Converse College

In the fall of 2008, we were pleased to be contracted by Converse College to return one of the Holtkamp organs to functioning status. The instrument was built in the 1970's, and is seven ranks over two manuals.

Upon our first inspection, we found this instrument to be in overall fine condition. There were a number of blown pneumatics that related to the control of the stops. We were able to recover some of these pneumatics during our most recent service visit to the college.

With a rapidly growing organ program, we are honored to be able to assist the college and Dr. Leon Couch III in the care of the four fine pipe organs on their campus.
