Built with mechanical action and on cone-valve chests (kegelladen as introduced by E. F. Walcker to wide acceptance ca. 1845, largely replacing pallet and slider windchests in Germany), this 16-stop organ of 18 ranks built by Walcker in 1860 for the Protestant church in Mimbach, Germany, shares many tonal resources which are characteristic of German-American builders working in the mid-19th-century:  a 9-stop Manual I of 54 notes C-f including Mixtur, four 8' stops, two 4' stops, a Quint, 2' Octav, and 3-rk Mixtur. The unenclosed Manual II has four stops: 8-8-8-4. With three stops, 16-16-8, the Pedal of 27 notes is larger than similarly sized American organs built in New England and New York, but typical of builders like Matthias Schwab and John George Pfeffer of St. Louis. There are no reed stops, also similar to the work of American builders placing organs where there may be no one available to tune reed stops. The Mimbach organ was restored as built in 2017 by the Swiss firm of Kuhn, reversing its "disfigurment" (the term used in the CD booklet!) in 1965 in the style of the day. The 20-page booklet includes notes on the music, the church, and the organ in German and English.
