Tryon Presbyterian Church Organ
The church’s Moller organ has four divisions playable from a three manual and pedal movable console located in the choir loft chancel area. Swell and Positive divisions are located in four tiers behind the reredos. The exposed Great and Pedal divisions are located on each side of the reredos.
Pipes are also located on platforms behind rock walls on each side of the choir loft. In 2017 the organ was completely refurbished and the new (movable) organ console was added. The Swell Division pipes were removed and replaced by all digitals. To date, there are now 19 ranks of existing pipes and 33 new digital ranks for a total of 1,669 pipes.
The organ also has a sequencer with the capability to record a player’s performance and replay the organ automatically. This renovation was completed by Cornell Zimmer Organ Builders from Denver, NC.
