This entry describes alterations to an existing organ. Identified by Shawn P. Keith, based on personal knowledge of the organ. --
Organ incorporates all pipework, casework, and main chest shells of the original Reinisch organ. New wind regulators, Pedal chests, Peterson solid-state relay, Peterson Chimes, Pedal 8' Principal, and Zimbelstern. Manual chests converted to Peterson electric action. Pedal compass increased from 30 to 32 notes with additional pipes. Wind pressures increased from 3" to 4" throughout (per Larry Bahr), with original voicing partially altered before voicer passed away. Voicing work remains incomplete. Original console replaced with new three-manual console by Austin in 1985. Third (Choir) manual is completely prepared for, with blank tabs except for couplers. The Pedal division was greatly expanded by unification from the Great division when the electric action conversion took place.
