Happy New Year!

Happy New Year to all of our clients and friends!

The fall was busy with several projects, including:

-Releathering of all pouches and schwimmers for a Holtkamp/Steiner-Reck in Columbus, Indiana

-Brand-new mechanics, switching system, combination action and keyboards for a 1929 Wangerin in Indianapolis. This project has been neat for us to work on, both to fit new Solid State components into the old console shell and to visit the broadly-scaled Wangerin pipework. We also added a capped Oboe, replacing the synthetic “Oboe” on the original specification made from the Salicional and Bourdon at 2 2/3’ pitch.

-Releathering the stop action pneumatics of a Holloway in Lebanon
-New static reservoir and Flauto Dolce for Tom Wood’s organ in Bloomington

In addition to finishing work on the Wangerin, we are now turning to some prepared work at
Opus 46 in Germantown. We are currently building and voicing the 44-note wooden Posaune pipes and chest for the Pedal division, as well as adding the digital 32’ stops. Gravitas will descend on Memphis very soon!
