Complete Re-engineering and Tonal Revivification

This organ had potential; however, because of less-than-ideal layout in the chambers and difficulty in access, it was decided to re-configure each organ chamber completely.  David Brown, Shop Foreman, personally re-engineered the entire organ layout.  This necessitated new reservoirs in each division, and the fabrication of new support systems, ladders, bearers and the like.  During this phase, the organ wind pressure was regulated and all pipes were adjusted for proper speech and attack.  Further, all the chests were rewired and, in a previous phase of the project, the console and relays were redone with new circuitry, and the pedal board was restored.
