Organ tuning

September 2016

Following the resignation of Nicholas Pitts, the twice yearly organ tuning has been contracted to David Jones.

 

His first visit was on Friday, September 9, when he was met by organist John Saunders who told him about the organ's recent past and some of the issues which had been encountered, and the remedial work carried out by Henry Groves and Son earlier this year.

 

After inspecting the organ and tuning it, David reported that the organ was overall in good condition, although he did report that access to the tracker mechanism to the Great Open Diapason is made difficult because of the positioning of the electro-pnuematic switches.
