At some point in the 1950s it was converted from a single roll frame to a dual tracker system. It was rebuilt in the winter of 1978-79 by the B.A.B. Organ Company (East Burke, Vermont). 16 bell bars (glockenspiel) were built and added by William Kromer in 1986. The organ was completely rebuilt during the winter of 2000-2001 by Dr. William E. Black, with the assistance of Michael Kitner and also aided by Bob Ryesky and Durward Center.
A complete account (descriptive and technical) of the organ's renovation (by Drs. William E. Black and Floyd L. Moreland) can be found in the November 2001 issue of the e-magazine WWW.CAROUSELS.COM (www.carousels.com/cpier_restoration.htm)
The organ is the sole source of music at the Carousel at Casino Pier. Originally a second organ (Wurlitzer 125) was also present on this carousel. It was removed in 1976.
