Pipe Organs


Since 1983, we have been US representatives for Klop Orgelbau, the Netherlands. The workmanship and musicality of these instruments are of the highest order, and the Klop organs are now known from coast to coast.

In addition, we are builders of a 17th Century German continuo organ of two or three ranks (Bennett / Giuttari) , specifically designed for smaller ensembles. Both of these organs are available on rental anywhere in the continental US from HCH for concert or recording use.

Continuo Organs by Henk Klop, Netherlands
Designed by Gerrit & Henk Klop of the Netherlands, this continuo organ has found its place among many early music groups, choirs and touring ensembles in the US and throughout the world. To achieve the mild yet carrying tone so searched for in continuo organs, the pipework is made entirely of wood, following historical examples like the Compenius organ of 1610 in Copenhagen. This has as extra advantages extremely light weight and ruggedness of construction; it can be easily transported in any position without fear of damage. The case in which the organ arrives also serves as its transport case. Placed on its back, the organ fits into almost any station wagon. All registers are split bass/treble, with both stop knobs operated by one (left) hand. Casework is in cherry with ornamental grill panels.

Continuo Organs by Bennett & Giuttari
A continuo organ of two or three ranks made its debut at the Boston Early Music Festival 1995. The instrument is the collaboration of John Bennett and Glenn Giuttari and was based on the kisten organs of the 17th century (Manderscheit, Nuremberg), with all pipework in wood. Panels on the side (fretwork) and top of the instrument control the egress of sound. The sticker action/ palletbox lies directly beneath the keydesk, giving very precise control of pipe speech. A single-fold wedge reservoir gives gently flexible wind. The instrument's mild voicing is ideal for continuo and chamber ensemble settings.
