Pipe Organ Services
All new organs are fabricated in-house at our extensive factory workshops
in Paterson, New Jersey. The quality throughout each new instrument is
unmatched. All materials and components are selected with the knowledge of
93 years of experience in pipe organ construction. Our electrical components
are checked and re checked before finalization of the instrument. Our wood
and leathers are hand selected from the finest providers in the world.
Each component of the instrument is thoroughly tested and assembled before the organ arrives on site. The tonal finishing of the instrument is completed by the Peragallo family themselves as the organ settles into its new surroundings.
organ Maintenance and tuning
In order to ensure that your pipe organ remains in fine playing condition
at all times, we have established an extensive maintenance department. We
offer various maintenance programs based upon instrument usage and the
environmental issues of your particular situation.
Our typical program includes two, three or four tuning/service visits per year and emergency service.
Emergency 24 hour service
Someone is always available immediately to insure that your instrument will remain functional for all the special occasions in the life of the parish.
New Console / Switching upgrades
With the influx of the digital age, we now utilize today’s technology to provide never before dreamed of capabilities for the organist. Auto pedal, Auto solo, transposers, playback and record, piston sequencing, midi and remote wireless keyboards are now a reality.
Rebuilding and Relocating Existing Instruments
Since 1918, the Peragallo Organ Company has been successfully
refurbishing existing instruments throughout the United States. Instruments
of all sizes receive the same complete refurbishing process to provide a
resulting reliable organ.
Recently, we have refurbished the famous Kilgen Organs at St. Patrick’s Cathedral in New York City. Our tonal additions to the Nave Organ division at St. Patrick’s serve to tonally connect Gallery and Chancel Organs a full city block apart. We remain the curators at St. Patrick’s, as well as several other notable New York instruments including the Skinner of St. Paul’s Chapel at Columbia University and the renown MP Moller organ at St. Paul the Apostle Church at Columbus Circle.
The architecture of the space is the true resonator of the pipe organ.
The space is the canvas the sounds of the organ are painted on. Proper
location of the console in relation to the pipe work and the choir and
congregation is truly what takes an instrument to the next level. The
acoustical environment of the space in which the music is produced is a
dedicated balance of materials and design characteristics.
We offer our experience of over 95 years in assisting with you with any additions and alterations to your existing building. Our goal is to produce instruments that truly serve to move the people who worship within the space. The earlier we can interface with your architects, designers and planners in the design process, the better we can guarantee a great result.
We can help you reach your financial goals to fund the pipe organ project. Our custom designed programs include hands on presentations which explain and conceptualize the pipe organ for the parishioner. Our unique memorial donation brochures have proven successful in funding your instrument. Please feel free to contact us and to sit down with you and implement a program to get your organ project moving.
