About GO-Organ Builders

After many years and many different variations of its name, GO Organ Builders Ltd. has gained a reputation as a formidable force in the world of organ building.

Gary Owens, director, has overseen the transformation of many fine instruments, many of which had fallen into severe disrepair. After several years as curator of the organs at the Liverpool Anglican and Metropolitan Cathedrals with his previous employer, he began working further afield- Boston, USA and Sydney, Australia. After some time he decided to return to his home soil and start GO-Organs.

gary-owens-organistOffering a comprehensive range of organ building services, GO-Organ Builders soon gained a reputation for transforming the sound of many instruments after just one visit. This has helped the company build up a healthy tuning round to keep us busy between rebuilds and overhauls. Many clients were amazed that their instruments could be transformed so quickly.

In 2005 Gary and his team took on the task of rebuilding the Giggleswick School Chapel Organ, a famous three manual 1901 Willis organ. Other notable work includes the overhaul of the 1906 Walker/Rushworth & Dreaper in the chapel of Bluecoats School, Liverpool and overhaul of the 1865 Wilkinson organ at Crosthwaite Church in Cumbria.

Though GO-Organs is responsible for the care of many fine instruments, such as those at Brecon Cathedral, Stoke Minster, Pembroke College- Oxford, Downing College- Cambridge and Dutch Church- Austin Friars, we pride ourselves on giving the same amount of care and attention of those in poor condition or sadly neglected. It's our business to get the best possible results every time.
