These two organs were built at the same time and are essentially identical.  The pedal boards are different: the Duke instrument’s is flat, whereas the Westminster organ’s pedalboard is concave and radiating. Due to its location in a smaller room, the Duke organ is voiced more softly than Westminster.

These two-manual and pedal instruments, used primarily for teaching, each have a white painted case with mahogany trim, keydesk, and pipe shades.  There are three hook-down pedals, which activate the couplers. The front pipes are hammered and polished lead, the naturals keys are grenadil and the accidentals are bone-topped rosewood.
