Tracker Organ, 2m, Catching Its Wind

This comes courtesy of PIPORG-L. Here's a YouTube visit with a 19th century two-manual British tracker organ built by Bevington and being refurbished. Fred Hohman demonstrates the organ's wind prostration caused by a malfunctioning blower and/or blown-out reservoir leather. There is a nice outcome for the organ as repaired by Patrick Murphy of Philadelphia.
