  • Identified by Jeff Scofield through information in Möller factory documents. (Database Manager. August 30, 2007)
  • Updated through online information from Jeff Scofield. (Database Manager. November 17, 2011)
  • Updated through online information from Hunter Godsey. -- In 2010-2011, the lowest seven pipes of the 16' Contrebass in the pedal had to be replaced because of metal fatigue that caused these pipes to lean and lose ability to speak properly. Additionally, expression shades were added to the case holding the the stops on the Great manual for greater flexibility. A zymbelstern was added in the 1990s that is activated by a toe piston.
