My Tracker Pipe Organ Project

The building of this organ was intended to be my project for my retirement years.

It was my intention to build a one manual tracker pipe organ with attached pedal, somewhat like the above, but in a more modern, but still classical case.

Organ design with doors closed. 82" high, 52" wide.

The organ consisted of 9 1/2 Ranks (516 pipes).

The disposition was as follows:

54 keys divided keyboard

4' Flute 4' Rohrflute
