Continuing installation at Theatr Soar Merthyr Tydfil

We have been installing the mechanism in the 1893 Peter Conacher organ.  The wind system has two reservoirs and is powered by hand, water engine (restored by James Richardson Jones) or electric blower.  The pneumatic Pedal key action, supplied in 1938 with two extra stops, has been replaced with a new mechanical key action copied from Conacher models.  The organ only has 20 stops, but is generously laid out over four ‘storeys’, the wind system in the basement, the console and mechanism on the ground floor, the Great on the first floor and the Swell on the second floor.
