Database Manager on December 26, 2014:

Updated through online information from Jim Keyes. -- I played this organ to accompany a one-man production of "A Christmas Carol" on December 19th, 2014. The organ functioned quite well, although the keyboard action could use some attention. It is a quiet and sweet organ. The performer was able to do the show without needing any amplification to be heard over the organ. Even with all the stops out and coupled, it's not what you would call "thunderous." Nevertheless, it was a joy to play and I can't wait for the opportunity to play it again.
