Organ Nieuwaal in our assembly hal

The organ for Nieuwaal is ready in our assembly hall. The organ case was made in 1909 by Maarschalkerweerd & Son. The interior was renewed in 1967 by Willem van Leeuwen. The organ case has been restored and the organ has been overhauled, expanded and revoiced.

Pipework restoration Rijsoord completed

pijwerk gerestaureerd

Organ builder C.G.F. Witte constructed the new organ in 1864. It was an organ with two manuals and a permanentely coupled pedal. The instrument was inaugurated on April 24, 1864 by J.H. Paling of Rotterdam. On March 11, 1923 a fire hit the church and damaged the organ. Sanders restored the instrument.

Standaart worked in the organ in 1929 and replaced the Trompet for a new one. More works were done by De Koff (1951) and A. Verduyn (1957 and 1963), but no major change were carried out.

In 1973 J.L. van den Heuvel Orgelbouw added an independant pedal of two stops to the organ and carried out some maintenance work. Also the zinc trumpet resonators were renewed in organ metal. Feike Asma performed the re-inauguration recital on Oktober 17, 1973.

In 1992 the complete organ was dismantled and shipped to Van den Heuvel in Dordrecht for a complete revision. The double rise bellow has been re-leathered and the windchest has been restored so that it is windproof again. The Salicet 2' of the second manual was moved back to its original pitch of 4', luckely the original bass pipes were kept at the organ. The organ was re-inaugurated on April 4, 1992.

The pipework was restored in 2022. The tuning systems were repaired or renewed. Pipe feet have been partly renewed where corrosion had occurred. The gaskets of the covered wooden and metal pipes are also renewed. After cleaning of the pipes, the voicing has been checked and leveled.

Assembly organ Sneek

Sneek2022 400x300

The church council of the Protestant Congregation in Sneek has developed a plan to make the Martinikerk future-proof and multifunctional with a renovation. In the design by architect Kijlstra-Brouwer from Beetsterzwaag, the elliptical, green extension between the bell tower and the church building stands out. Much is being renovated and added on the inside. In 2021 the choir organ was disassembled and stored at the organ builder.

For the new location in the church building, the organ case had to be enlarged to accommodate the Soubasse, which previously stood invisibly in a niche in the wall behind the organ. The opportunity was taken to place the Montre (which was partly in the front and partly in the swell box) completely outside the swell box. The lead tubing for the offset pipes is renewed, the action revised and the voicing checked.

House organ for sale (14/IIP)

front website

The organ was built during the period 1987~1989 by Louis Huivenaar (the well known reed-organ restorer located at Dieren, NL) for the residence of the Schalkoort Family. Louis Huivenaar partly used parts of used and historical materials in this instrument. In 2013 the organ builder carried out technical maintenance. The owner offers his pipe organ for sale because he can no longer use the organ optimally in his new terraced house.

The organ case is made of mahogany. The shaped key-cheeks are made of coromandel wood. The key coverings are made from bird eye maple and ebony. The coupling operation takes place by moving the cheeks.

Van den Heuvel-Orgelbouw was requested to find a suitable place for this organ. The organ is immediately available. The asking price of the owner is Euro 26,900. No VAT is payable on the purchase amount as the organ is sold by a private person! The costs for dismantling and transfer are at the expense of the buyer. If desired, Van den Heuvel-Orgelbouw can be of service to you.
