David Salomons Welte Organ Restoration
By Jurgen Goering

The restoration of the pneumatic player units for this magnificent
instrument was done by Thomas Jansen of the Musikwerkstatt Monschau,
Germany.  This task of pneumatic brain surgery included replacing 4 km
(almost three miles) of lead tubing.

A number of fascinating photos of the organ and the components undergoing
restoration can be found at
