The Bedient Pipe Organ Story

The Bedient Pipe Organ Company was founded in 1969 by Gene Bedient.

We create fine, powerful, enduring instruments that  inspire. Read More >


A Bedient Transformation

We are pleased to announce a transformation of Bedient Pipe Organ Company. Paul Lytle and Mark Miller have been heading the Lincoln Organ Company, d.b.a. Bedient Pipe Organ Company, since Gene Bedient announced his retirement nearly ten years ago. With the transition complete as of June 1, 2015, Paul and Mark have moved forward with a new company. We are now officially Bedient Pipe Organ Company of Lincoln, Nebraska, L.L.C.. We have relocated to a new facility at 3300 S 6th St., Ste. P in Lincoln where we continue to design, build, and service fine instruments for customers across the United States.

Paul Lytle has retired from active involvement in the day-to-day operations of the company, but Mark Miller continues to serve as President and Tonal Director. Ryan Luckey is Vice-President and Project Manager. Our LLC. also includes:  Jasmine Beach, financial administrator; Guy Davenport, shop foreman; and Bob Lundholm, attorney. Ryan, Jasmine, Guy, and Bob all bring a wealth of knowledge, and it is great to have them as part of our ownership team.

It is our pleasure and privilege to continue serving the many clients who call Bedient for their pipe organ service, rebuilding, and new instrument needs. We are the same folks you have counted on for years! On behalf of our dedicated staff, we look forward to serving all of our current and new customer relationships now and into the future.
