Organ Builder Rast acknowledges that every pipe organ is unique.

Passion and respect for the integrity of each instrument and the vision of the original builder is crucial to our work across the United States. Every aspect of our approach, whether it is tuning, maintenance, restoration, rebuilding or new instrument commission is based on knowledge, experience and the inherent musicality that each pipe organ possesses, rather than on imposing a musical style which is not corresponding with the instrument. Instruments under our care are thoroughlyvresearched and understood. Musicality and refinement of sound are predominant and are always carefully considered with respect to the building in which they are housed. Organ Builder Rast is committed to the finest quality of craftsmanship, maintaining a fully equipped workshop and voicing facilities. Our Company holds experience, giving us the ability to maximize the potential of each pipe organ.
