First Presbyterian Vancouver, Washington

Built in 1983 by the Van Zoeren pipe organ company, this 3 manual 44 rank instrument began to experience keying and stop problems. Rose City Organ Builders installed a new Syndyne relay system which required the removal of all pipe work to access the windchests. All the topboards were taken to our shop and rewired from the individual direct electric valves.

The console was also brought to our shop in Portland and was equipped with all new key contacts, rocker tabs, thumb pistons, and potentiometers for the swell expression shoes. In total, over 12 miles of new copper wire was used to rebuild this system to over 5,000 electrical connections! A new touch screen on the console provides vast resources for the organist to control the organ and its included MIDI capabilities.
