Updated through online information from John Igoe. -- Restored by Quimby Pipe Organs, Inc.
From Quimby web site:
"Restoration work on church's 1883 Moline tracker organ. Restoration of original reed ranks with new spotted metal bells, cleaned, lacquered, and accomplished corrective voicing. Replaced pipe feet on all common metal flue pipes where feet had collapsed with age."
Updated through online information from Joseph Adam. -- The Keralouphon in the Choir division is original to the organ, and is not similar to a bell gamba. The Dulciana is made of spotted metal (the only pipes in the organ that are spotted metal), and are suspected to have been replaced during the 1940s rebuild by Kilgen. All other pipework is believed to be original.
Updated through online information from Kurt E. Juhl. -- The pedalboard is a "short" pedalboard - 2 octaves, plus 2 notes. The pedal rollerboard and chests were rebuilt (2004-2005) by Phil Hoenig of Fort Madison. The other chests and action will be repaired as time and money allows. The key action, especially when coupling the manuals together, is very stiff.
