Database Manager on March 27, 2015:

Updated through online information from Jacob Haddock. -- In Spring 2014, a Cymbelstern was added to the organ. There is not a piston or stop specifically devoted to the cymbelstern; it is instead controlled using the "Swell Unison Off" stop. There are now 32 levels of digital memory for the presets.
