Notes

  • Identified through online information from Andrew Schaeffer. -- This entry describes a modification (including electric action and a new console) to an existing pipe organ.
    The original console has been replaced by a used 1950's Wicks console and was moved away from the organ case. Most all of the pipework is intact with the exception of the Vox Humana which was replaced with a Trumpet a few years ago. The instrument was originally powered by a water pump. (Database Manager.
