    Truly awesome. Wish you'd tell us what modern music is heard here -- I caught the Pachelbel variations.

    Agora entendo porque um órgão de tubos é tão caro.

    Holy Cow, What a great vidieo. Years ago, this organisto just assumed that pipe organ building would soon be a dead, lost art....too expensive...too labor intensive. 10- 20 hours per note! ???? OMG very thankful I was wrong. Perhaps on one of the Star Trek future movies, they'll feature some labor intensive artistic craftsmanship... like building Chippendale tall chests.

    Fantastic presentation, great to see such craftsmanship at work. I was wondering, how sustainable is your tree procurement from Africa, do you undertake replanting?

      Absolutely! All of the wood used in the making of these fabulous instruments is FSC certified.

      Thank you David. The mahogany Ruffatti uses is FSC certified for sustainability. Great question. Mahogany is the most stable species of wood against warping, and Ruffatti uses the best variety (Sipo), has the logs quarter-sawn, and then naturally seasons the lumber for 5 years before it is used in organ production.
