One of the most iconic Wurlitzer organs and consoles, the Fisher Wurlitzer, is still running on its original air console and 1928 relay. Because of the immense size of the console and number of pneumatics, the combination action has suffered for decades, starving for air, slow to respond, and often not able to keep up with a performer. As a solution to this problem, we built a custom sized Wurlitzer replica reservoir in a size the company never made, but was a perfect solution and quickly alleviated the issues, and the combination action is now as fast, if not faster, than any modern electronic system. Because of the historic status and significance of this organ, the air console has been kept completely intact, and electrification of the console was completely out of the question
