A Technical Guide to the Organ

This guide is designed to help architects, church planners, organists, and those interested in organ building with the proper technical information for success in organ building and matching an organ to it's new home.  At Wicks, we work closely with every customer to make sure each instrument we build is perfectly suited to the room in which it will take residence, and this guide is a tool we use to ensure customers are fully informed of their responsibilities to prepare for the installation of a Wicks organ.  This publication is also available in print.

Information in this guide pertains only to Wicks organs, and may not be suitable for organs built by other companies.  The information is accurate for most instruments and situations, and may not be correct for all situations.  Before preparing to buy or install a pipe organ, please contact us at organs@wicks.com.
