OHS Pipe Organ Database
Browse Database by Builder

All organ builders who are represented by at least one organ in the OHS Database as of September 1, 2015 are included in the following table.

The builders appear in alphabetical order by the last name of the builder (if an individual) or by the name in common usage (if a firm). An entry in the "Distinction" column is provided to help distinguish one builder from another when similar names might cause confusion. To see a list of all catalogued organs by a builder, click the highlighted name in the first column.

Please note that this list is currently being revised, and that we welcome your assistance in refining its content. A new form for sending information about builders is being tested. If you would like to help us out with new information, and help us refine the way the new form works, check out our Database Lab, accessible from the Database Home Page.
