Located in historic Lancaster County Pennsylvania, Columbia Organ Works is now in its 28th year of providing the highest quality new instruments, historic restorations, renovations and maintenance of pipe organs.

Our History

Columbia Organ Works was formed in 1987, in Columbia, Pennsylvania, by Larry Pruett, William Duck and John Speller. Each of the firm's founders had extensive backgrounds in pipe organ construction, maintenance and restoration.

Since the company's founding, in a basement, it has grown to occupy a shop space of more than twenty thousand square feet and to employ eleven pipe organ technicians. 

What We Do

Columbia Organ Works is dedicated to the construction, restoration and renovation of REAL PIPE ORGANS.  We do not work with or install artificial sounds or digitally recorded "voices".

Columbia operates a large pipe organ tuning and maintenance business, servicing more than 130 organs in Pennsylvania, Maryland and the Caribbean. . Columbia Organ Leathers, a division of Columbia Organ Works, processes and supplies leather for use in pipe organs and other musical instruments. This leather is sold to more than one thousand companies throughout the world.

Columbia organ works has gained a reputation for fine quality pipe organ restorations. Some of the firm's more notable projects include the 4 Manual, 81 rank Steinmeyer organ, built in 1931, for the Cathedral of the Blessed Sacrament in Altoona, Pennsylvania, the 2 manual George Stevens organ built in 1869, and now installed in Trinity Episcopal Church, Shepherdstown, West Virginia, the 3 manual, 42 rank Skinner Organ Company organ, built in 1923, and now installed in Hatcher Memorial Baptist Church in Richmond, Virginia, and the 3 manual 28 rank Skinner Organ Company, opus 683, installed in Salem Lutheran Church, Lebanon, Pennsylvania.  We have also restored and installed a number of instruments in churches on islands in the West Indies.

In 2001, Columbia Organ Works completed the construction and installation of the first new pipe organ to be installed on the island of Puerto Rico in more than 50 years.
