basdav Posted March 3, 2008 Share Posted March 3, 2008 Can anyone give me the history of 2 organ builders who were active in the midlands during the 70's and 80's. The first is L J Snell who rebuilt amongst other organs Rack Worcs, a 3 manual Father Willis which was electrified and moved under the tower, now unplayable and replaced by a toaster. Ombersley, this organs restoration is still an on going issue, its playable but supplemented by a toaster in the chancel. The second is Robin Wynn who rebuilt organs in the Coesley area, I have only played one of his and there were many pipes not inserted and the cable runs to the console are very amusing. Can I ask for information on these please, who did they train with to become organ builders and any thing else of interest. Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
