    Update: I have started building a three octave camber organ at a prototype, and have the keyboard, pallets and wind chest assembled. The next job will be to create the stop action and pipework.

    This an educational, two-octave instrument with two ranks of pipes. Only three have been built by organ builders in the US and two in Belgium, I believe, and at at a cost of $7,500 USD each.
