First used for ceremonial purposes around 900 CE the church pipe organ stands a grand example to its predecessor the pipe organ appearing 1100 years earlier. Pipe organs are not only popular in churches, but they can also be found in concert halls, schools, and even private properties.
The grand instruments use pressurised air to produce sound through organ pipes. The pipes are selected by one or more of the organ keys at a time to create differing pitches and volumes.
We have for Auction a fabulous single owner collection of harpsichords, grand pianos, square pianos, organs, Northumbrian pipes, recorders, guitars and other musical instruments.
