Database Manager on November 24, 2017:

Updated by Steven Bartley, who maintains the organ.
Despite the quirky specification, the organ provides a good example of early German import organs. The tracker action is aluminum, and has been redesigned, from the original "string" key action. The imposing modern case, fits well in the mid-century A-frame church, though its construction, throughout is minimal. The voicing is mild and pleasant.
