Randall Dyer built his first instrument as a 2/3 practice organ for Carson-Newman College Jefferson City, Tennessee, 1967. Randall Dyer & Associates, an organ service firm dates from that same year. The Dyer firm was the representative of Reuter Organ Co. of Lawrence, Kansas, from 1969 through 1982; handling sales, installation and service throughout a six-state southern region.

In 1981, the Dyer company became a full service builder, building and rebuilding electric and electro-pneumatic slider and pallet instruments. The firm was incorporated in 2000 as Randall Dyer & Associates, Inc. and is currently active with 100 Dyer organs in the field. Dyer has gradually expanded sales outside the region with new instruments in 15 states as of December 2015. They range in size from three-rank practice organs to the rebuild and enlargement of the three-manual, 53 rank Aeolian-Skinner at the Church Street United Methodist Church of Knoxville, Tennessee to a four-manual instrument of 84 ranks.
