KIMBALL 8 Rank Pipe Organ
A very nice small pipe organ with an updated blower, relay, wind reservoir and chest giving it another 100 years of life. This instrument came from a church in rural Wisconsin, and was moved to a private museum in Ohio. The organ was rebuilt when it moved to Ohio. And the pipes now sit on direct-electric chests, with exception of the pedal bourdon. Overall, the tone is warm and rich. It fills the room nicely without overpowering. The keys are the original Kimball keys intended for the original tubular pneumatic action and are in good condition. Console is in very good condition. To get reed tone without the tuning problems of a real reed an Estey Oboe-Gamba was added on a new chest which sits on top of the swell box. (and is not under expression). This is a tenor C stop currently playing on the swell as a foil to the great Diapason. The Swell Gamba should originally have been a full compass 61 note stop, but the bottom octave was left out in the rebuild. The crescendo shoe does not function.

The swell is balanced mechanical. The instrument uses a Peterson Diode-Matrix switching system. The system could easily be expanded to make the current ranks available at different pitches, or to address additional pipe or. Electronic voices, such as Hauptwerk. All wiring is current where cables are intact and are plug and play type which allows easier re-install.

The case is quartered oak. There are 5 pipes in each of the corner towers. The remainder of the sides is quartered oak panel.

The Diapason is in the facade for 1-24, the remainder is in the single expression box, along with all of the other manual ranks. (except the Oboe-Gamba as previously noted). It fits in a 3 1/2 foot cube sound proof box. The blower was originally installed behind the instrument and can be relocated as needed.

8' Open Diapason (17 basses in facade, metal-61 pipes). SWELL (Manual II, 61 notes, Enclosed with Great).
