I removed a Hall organ last year and the parts,8 dia.&ged.&viola&v.d.o.&oboe&4' harmonic flute & a huge bourdon16&8.And a = vox in a box, has beneath best parts I have worked with for two reasons, I = think. This was an original installation, no one had touched any thing accept for =   being maintained. And the pipes are built very sturdy, thick zinc and lead =   and the ged.and bourdon out off tight grain wood,I don't know what kind of =   wood. These parts were a lot better than a lot of the stuff that came with =   the original 24 ranks or so.We,me and the organ fellow, have spent hours voicing the original pipes because some else had been there first. The = Hall was untouched, making the voicing tuning much easier. The organ here is begging to sound pretty good, a little loud, but good = sound when the operator hit's the corrrrrect keys, or as the music was written = and is supposed to sound!

Is it better quality? better scaling? in the case of wood pipes, better aging?   Rick     ----- Original Message ----- From: <Pipewheezr@aol.com> To: <DIYAPASON-L@pipechat.org> Sent: Thursday, June 15, 2000 10:04 AM Subject: Re: [Residence Organs] Re: going rate for pipes     > I would like to add two maybe three cents here. > I removed a Hall organ last year and the parts,8 > dia.&ged.&viola&v.d.o.&oboe&4' harmonic flute & a huge bourdon16&8.And a vox > in a box, has beneath best parts I have worked with for two reasons, I think. > This was an original installation, no one had touched any thing accept = for > being maintained.
