“The Organ Clearing House was founded in 1959 for the preservation of pipe organs which need new homes. Our extensive list of distinguished vintage instruments provides our clients with an attractive choice less expensive than the purchase of a new pipe organ. We are typically able to provide complete instruments at approximately half the cost of a comparable new pipe organ.
In addition, we are equipped to provide a full range of services including assessment and consultation, dismantling, packing, and shipping, erecting and installing organs.
The contemporary world of church music offers many artificial substitutes for pipe organs to be used for the musical leadership of public worship. We at the Organ Clearing House suggest that there is no real substitute for a pipe organ, and we maintain that pipe organs are frequently available through our resources for half the cost of an equivalent new instrument. Often, a church can purchase, renovate, and relocate a pipe organ for the cost of an upscale electronic substitute. And always, a professionally installed pipe organ will outlast those substitutes.
Even modern pipe organs are built using ancient principles. Centuries old instruments are in regular use throughout the Christian world, proving that obsolescence is evas ive. Well maintained, thoughtfully used pipe organs do not become doorstops! ..“
