Updated through online information from James R. Stettner. -- A private message from a Wisconsin resident and theatre organ enthusiast (who wishes to remain anonymous) said, "Additional ranks at the Gilson studio would be: English Horn, Horn Diapason, Salicional, Voix Celeste, Krumet, Spitzflute, Spitzflute Celeste and Trompette en Chamade. I believe the original Dulciana was not included. Gilson also had a set of 32' Diaphone beaters and built new resonators for the set."
