Database Manager on January 22, 2019:

In 1998, Petty-Madden converted the combination action and relay system to solid state and replaced the console; the organ was completely restored by Emery Brothers in 2013, with Bynum Petty as consultant; some tonal changes were made at that time, including the addition of eight Walker digital stops.
