Database Manager on June 22, 2005:

From Edward Odell: The instrument is in extremely good physical condition, and to our knowledge is the only extant Odell organ with tubular-pneumatic action. By contrast, most surviving Odell instruments originally built with tubular-pneumatic action were electrified and fitted with modern consoles.
The manual wind chests are pneumatically controlled slider chests, with pneumatically controlled stop sliders. The sole alteration was replacement of the original flat pedal board with a radiating and concave pedalboard. This work was done by our firm in 1957. The organ has had limited restorative work done but is otherwise unaltered.
