1937 Frazee Pipe Organ

Here is the sanctuary. The organ pipes are behind the 3 windows at the front with the gold grill cloth. The console is just sticking out on the stage on the right. It was tucked in at some point to make more room for the choir.

Swell reservoir, and the ends of the swell sliders



















Swell regulator, swell slider motors, and patching the leather on the oboe slider motor.































The pedal division: 2 ranks. The back row is the 16' Open Wood basses, then a row of 16' Bourdons, then a row of Open Wood trebles. On the offset chest to the side are the trebles to the Bourdon.

































The great division: These open diapason basses still have their Woodberry stenciling on them, though no longer presentable. Some have been painted black where they would be in view without the grill cloth. Apparently the church must have tried having no grill cloth because there is a lot of black paint to try to hide various organ parts, and it must have still been considered unsatisfactory visually because the grill cloth was finally added.

The great trumpet sounds amazing.

The access hatch to the chamber, the most generous I've encountered yet!
