About TPOTech
English (USA)

TPOTech is a discussion list primarily for the technicians, owners, builders, and restorers of theatre pipe organs, and for those that desire to increase his/her knowledge of the proper way of restoring, installing, maintaining, and repairing these instruments. Other subscribers may include suppliers and those who are interesting in getting more information regarding personal and/or organizational theatre organ installations.

For the mighty theatre pipe organs of the 1920ís and 1930ís to survive and maintain at least a semblance of originality, knowledgeable technicians and repair personnel must be available. It is recognized that quality professional organ building firms exist, but in many cases either financial or geographical constraints require local individuals to undertake repairs and installation of private or organizationally owned organs. It is the goal of this list to provide educational opportunities for its members so that installations will be in accordance with accepted professional and original techniques. Also, technical approaches used in theatre pipe organ building are occasionally quite different than those used in pipe organs used in churches, auditoriums, concert halls, etc. This list will help provide information and direction aimed specifically at theatre pipe organs, per se.
