    Cost of wood vs metal pipes

    Hello

    I'm thinking of building a small pipe organ in my home for practice. Can anybody give me a rundown of the cost of a rank of metal flue pipes vs a rank of wood flue pipes? thanks

    New? Used? Compass (61 pipes for a 8' Gedeckt, 73 pipes for 16 and 8, 85 for 16, 8, and 4)....well you get the gist of it. Almost all pipe organ tuners/builders have used sets of pipes available, in various conditions. almost everything you would need to put together a small pipe organ can be gotten on the "previously owned" market, much from your local builder/tuner at all varying price points.
