Tuning & Maintenance
Organs, like any other complicated machines, benefit from regular maintenance. Cathedral organs are usually tuned about once a month, whereas smaller organs in country parishes might need only a single visit each year.
Harrison & Harrison have a team of tuners – all fully qualified as organ builders – who tune and maintain instruments all over the UK.
Through our tuning work we have built excellent relationships with customers extending over many decades.
In accordance with the laws of physics, the tuning varies with the ambient temperature. Organs can malfunction if dirt gets into the mechanism, the timber shrinks or the leather dries out. Our tuners are skilled at making sure that the organ remains in good working order.
