Delmar Presbyterian Church

The new organ replaces the church's previous instrument, which was a 5 rank Wicks that was located to one side in the rear of the church (see photos below). It is centered in the rear of the church on a newly constructed raised wood floor, which also has seating for the choir.

All windchests are new utilizing 1 3/4" solid poplar toeboards and expansion cell electro-mechanical action. Electro-pneumatic action is used for all larger pipe actions.

The organ case is constructed from solid red oak in thicknesses from 3/4" to 1 1/4". The Wicks console was retained, but received a complete rebuilding with new contacts, a new tilting tablet stop rail with maple faces and a new solid state combination action and coupler system.

The entire case and all winchests were constructed in our shop. All pipe voicing was done in our voicing room and on location.
