32' Sub Bourdon Pipes
Today the truck arrived from Wicks carrying the bottom five pipes for the 32' Sub Bourdon which is installed in the balcony of the church. These five notes have been missing since the original stop was installed a number of years ago. The pipes were lifted into the balcony by a local contractor. The largest pipe is roughly 18' long x 24" square with 2" thick walls and weighs in at about 420lbs! Here it is on the way up into the balcony.
