What Our Clients Say
– David Di Fiore, Organist
I have had the honor of playing several of Mr. Bosman’s instruments. The organs are clear and clean, excellent for the music of the Baroque, but full bodied enough for the Romantic repertoire as well. His instruments are works of art. Each stop is beautifully attended to; each note is crafted to a fine degree. The ensemble is thrilling as well; each stop contributing exactly as it should. These traits describe all his instruments, though none of them sound exactly like the others. All are beautifully crafted creations, full of color, and well suited to the room they were designed for.
– William A. Palendini, Organist
Frans is a master at voicing. Professional organists, in fact, have expressed surprised when they learn that most of the pipes are not original to the instrument but are instead carefully selected acquisitions from historical organs, revoices to meet the acoustical requirements of our particular church. Each stop has its own individual character and the the ensemble blends well. The organ leads and supports congregational singing without overpowering and performs beautifully as a solo instrument. Voicing and toning have been remarkably stable, a concern in our Northwest climate.
– Delbert Saman, Organist
Frans Bosman’s restoration work has resulted in an instrument considerably improved over the original, both in terms of the mechanism and the artistic character of the instrument. What I have seen of his organs during construction can only be described as being made of the finest materials, of thoughtful traditional design, and with painstaking attention to detail in the manner of the great European builders whose work is still heard and admired today, often after 300+ years of use.
– Christopher A. Maddock, Director of Music at St. Joseph's Church in Seattle
It is with great pleasure that I recommend to you Mr. Frans Bosman. He has proven himself most competent, more than reliable, and utterly honest. Frans distinguishes himself from most in that he looks on his work as an art, and thus commits himself to it more than one would a business or craft, and he cares for his workmanship with great zeal. I can assure you that Frans has the best interest of the instrument at heart when he takes on any job.
– James Blundell

– Karl J. E. Bigler
I have played on several instruments that Frans has either restored or newly constructed. I am so impressed with his ability that Frans now maintains the pipe organ in my home. He is fair, honest, hard-working, conscientious, law-abiding, and his personal character is of the highest quality. Frans’ technical skills and abilities coupled with his outstanding character have earned him a well deserved excellent reputation in the Pacific Northwest.
