Database Manager on November 22, 2011:

Identified through online information from Bryan Dunnewald. -- Instrument Built in historical style. Very nice sound in a decent acoustic. the pedal/manual compass lacks a low c-sharp, giving the compass C,D-d ect. The project was constructed using old methods from North Germany. In good condition as of 2011.
