Organ Solutions

Bedient Pipe Organ Company has been designing and building fine instruments for more than 40 years. We are not a factory. Our shop has no assembly lines. We are a group of passionate craftspeople, who combine wood, metal, and cutting-edge technology into inspiration.

Pipe Organs for Worship, Universities, and Concert Halls

Many churches, universities, and recital halls throughout the U.S. have Bedient pipe organs. We are respected and sought after for our beautifully-crafted instruments. We design and build pipe organs that impact the musicians who play them as well as the people listening. Bedient instruments inspire while they feel like they have always been part of the space in which they are played.

We design and build custom pipe organs, but we also have a Legacy Line of organs. These instruments are completed designs which can be modified to meet the needs of your space. Many of the features are preset, but there is still room for imagination.

Crafting Unique Instruments

Bedient Pipe Organ - Opus 75Bedient Pipe Organ Company has a long tradition of hand-crafting instruments. We understand that the space is the largest part of each pipe organ. Acoustics, proportion, decor, and use inform the design of each of our custom instruments. This is part of the craft we take very seriously.

When we design your custom pipe organ, we scrutinize every aspect of the instrument, from key action to the final finish on the woodwork. We work with you to create and build the instrument you want and need.

Co-creating your Instrument

Contact and Assessment

The instrument won’t suit your needs if we don’t know you. We start by visiting your worship or recital space. We document the dimensions of the space and listen to you as we discuss what you need from your new pipe organ. We explore all aspects of the project: budget, scheduling, room size, acoustics, architectural elements, and musical style. Consultation fees are calculated to just cover expenses for transportation, food, and lodging.

Design

Once we have matched the dimensions to the desires, we can start designing the instrument. This is a fluid part of the process. We continue to design until we have the perfect fit. This is your instrument. It will last generations. We are passionate about matching the instrument to the space, musicians, and audience.

Crafted in Nebraska

Once the design meets specifications, our builders craft the wood, metal, and cutting-edge technology into a beautiful instrument. This instrument is tested and voiced in our Nebraska shop before it is disassembled, packed, and shipped to you.

Installation

This is the final stage of the process. We deliver the pipe organ, assemble, voice, and tune it. We are careful to be efficient and respectful. The same hands that crafted the instrument work onsite to see it is properly integrated into the space. Once in place, the process of voicing and tuning completes and often exceeds the original vision of the project.

Rebuilding and Transplanting Pipe Organs

Sioux Falls before and after Bedient Pipe Organ restoration.

Many of our most-exciting projects have involved existing pipe organs. Sometimes these instruments have gone unplayed for years, or have been damaged by a structural issue in the surrounding building. These instruments require deep cleaning and replacement of parts like pipes, pouches, or wiring. Other pipe organs need to be augmented to fit the needs of a growing congregation and worship space. Still others need a new home with a different congregation or recital space. The professionals at Bedient will help you find the right option to meet your pipe organ needs.

Pictured left is the Sioux Falls organ before they asked us to redesign and after Bedient Pipe Organ completed a redesign and restoration.
