Updated by Oliver J. Finch, who has heard or played the organ.
\r\nThe Ruffatti organ was originally 2-manuals with the Great division being split as enclosed and unenclosed. A new 3-manual Austin console was ordered through David Finch, Austin Representative, in 1998. The enclosed part of the Great was renamed the Choir division for the 3rd manual. There are stoptabs that are prepared-for in hopes of having a complete stoplist. This Austin console has the last mechanical combination action they made and was purchased specifically for that reason.
\r\nMy Father (David Finch) installed the console in 1998 and services this organ on a regular basis and it is still in good condition.
Interesting note: the organ has two solo Trumpet stops. A Trompette en Chamade was added shortly after the organ was installed by Ruffatti. The \"hooded\" Trompette de Fête 8\' in the Great wasn\'t sufficient as a solo stop, so the en Chamade was added shortly after. There are also a few electronic stops built by Rodgers Organs which include three 32\' Pedal stops.
Renovated by someone in 1998, at which time a 3-manual Austin console was added.We received the most recent update for this note from Database Manager on April 09, 2020.
