Eamonn Clarke on August 14, 2021:

A prior note mentions the existence of a homemade zimbelstern on this organ. I last played the organ in June of 2018; at that time, while a zimbelstern control existed, it was not functioning. A brief examination of the pipe chamber by myself and the church organist yielded no results; the church organist is also unfamiliar with the existence of a zimbelstern. (Ed. Note: the zimbelstern was there when the organ was under the care of Meadway & Stettner Pipe Organs ca. 1994).

Database Manager on January 01, 2006:

Identified through on-line information from James R. Stettner. -- The organ was originally built for Our Saviour's Lutheran at 24th & Colby in Everett, Washington. It was installed there by Möller representative Ernest Kuhn. When that congregation built a new edifice, they contracted for a new Casavant, and the Möller was sold to First Presbyterian in Ellensburg. It was installed here by Roman Guenther/Guenther Organ Co. of Portland, Oregon in 1967. In later years, Möller representative Harold B. Curryer of Spokane, Washington added a homemade Zimbelstern made from glass windchimes and actuated by the Great Unison drawknob. Additionally, the Great to Pedal reversible toestud was altered to be a Sw. to Ped. reversible toe stud, though the original label remains.
