Pictured above is the mechanical action Visser-Rowland organ in the First United Methodist Church , Bainbridge , Georgia . In 1985 when the organ was installed, V.R. removed the chimes placing them in a neat stack behind the instrument until October 2007 at which time the church commissioned our firm to install them as depicted in the above photo. Our company reconditioned the canopy, action and tubes in the shop and engineered a unique "cam & actuator" system allowing them to be playable from the Great keyboard trackers. The electrical system employed by the organ to operate the slider motors has a common positive return. The chime action required a common negative for operation therefore, we provided a separate power supply for them.

Electric action allows for any tube placement desired. As pictured above and to the right, two different configurations are illustrated. The example to the right is our installation in the First United Methodist Church of Bowdon, Georgia (see Consoles page). Other variations are only as limited as one's imagination.

Suitable as a memorial gift or honorarium, Chimes are an effective adjunct to any worship service providing a means by which the service hour may be “chimed” or other service function initiated. Available in 21 or 25 note configurations or customized to your specifications.
