Organ building workshop – Joaquín Lois Cabello
Our organ building workshop has been devoted to building and restoring pipe organs since 1972. It is located in Tordesillas, Valladolid (Spain), where it was settled in 1985. We have carried out many important jobs in different regions of Spain (both on the peninsula and the islands), Ibero-America and Europe. Regarding both restorations and the construction of brand new organs, our work process is truly comprehensive and encompasses from historical research to the construction of all the mechanical parts, the metal and wooden pipe work as well as the case. It also includes polychromy, gilding and any kind of ornamentation.
The philosophy of our organ building workshop lays emphasis on the retrieval of the traditional techniques and the knowledge of the different schools. We conceive each instrument as a research project, both restorations and brand new organs.
Our workshop focuses mainly on Castilian Baroque organs or Iberian organs, and its location, in the heart of Castilla y León, has allowed us to delve into their study and research easily and to restore and build a large number of Iberian organs.
