The organ at the Jacobuskerk was built between the years 1645-1651, during Scheidemann's lifetime in nearby Hamburg. It was reconstructed to its original 17th century disposition and tuning (1/4 comma meantone) by Eskes & Blank in 1977-1979. It has two manuals and pedal, mechanical action with short octave range. The pitch is A=465.
