Tradition of organ building

From start to finish, our organs are hand-crafted in the old tradition of artisan organ building. We are dedicated to the tradition of organ building and would like to begin by giving you an introduction to this subject.

Specific parts of an organ

We would like to take you on a tour of our workshop and familiarise you with the specific parts of an organ using text and illustrations. We will explain some of the technical terms such as “wind system”, “tracker action” or “pipes”.

Wood preservation

Wood preservation is a key factor in organ building. Heat treatment is applied to all our instruments to protect them from damage due to insect pests. At Orgelbau Krawinkel, we do not use any chemicals.
