Scholz Memorial Pipe Organ

The thirteen-rank, two-manual instrument was designed specifically for the sanctuary at Abiding Savior, and was constructed new in 1996 by Hagerstown Pipe Organ Company, Inc. This instrument was commissioned, and the construction supervised, by Charles and Charlotte Scholz as a gift to the Glory of God and to encourage the praise of the people of Abiding Savior Lutheran Church. The pipes are fabricated from wood, zinc, and a tin/lead combination. Some notable features are that both the Swell and the Great chests are under expression, the action is Möller direct electric, and it has a Peterson solid state combination action.
