Database Manager on December 17, 2006:

Updated through online information from David Snyder. -- According to several sources, including Robert Noehren, there was NO Barker Machine or any kind of pneumatic action inside this organ. I know this is unbelievable, but I accept it as true. The organist who last knew it as a tracker organ told me it was nearly unplayable when coupled.
