Thumb conbination pistons below each manual - hold & set method Tower broadcasting system (removed sometime after 1995) ADDITIONAL NOTES This organ is buried in chambers in the upper right side of sanctuary nave and at a distance from the choir. A microphone was placed at the front of each chamber so that the sound could be amplified into the chancel choir area. It resulted in the instrument being amplified throughout the sanctuary. This was removed sometime after 1995 when a new sound system was installed; as a result the organ sounds much quieter than previously even when played at full volume. [Received from Timothy E.
