Faith Rescaling

We were called in to evaluate a very small organ at Faith Lutheran in Prior Lake. Various electronic organ salesmen had declared the organ dead. In just a few hours we resurrected it. It was just in need of a standard service call. We found that it had originally been built for a practice room at Concordia College in Seward, Nebraska. Nobody knew when it was installed at Faith. Since it was designed for a practice room, the bass pipes were much too small to produce adequate bass for a church. We added larger pipes at the low end and cut off the original pipes to make them fat enough to produce adequate bass for the church.
