(X-posted from Theatreorgans-l) From: "John Burns" <burnsjr@prodigy.net> Date: Sat, 3 Jun 2000 20:12:44 -0400   Let's suppose that you had a Wurlitzer 16' Concert Flute/Bourdon, 97 = notes. Then by some accident, freak of nature, or perhaps just shear stupidity, = you found yourself with a second identical rank. A few questions occurred to = me:   1. Would it be good to use one as a Celeste rank for the other? 2. If so, should you eliminate the top octave for the Celeste? 3. Do the two ranks need to be placed in the same chamber? If so, on the same regulator and trem? I'm guessing no trem for the bass offsets. 3. I suppose that you would be tuning the Celeste rank flat. Exactly how = is this done? By ear? If you have access to a decent strobe tuner, should you tune each Celeste note the same number of cents flat? Or does the number = of cents flat vary throughout the compass of the rank?   Foolish minds want to know. Thanks.   John
