The Organbuilding Process

A Wicks Pipe Organ begins when the customer, the Wicks designers, and the tonal director settle on the design, finish, style, specification, price, and all details of the organ. From there the specification goes to the design department where the layout and the visual aspect of the organ are created. A set of blueprints is drawn, the relay is laid out, and wiring plans are made. From there, the finished plans go to several departments. To see the entire process, click on The Pipe Shop, or click on another department to start there.
