In 1996 bouwden de Austin Organ Company (opus 2765) en de Allen Organ Company samen een nieuw hybride-orgel met digitale tractuur, sleepladen, 5 manualen en radiaal concaaf pedaalklavier voor de La Grave Ave Christian Reformed Church in Grand Rapids (Michigan). Allen bouwde 32 elektronische registers, en Austin bouwde het pijporgelgedeelte.
