Swell Pipes`

These are some of the pipes of the Swell division. At the left are the offset pipes of the 16' Lieblich, 8' Viola, and 16' Trombone. To the right is the 8' Flute.

First sounds

The facade pipes went in today. They are temporarily held in place byt ties until the hooks are installed on the backs. They also will get cleaned and then painted gold.

The console is assembled and wired with all the new equipment. The organ case and internal parts are complete. The pipes are going in starting tomorrow. Soon there'll be music!

Chest Magnets

Here we are mounting and wiring the chest magnets to the underside of the toeboards. Each white electromagnet opens a valve to admit air to one pipe.


The case is complete! The finish will be applied once the organ has been taken down. Toeboards and pipes are now being installed.
