First United Church of Christ - Salisbury
North Carolina, USA
First United Church of Christ is located in Salisbury, NC (just north of Charlotte). The new Rodgers three manual console was done in a colonial finish and outfitted with mechanical drawknobs and MX-200. The Rodgers is interfaced to 11 ranks of new Ruffatti pipes which are the 8' Principal, 4' Octave, 2' Super Octave, Mixture IV, 8' Gemshorn, 8' Flute Harmonique (all on the Great) and the 8' Octave and 4' Octave in the Pedal. The matching facade are 95% high polished tin for which Ruffatti is known for making. The Rodgers is on 10 channels of audio with 8 Rodgers FR-1 full range speakers and 4 SW-7.5 subs powered by two QSC amplifiers. All of the organ speaks from the left side of the chancel. This organ replaced an Allen from the early 1980s.
The organ committee from this church considered two major pipe organ companies during their search process. The consultant for this project was Paul E. Oakley.
The dedication was play April 29th, 2012 by Rodney Barbour.
The organ was installed Thomas Murrell and Armon Zinalabedini and voiced by Dave Yoder and Bill Teyssier all of R. A. Daffer Church Organs Inc. The organ was sold by Al Murrell, Vice President of R. A. Daffer Church Organs, Inc.
