Reinstallation Video
This summer we restored the 1895 (II/9) Hutchings organ at First Parish Church of Stow and Acton in Stow, MA. A church member made a stop-action video of Jonathan Ross and Andrew Hagberg reinstalling the pipework. Click here to see the video.
Nantucket Hutchings Organ
to be Rebuilt and Enlarged
We are rebuilding and enlarging the 1902 Hutchings-Votey organ, Opus 1473, at St. Paul's Episcopal Church in Nantucket, MA. This rebuilding is part of a major church renovation project which includes the construction a new handicapped accessible entrance wing. A church member photographed the organ's removal in October and produced an illustrated article for the church's newsletter. Click here to read the article.

Restored and Rebuilt Organs

A mechanical action pipe organ is a long-term investment which, with periodic restoration or rebuilding, can give centuries of service. Andover’s reputation as the leading restorer of historic 19th century American organs is unrivaled.

As the criteria for what constitutes an "historic" organ have evolved with changes in time and taste, we are increasingly called upon to restore "modern" historic organs. We lavish the same care and attention to detail on these 20th Century tracker and electro-pneumatic instruments as we do on 19th Century organs.

We are also adept at rebuilding existing instruments, to help them achieve their full mechanical and musical potential. Occasionally, an instrument's usefulness can be greatly improved by some judicious tonal changes or additions. We take great pride in skillfully blending the new with the old. The end result can be the functional equivalent of a new instrument, but for far less cost.
