Database Manager on October 09, 2009:

Updated through online information from Will Dunklin. -- During the summer of 2009 Barger and Nix added a combination action using an electronic memory system. B & N removed the mechanical "ventils" which were the organ's original combination action. Karl Wilhelm has repaired and/or replaced pipes in the bottom octave of the 16' pedal reed over the last decade due to metal fatigue/distortion.
