Database Manager on January 23, 2008:

Updated through online information from william rowland. -- This Organ is now being sold on Ebay. It is apparently in need of releathering and the people selling it seem to know little to nothing about organs. They claim it goes out of tune frequently/easily. Most Jardines do not. Apparently the church is not giving the instrument time to adapt and tuning on heat and cooling at the last minute. I have been told that it is being sold and being replaced by an electronic. -- Apparently this Organ has been traded several times and has acquired a full modern pedal somewhere along the line. Its sister organs do not extend up to high G but stop as short as the C below in some instruments.
