Assembly--   The Reuter assembly room is 45 feet high and has 2800 square feet of floor space, large enough to completely assemble and test even the largest instruments—the critical, final phase of preparation before an organ can leave the Reuter facility.

Rod Czerniak has been on the staff for over 20 years and is in charge of the workers that take all the components from the other departments and assemble them into a complete instrument. They wire all the windchests and fit them with magnets, valves, and sliders; build the organ frames; install the chests and winding systems; and finally rack all the pipes.

The organ then undergoes rigorous testing before being very carefully disassembled and packed to reach its final destination.
