Parsons is the premier tuning and technical service company in New York State. Our staff oversees the care of approximately 200 pipe organs on an annual basis. As an organbuilding firm, our service staff is equipped for every aspect of a thorough repair project, including: flue and reed voicing; woodworking and refinishing; electrical work and solid state troubleshooting; and the fabrication of custom components for any pipe organ.
We are often asked about the advantages of a Pipe Organ Tuning Contract. This agreement between our firm and your church benefits both parties. Some of these benefits are listed below.
Lower Service Rates
For on-site work, this lower service rate is valid for the term of the contract. Currently, prepaid contract customers receive a 10% labor discount – and prepaying within the 30-day window allows an additional 5% reduction in our hourly rate.
Reduced travel expenses
We will pre-schedule you as a contract client when we plan a trip to your area. This means you save by sharing travel time and expenses with other clients on the itinerary.
You know who is coming to work on the pipe organ. You can expect consistent service performance, year after year. The contract specifies the length of the normal tuning visit, describes our duties, and outlines our mutual responsibilities. There are no questions; we all know what to expect.
Updates and status reports
We keep complete records; temperatures in the organ, the pitch of the organ; and any problems encountered during a tuning call. Good record keeping enables us to provide you with recommendations for proper care of the instrument. Our reports alert your staff to items in need of attention in order to preserve and prolong the life of the pipe organ.
