The new instrument for Memorial Lutheran builds on the resources of the previous instrument, which had become unreliable. The pipes were repaired, revoiced, and rescaled to achieve the new cohesive, musical ensemble necessary for solo literature and inspiring worship. Additional pipes were introduced, including those in the facade, to augment and expand the instrument's tonal resources.
New electro-pneumatic windchests were designed and constructed in the Marceau shop, emulating the speech of a mechanical action organ. A new winding system was designed and installed making use of wedge bellows for expressive air supply. Wooden keyboards with "tracker touch," a solid state multi-level combination action, and MIDI are included in the refurbished console.
The three manual, 35 stop, 46 rank instrument is located in the rear gallery and includes a simple facade of polished tin from the 8' Principal. The facade and remodeled chambers project the sound of the 2,640 pipes into the room.
