The Great Stalacpipe Organ appears at first to be a normal organ, but instead of using pipes, the organ is wired to soft rubber mallets poised to gently strike stalactites of varying lengths and thicknesses. When the keyboard is played, the entire subterranean landscape becomes a musical instrument.

The Great Stalacpipe Organ is located deep within Luray Caverns and was completed in 1956 after three years of work by Leland W. Each key is wired to a solenoid-actuated rubber mallet that is connected to one of 37 diferent stalatites scattered around . acres of the caverns. When a key is pressed, the mallet strikes the stalactite. The result is a very clear, pure tone that bears a resemblance to a xylophone or a lithophone. All of the stalactites, despite spreading over only . acres of the caverns, can be heard over all 64 acres of the caverns' interior.

The Great Stalacpipe Organ. In 1954, on his 5th birthday, Robert Sprinkle was given a choice by his father, Leland Sprinkle: have a traditional birthday party, or take a tour of one of Virginia’s most famous caves, Luray Caverns. Robert chose the cave tour, and soon the Sprinkle family descended below the surface of the small town of Luray to view its main attraction. Underneath the town of Luray, he had built his legacy, after navigating so many twists, turns and false starts in the years prior. He was always very kind to me, says John Shaffer, Luray Caverns’ marketing director, who has been there for forty years. He was always taking time to show a little kid like me why something worked.

This most unique, one-of-a-kind instrument was invented in 1954 by Mr. LeIand W. Sprinkle of Springfield, Virginia, a mathematician and electronic scientist at the Pentagon. Electronic mallets were wired throughout the caverns and connected to a large four-manual console. When a key is depressed, a tone occurs as the rubber-tipped plunger strikes the stalactite tuned to concert pitch
