Wicks Opus 6001 – St. Matthew’s Instrument
A 1983 vintage instrument, this organ was originally built for St. Matthew’s in Alton, Illinois. It has 8 ranks of pipes with extensions. There is a 16’ Posaune and a 16’ Bourdon. The 16’ Rohr Gedeckt uses the same pipes as the 16’ Bourdon, but it opens smaller valves under the pipes to create a softer sound.
The Swell and Great divisions are divided and both have pipe facades. The Swell has an enclosure with expression shades. The relay is a diode matrix system and the console has a Peterson solid-state combination action. The instrument is in good condition and some minor repairs are included in the price.
Ideal setting: a small to medium-sized church
