Database Manager on September 13, 2015:

Updated through online information from Clayton Logue. -- The Oberlinger tracker organ at St. John's was completely restored in October 2013 by master organbuilder Hans Ulrich-Erbsloah of Hamburg, Germany.

Hans rebuilt the Rohrshalmei and also replaced the defective slider coupler from Manual II to Manual I, and several minor voicing adjustments. Hans maintains our instrument about every year and a half when he visits Hawaii.
