Database Manager on February 08, 2014:

This is a rebuild of an existing organ. Identified by James R. Stettner, based on personal knowledge of the organ. -- This was a project of enlargement and mechanical upgrades. 15 new Kilgen-style E-P unit chests were built replacing all of the 1916 Kimball chests except for the Pedal windchests. Almost all of the existing Kimball and other added pipework was retained - either in original or rescaled/altered form. A new solid state combination action was installed in he 1959 console, and solid state relay switching replaced all existing electro-mechanical and/or electro-pneumatic functions. The organ was prepared for an additional 9 ranks.
