers all of us scrounged for information about organs. Most of it was difficult to find, and even more difficult to copy. We have shared as much information about our organs as possible to help advance the art of organ building. There will be many pages added to this area of the site as time allows. The goal is to put as much public information as possible about historic and new organs here so that it is readily available to anyone.

The first installment, available on the right menu, contains notes collected by Rudolf von Beckerath before WWII. I have assembled these as a single multi-page pdf file for each organ.
