Organ Hire

Title here
Make Makin the first port of call if you need to have an organ hire since we have a growing number of instruments in our hire fleet and we aim to meet your needs. During the past three decades the Makin reputation as Church organ builders has been recognised by many prestigious establishments who have approached the company for both short and long term hire instruments. In addition, organs, both large and small, are continually being supplied on a hire basis for organ concerts, orchestral concerts, choral societies, weddings, University degree ceremonies and many other such events. We have a full range of organs available to suit any occasion.

Please contact Makin as early as possible in the planning stage of your event. Typically our installation team book at least six to eight weeks in advance so the chances of a hire organ being available with less notice than this are slim. However, we do have a reputation for meeting what for some would be impossible deadlines, so if your blower dies and have eight graduation ceremonies within the next few days, do give us a call. This is what Chester Cathedral did, and we managed to get a suitable instrument installed within twenty four hours.

Long term hires frequently need much more notice to plan and to ensure you get the right instrument to meet your needs.

A continuo organ is now available for hire.
