Notes: Information from Scot Huntington, using promotional company literature from Schlicker. A "multum in parvo" design for a teaching instrument, this is the smallest 3-manual organ Schlicker ever built.

It is Schlicker's re-interpretation of similar revival-era teaching instruments built by Holtkamp and Aeolian-Skinner.

The Great and Positive divisions utilize the same disposition Schlicker used in their 2-manual/mechanical-action teaching studio/chapel organs.

Functionally exposed pipework within a simple reflecting casework: Swell upper center, pedal upperwork in front; Great chromatic chest left, Positive chromatic chest right, pedal basses divided left and right behind.

The organ has electro-pneumatic action with expansion chambers drilled within the toeboards. A reflective wooden enclosure and the company's trademark "Choirmaster" console with rocking stop tablets in a single row above the Swell manual.

The Swell is enclosed in the center, the Pedal Principal chest was cantilevered in front, the unenclosed Great and Positive divisions are on chromatic chests on either side, and the pedal was divided on C/C-sharp chests behind them.

The pipework is voiced with open-toes on low pressure, and the console is moveable.
