Updated through online information from Scot Huntington. -- The instrument utilizes fiberglass trackers. The bottom 32 notes of the Great 16' are on a unit chest to permit duplexing to the pedal.

Updated through on-line information from robert grant. -- I am the architect who designed the renovations to the Colgate Memorial Chapel where this instrument is located. I worked with Chick Holtkamp to facilitate coordinating the instrument's installation with new renovations to the auditorium. I've indicated information about the instrument as I recall after many years of having seen or played it. Any number of the selections could be inaccurate. It is "tracker action" to what degree I'm not certain. Its very unusual contemporary design, as Chick was wont to do at the time, contrasts sharply with the Georgian interior of the chapel, details which I followed faithfully in the renovations. There was a "bumping of the heads" over this with Chick winning out. It is "odd" in appearance, but the more I saw of it later, the more I grew to like it. It is impressive, with beautiful tonal design, which overcomes the depressing acoustics in the room. It was a joy to work with Chick even though our disagreements were many and often less than cordial. Neither of us took it personally, and we remained friends until Chick's death.
