New Instrument

Shandon Presbyterian Church

Columbia, SC

Dedicatory recital by Timothy Belk, November 2, 2018

This is our largest instrument built to-date. It was featured on the cover of The American Organist magazine in February of 2018. The organ is a pure tracker, with electric stop action controlled by electronic caption system boasting 10,000 memory levels. All pipework is new except for Subbas 16’, Contre Viole 16’ and Clarinet 8’, which were preserved as a “bridge-over” from the previous organ (M. P. Moller from 1975). The French terrace console has a low height enabling good visibility for both the organist and the choir. The organ has 47 stops, 59 ranks, divided between three manuals and a pedal, featuring a total of 3,075 pipes.
