Database Manager on June 17, 2011:

Updated through online information from Ronald Crowl. -- One of Hinners' electro-pneumatic slider instruments, with Gottfried pipework. Chimes original, but of unknown origin, enclosed in odd box. Noisy and slow action. Overall sound of the organ is almost overpowering in the room. Installed in side choir loft area of "Akron-style" building behind elaborate facade containing low octaves of Open Diapason and Dulciana with magnificent wood working.
