However, they did very occasionally build some stunningly fine organs. One I particularly liked is the instrument at St. Justrin's, Hartford, Connecticut. I haven't seen your instrument, but I imagine it as being like that one only bigger, in which case it probably is a world class instrument.   John Speller, St. Louis, Missouri.

They were, in a word, garbage. Some of their theater organs were pretty lame, also, but some were pretty good!   DeserTBoB
