Organ Renovation and New Winding System
Basilica of the Sacred Heart
Organ renovation project
The work involved thorough renovation of the 1916 Moller Organ located at the Basilica of the Sacred Heart in Syracuse, NY. We have been hired to bring this instrument back to life from a state of dire disrepair. The entire winding system had to be replaced. We built two brand new reservoir bellows that supply an ample amount of wind to all windchests. We also replaced all of the wind conduits. In addition, we restored the original Trumpet 8’ from the Great division – the stop that has been removed during the seventies and was stored in some truly horrific conditions. Lastly, cleaning of all pipes and windchests was performed, followed by voicing touch-up and complete tuning of the entire instrument.
