February 2009 saw the completion of a residence organ for Peter Griffin of Harpswell, Maine.
The organ is an expanded version, based on our ELM model practice/teaching instrument. The organ features our three stop mechanical unit Pedal that begins with stopped wood pipes and changes to open metal with the voicing gradually ranging from a flute in the bass to a principal sound in the 4’ range. We have found this very effective in a small instrument.
The casework is solid cherry with case pipes of polished tin. The keyboards have bone naturals and ebony sharps. The drawkobs are pau ferro with engraved inserts. The key action and stop action are mechanical.
The visual design is by Don Olson, the mechanical design is by Michael Eaton and the tonal design and finishing is by John Morlock. Ben Mague was the Team Leader with Al Hosman, David Zarges, and David Michaud responsible for casework, windchests, and wind system. The tonal crew consisted of Don Glover, Jonathan Ross and Fay Morlock.
Mr. Griffin is a retired businessman and organ aficionado. He studies organ with Ray Cornils, Portland’s Municipal Organist.
