The Mart Vermeulen organ (1907) of the Reformed Church in Scherpenisse was restored in 2016. The restoration was carriedout as a preservative one. Both the organ case and all internal parts are cleaned and where necessary treated against woodworm. The technical restoration included re-leathering of the double folding bellow, replacing the telescope slider seals with 'Liegelinds' rings, placing the wind motor in a new enclosure, restoring the pipe work and re-racking the pipes on the windchests. Wires and leather nuts of the key action where, when necessary, renewed. The keydesk and stopknobs re-blackened. New oak walkboards were mounted behind the windchests. The irregularities in the voicing were corrected.

Work on the organ case as well as the painting of the rear and side walls was done by volunteers.
