Instrument Cleaning & Reeds Renovation

St. Leo the Great Catholic Church, Winston-Salem, NC

Thick layer of dust is certain to cause many problems in any instrument. Once in a while it is necessary to tackle the “thankless job” – cleaning… All pipes were removed, windchests cleaned inside and out, all pipes vacuumed and blown with compressed air and then regulated for voicing problems and tuned. It might be a mundane job but how necessary!

We also took out all of the existing reed pipes in order to renovate them, clean the inner parts and to re-voice them. Lastly, the Swell shutters were working intermittently, so we addressed this problem as well.
