Reformed Church - Germantown, NY

The new organ is a complete rebuild of a 1921 tubular-pneumatic Estey.

The console was rebuilt with 2 reconditioned keyboards, a new multi-memory combination action and a new tilting tablet stop rail. The original Estey pedalboard was completely reconditioned with a new contact rail built and custom fitted. Also added - a new lighted music rack and pedal light. The console features an Automatic Pedal stop, which when active plays the lowest note being played on the manual on the pedal stops. This allows keyboard-only players to achieve the full sound of the pedal notes.

The new Great and Swell windchests utilize 1 3/4" solid poplar toeboards and expansion cell electro-mechanical action.

2 new ranks of pipes were added. All existing pipework was revoiced. A real reed Oboe was installed in place of the synthetic Estey Oboe.

As part of the rebuild, all the Estey gold case pipes were repaired and re-painted.
