The Nichols & Simpson organ at Pulaski Heights United Methodist Church replaces a 1960 instrument built by Schantz. The new instrument incorporates 28 ranks of pipework, the original blower and reservoirs. The wind pressures on this instrument range from 3.5″ for the Antiphonal flues to 4″ for the Great, Swell and Pedal, 5″ for the Choir, 6″ for the Pedal Bombarde, 7″ for the Festival Trumpet, and 18″ for the Tuba. The new facade casework is made of oak and finished to match existing sanctuary furnishings; the case pipes are made of flamed copper. The Antiphonal cases flanking the window in the rear of the church also feature flamed copper facade pipes with a belled brass trumpet en chamade at the top. The combination action has 99 levels of memory and a four-level adjustable crescendo system. The main windchests are pallet-and-slider construction with electric key action. The original ivories from the Schantz console were re-used in the new console.
