The Wicks continued to build instruments for the many small churches around the Illinois and Missouri countryside. Most of these organs are still playing today, a testament to the longevity of the Wicks DIRECT-ELECTRICÂ® action. Many people considered Wicks a builder of only small organs, but this is just one part of the Wicks history. Many large instruments have come out of the Wicks shop, including the 82 rank organ at First Baptist Church in Memphis, or the 92 rank instrument at Morehouse College in Atlanta, and Wicks has been proud to be part of many large restoration projects, such as the implementation of DIRECT-ELECTRICÂ® action in the Aeolian-Skinner organ in the National Cathedral in Washington, D.C., or the restoration and enlargement of the 118 rank Kilgen/MÃ¶ller instrument in the Cathedral Basilica in St. Louis.The first Wicks pipe organ is still playing today, proving that durability, reliability, and longevity are foundations of the Wicks Organ Company. Today the third generation of the Wick family oversees our extensive facilities and trained staff. The traditions of quality, innovation, and customer satisfaction continue today. Wicks is a bondable company, with a secure financial background, a rarity among organ building firms. We know our organs will be around for many years, and so will we.
At Wicks, We don't see ourselves as just an organbuilder, but as a team of organbuilders.
