Database Manager on November 28, 2010:

Identified through online information from John Dill. -- In April of 2006 a new Zephyr blower was installed "inside" the organ along with a new regulator. The original blower was still in use up to that time but was located "outside" the building in the lawnmower shed that was built up against the building. The only other alterations to this instrument were new pedal contacts that were installed by Otto Hoffman. The organ was also cleaned at this time and one small bellows switch was re-leathered. With only the exceptions listed above, this instrument is original. There is NO record of this instrument ever being re-leathered nor is there any evidence of a re-leathering. The original blower and regulator are still in storage at the church. Each stop is ventiled like a Kilgen, the Voix Celeste uses pressure NOT to play and when engaged the ventil closes and the pressure is gone allowing leather to relax and the same air that plays the Echo Salicional is allowed to bleed into the Celeste. Therefor it, the Celeste, never plays without the Echo Salicional engaged as well.
