Carrollton First United Methodist Church - Carrollton, Georgia

New 3-manual, 43-rank A E Schlueter pipe organ installed at Carrollton First United Methodist Church in Carrollton, Georgia

A. E. Schlueter Pipe Organ Company, Lithonia, Georgia, has installed a new pipe organ in Carrollton First United Methodist Church, in Carrollton, Georgia. The previous 14 rank instrument, which was installed in 1948, served the church until it was removed almost seven years ago. Most of the pipes were to be incorporated into a new organ. Unfortunately, the firm with whom the church originally contracted, was unable to fulfill the contract. After another search and interview process, the church determined that the Schlueter firm offered the best internal resources to complete a new organ in a timely manner. The church was impressed with the company’s completed instruments, manufacturing facilities, tonal finishing abilities, after the sale maintenance, and customer satisfaction. The specification was designed by the church organist, Tony Childers, and Arthur E. Schlueter, III, Vice-president, A. E. Schlueter Pipe Organ Company, Inc. The specification is from the French school with a traditional style drawknob console. The organ boasts twin faηade cases on either side of the chancel. The 8’ Montre speaks from the faηade. The console is driven by a state-of-the-art console control system with MIDI and digital record/playback capabilities.
