About Us







R.M. Ballantyne Pipe Organ’s is a family owned business started in 1984 by my father Edward M. Ballantyne, currently we maintain over 80 pipe organs in Southern California. Some of our restorative work has included the Kimball Pipe Organ in the Historic Mission Inn Hotel in Riverside, California, also the Historic Hinners Tracker organ that we installed in Ramona High School. We also have restored an Historic Murray Harris Pipe Organ his opus 2. We are also currently restoring the Kimball Pipe Organ in the Historic Angelus Temple in Los Angeles, California.

Ryan Ballantyne, a graduate of Brigham Young University-Idaho, was fascinated as a child with everything to do with the Pipe Organ. Along side my father I studied organ building while my family installed many organs in churches in this area. I also maintain an association with Manuel Rosales noted for his work on the Walt Disney Concert Hall Organ. I am in my 26th year of organ building. When I am not busy working on pipe organs I also enjoy spending time with my Wife Melissa, and our two boys Jacob 7, Andrew 4.

We would be pleased to help you with your next project.
