KIRK A. WILSON & ASSOCIATES, L.L.C.
Meticulous Care for Electro-pneumatic Pipe Organs™
Regular Tuning & Maintenance:
Quarterly Tuning & Maintenance keeps your church’s pipe organ in its best possible voice through the calendar year.
The majority of our client base is in the Carolinas, Georgia, Tennessee
and southern West Virginia we are proud to provide service to clients
in Western Pennsylvania and Northeastern Ohio as well.
We offer regular tuning and maintenance work on a contractual basis
which provides for two “through tunings” and two additional
“touch-up tunings” per year. Through tunings
are scheduled roughly six months apart— one in the fall when the
heating season starts and another in the spring when the cooling season
A “through tuning” includes a thorough mechanical review of the instrument as well as a complete tuning
of your pipe organ. Depending on the overall size of the organ to be
tuned, these through tunings may require an entire day to complete. At
the completion of the work we routinely prepare a written report of the
condition of the instrument and make the client aware of any serious
mechanical problems that will require attention in the not-too-distant
Two additional tunings are scheduled close to the Christmas and Easter holidays and are, as the name implies— tunings to touch up
any notes within a division that might have slipped out of tune or
regulation since our previous visit. Touch-up tunings routinely include
the complete tuning of all reed stops in the organ as well as careful
study and correction of the tuning of the upperwork and requires
less time to complete when compared to a through-tuning.
Our fee for this work is based on a uniform fee schedule and is
billed in four equal installments, each due 30 days after our visit.
