First Presbyterian Church - Opus 54

Newton, Iowa
3 manuals, 27 ranks; Year complete: 2001

The pipe organ for the First Presbyterian Church of Newton, Iowa, built by Quimby Pipe Organs, Inc., is a three manual instrument of 27 ranks. The Great and Swell are located at the front of the church, above and to the right of the rostrum area, behind a fa├žade of speaking and non-speaking Principal pipes. The Pedal 16' wood Subbass forms a functional display on the opposite front side. Both Great and Swell employ Quimby-style electro-pneumatic slider windchests. An Echo division from the previous Austin organ was redesigned and located in its existing chamber, speaking into the balcony.
