Building instruments of the utmost quality requires a highly trained, talented, and dedicated staff. Over the decades, craft skills have been passed from generation to generation of artisans who make up the team at The Schantz Organ Company.
Expert craftsmen and craftswomen employ a wide variety of skills such as metalworking for organ pipe construction, and woodworking for windchest, case, and console construction. Modern technologies in the completed instrument, including solid-state electronics for switching and software-based control systems, are utilized for increased flexibility and ease of use by the organist. In construction, computer aided design and computer driven cutting tools are employed in the fabrication of Schantz organs. These resources are utilized, where practical, for efficient and accurate production.
By developing skills over the course of their careers, each member of our staff brings the highest level of quality to their work, thereby helping to ensure the construction of instruments of distinction.
