      Elsener Organ Works, Inc. - arose out of a need for a Long Island, New York based pipe organ service company.  Initially formed as a pipe organ tuning and maintenance company, a call for more extensive services was recognized.  Subsequently, the business underwent two expansions to larger and more fully equipped facilities.  Elsener Organ Works, Inc. consists of a talented workforce with over one hundred years of combined experience and craftsmanship in the fine art of pipe organ-building.

Many pipe organs have been saved through the combined efforts of Elsener Organ Works, dedicated and knowledgeable organists along with properly informed church personnel.  Our work together is critical to the survival of the pipe organ.  Each pipe organ saved is a small victory in our throwaway society.

     

Pipe Organ Rebuilding

A pipe organ can last many lifetimes. One only has to look to Europe to see fine instruments dating back to the 16th century that play as beautifully today as they did hundreds of years ago.

Most often, pipe organ rebuilding is necessary as perishables deteriorate over a time period of approximately forty to fifty years. Leather becomes porous, felt becomes worn and relay systems show evidence of wear as contacts fatigue or break off. It is through the maintenance and repair of these items that a pipe organ's service life can be virtually extended indefinitely.

Organists are usually the first to realize that an organ is beginning to deteriorate. Sluggish action overall sometimes points to leather porosity. Frequent non-sounding notes or notes that do not stop playing (ciphers) also evidence the need to plan for a pipe organ rebuild.

As the church forms a committee to oversee the process of organ rebuilding it is important that committee members have some knowledge of the pipe organ in their church. A successful rebuild starts with a competent committee to sort through proposals, check references and finally choose a reputable firm for rebuilding the pipe organ.

Pipe Organ Restoration

When it comes time for a pipe organ to be rebuilt there are many questions about updating, additions and/or tonal modifications. While certain organs might require such upgrades, others deserve a faithful restoration. Many fine pipe organs were altered unsatisfactorily chasing trendy fads and many of those organs have since been dismantled or returned to their previous state.

An authentically restored pipe organ is a true treasure as it allows us to hear the work of the great builders from years past just as they intended. It is a link to our past that will last and be enjoyed for many more generations to come.
