Database Manager on September 04, 2005:

Online update from David Kinyon -- The instrument is in need of a good cleaning, but otherwise intact and used on a regular basis. The manuals are very heavy, especially when coupled and almost to hard to press keys. It has an ancient one octave electronic chimes keyboard attached to the side that doesn't work well. The orignial water pump is there though disconnected. It sits in a small, dead room.
