Updated through on-line information from Carl Kishline. -- In the 1977 installation and modification, the Haskell 8' Oboe was replaced with an 8' Krummhorn (Organ Supply). This change was noted as regrettable by David Dahl, the original consultant, in preparation for a 2003 recital. The pneumatic stop action uses Haskell's patented system, having a miniature "keyboard" above the swell. Each stop is drawn by depressing the white key which latches down. The stop is retired by pressing the adjacent black key that releases the latch. The inscription is on the vertical front face of the stopkey. It is illustrated in volume 2 of Audsley, however Audsley's illustration has curved fronts and these are flat. The fixed combination action is presently disabled, but all pieces are present. The organ was originally water blown. An electric blower was added in the early 1900s. That blower was replaced with a Meidinger blower in the 1977 installation. The wind pressure has been altered several times, it is presently at 3" WC, based on trials with getting the best pipe speech. The resulting pitch is A=435 at 70F.
Updated through on-line information from James R. Stettner. -- The organ was installed with tonal changes by Glenn White of Seattle. The cost, including delivery, installation, and tonal changes was about $10,000.00. The Great 8' Aeoline was replaced with a new 4' Octave, adn the Great 4' Violina was replaced with a new 2' Principal. On the Swell, a new 8' Oboe was provided according to the 1980 OHS convention booklet notes. However, an 8' Krummhorn is in the organ now.
Status Note: There 1982.
