F H Browne & Sons ltd is delighted to announce that it has acquired the trading name and intellectual property rights of Mander Organs Ltd. From 1st October 2020 F H Browne (Organ Builders) Ltd will revert to trading under the name Mander Organ Builders for all current and future contracts.
Both companies are based in South East England, and three of the current FHB employees (including myself) are former employees of Mander Organs, so there are immediate synergies.
We are delighted to have made this transition and look forward to working with our present and future customers both in the UK and Internationally.

There's a link to a video of it playing and I can't say I like the reed in the Couperin and it is more top heavy than would suit a small room. Swapping a couple of ranks out could make a difference and turn it into something very good.
