Pasi Organ Builders is located south of Seattle in Roy, Washington.
The firm specializes in building fine mechanical action organs and restoration of historic instruments.
Working with a small group of fine craftsmen, Martin Pasi oversees all phases of building his organs, including design, manufacturing, voicing, and installation. All components of the instruments are built in his shop.
Since the opening of the shop in 1990, 22 instruments have been completed ranging in size from a 3 stop continuo to a large 4 manual organ.
Martin Pasi received his first formal experience in organ building during a four year apprenticeship with the Rieger Company in his native Austria. He immigrated to the United States in 1981 and worked with several organ builders until he opened his own shop.
