Database Manager on January 01, 2006:

Identified through online information from James R. Stettner. -- This was an electrification of the church's existing Kimball pipe organ. The organ seems to have been relocated to the left, front corner of the sanctuary. The case and façade are slightly modified and no longer symmetrical, and the façade pipes have been painted a drab color. The interior of the organ seems to have also been slightly rearranged, but no tonal changes were made. The console appears to be from a supply house. The original 30-note pedal ranks were expanded by adding two pipes to each rank on new chests. A 25-note set of Deagan chimes is playable from the Great, compass G 20 - g44. The Swell 8' Vox Humana action tubes are not connected, and the rank remains silent.
