“Not Quite a Martini, perhaps a Gimlet?”

Walter Holtkamp Sr. was an innovative genius who made meaningful contributions to the liberation of pipe organ sound in the middle of the twentieth century. His trademark visual designs with most of an instrument’s pipes exposed were his reaction to the concealment of organs in remote chambers. He experimented with low wind pressure and created specifications with plenty of mutations, and built the first American Ruckpositiv divisions. This is a seven-rank unit organ, three of which combine to form a Mixture adding the brilliance of a real Mixture to a unified specification. Appropriate for small church or residence, Holtkamp organs of similar design are popular as practice instruments in University organ departments. Organ Clearing House director John Bishop recalls countless hours of practice on the nearly ubiquitous Holtkamp Martini model, very similar to this instrument.
