Ooltgensplaat, Gereformeerde Kerk (2021)

In 1963 a new organ was built for the Reformed Church in Ooltgensplaat, the old organ that was built in 1953 and in poor condition due to the flood disaster. Organ consultant from the Disaster Fund was Willem Hülsmann. The organ was built by Leeflang & Keijzer. Because of the many works of the Leeflang company, the organ was delayed and installed in September 1965. Inauguration took place December 14, 1965. The organ was played by the consultant Willem Hülsmann.

In June 2021 the organ received a sound overhaul. In addition to voice damage repair, the works included replacing the paper and adhesive tape gaskets of the Holpijp 8' and Roerfluit 4' with felt gaskets. To this end, the hats have been shifted a semitone, new hats have been newly made for the largest pipes. The Mixture 1 1/3' 4-6ranks is replaced by a new Nasard 2 2/3'. The felt bearings of the pedal keyboard have also been renewed. The work has been completed with a general revoicing.
