TT1 - Schuke Orgelbau
The Berliner Orgelbauwerkstatt (Berlin organ manufacture), with its more than 500 organs and over 8,500 stops, has acquired over the last 50 years a name that has been as internationally recognized as in Germany. It is here that instruments of varying size and purpose have been designed and built; university organs for instructive purposes, resident organs, Positivs and chest instruments, concert hall organs with over 90 stops and up to 6 keyboards – always built with mechanical tone action – and more than 350 church organs. Each instrument, therefore, is developed with its own character and takes its own place in the history of the company.
