Frequently asked questions

  • What can you expect from us? A typical tuning visit will involve checking over all parts of the organ, not just tuning it. Each visit we will tune the organ, check for regulation and correct any minor faults listed by the organist.  
  • How often should a pipe organ be tuned?  Some small organs only require a visit once or twice a year. With larger instruments, we liaise with the customer on their requirements.
  • How much does it cost to tune an organ?  Our prices vary based on the size of the organ. Please contact us on 01530 588917 or info@cousansorgans.co.uk to discuss your requirements.
  • We're having building work in the church, do we need to protect the organ? Yes, anything that will throw up dirt and dust can get into the pipes and organ mechanisms.  We can supply and fit sheeting to cacoon an organ whilst works take place to ensure as little disruption to the organ as possible.
  • We recommend in the winter months that the church is heated to Sunday Service temperature for tuning visits. The pipework which is made from either metal or wood expands and contracts depending on the temperature of the church, therefore the most accurate tuning is achieved when the temperature in the church to tune, is the same as service temperature.
  • We are always pleased to offer support and advice to customers on any concerns they have in regard to the organ, whether it be a suspicious noise coming from the blower to woodworm or asbestos.
