As Dublin Presbyterian Church was contemplating replacement of their electronic organ with a pipe organ, a 1990 Schantz became available. Because every pipe organ is designed and built specifically for its home, comprehensive modifications are often necessary when relocating an instrument. With both sanctuaries similar in size and acoustic, Muller knew that Dublin would be a good second home for this modest, well-balanced church organ.
Because every pipe organ is designed and built specifically for its home, modifications are usually necessary when relocating an instrument. Tonally, the organ was a perfect fit; no major voicing changes were necessary; in fact, the high ceiling and hard surfaces at Dublin Presbyterian enhanced the tonal qualities of the organ.
A New Look
Visually, the organ needed a new case to complement its new home. Muller and the organ committee worked together to develop a suitable design. The case was custom-built by our artisans. New façade pipes replace their original counterparts. Minor mechanical changes were made to accommodate the revised physical layout of the organ.
