MOCKSVILLE, N.C. -- Tom Lewtak and his team often spend 18 months or more creating the 'king' of instruments at Lewtak Pipe Organ Builders.

"It is the most powerful instrument ever created by humans. There's nothing like it," Lewtak exclaimed.

His Mocksville-based business makes pipe organs from scratch, working out of a former mill in the town of Cooleemee.

"The range is tremendous, from the low bases to the highest whistles.The huge volume of music and the mass of the instrument and everything, it is kind of what overwhelms us," Lewtak said.
