The Workshop


Frédéric Desmottes was trained as an organ builder and voicer under the direction of master organ builder Pascal Quoirin from 1980 to 1987. After completing his training at the age of 26, Desmottes founded his own workshop in Cuenca in 1990. In 1994, the workshop moved to Landete (Cuenca), where it grew to its current size.

With a staff of eight, the company is dedicated to the manufacture, reconstruction, restoration and maintenance of organs, and performs all work at its own facilities. This means working with everything from wood plank to metal ingots, transforming them into boxes, keyboard actions, soundboards and reservoirs, in addition to all wood and metal pipework.
