Rebuilding will make it possible to give an instrument a new lease of life. This is feasible if restoration is not found to be the most effective solution, or for instruments which need to be relocated to a new home.
This work can also give the possibility to improve the tonal structure, upgrading the action to have ample playing facilities and improve maintenance access.
This work is also suitable for organs
which have been relocated. When redundant organs are fitted in new locations, they require their internal settings and casework to be adjusted to suit its new service.
Rebuilding an instrument can also include improving and upgrading the specifications and stop list so as to make the instrument much more resourceful. This may include the addition of further ranks of pipes, couplers and also improvement of the wind system. Additional playing facilities such as the transposer, pre-sets and playback systems can also be introduced.
