The consultant on the mess up, as you refer to it, was Phil Steinhouse formerly AEolian-Skinner Vice President.   The church is very happy with the results. In the original installation, the Great and Postiv were on the left side and spoke across the chancel. Now they speak directly down the Nave for a much better sound.   If you are going to blame someone for messing something up you'd better start with the Church folk who wanted a better sound. This was a very late A-S organ that had windchests made by Casavant and the sound did not compare favorably to the best A-S organs.   Blaine Ricketts Pipe Organ business repairing all makes as my only source of income since 1963.   Pipewheezr@aol.com wrote: > > At St. Paul's Cathedral down town they have a 4 manual Aeolian Skinner > messed > up buy Wicks.

Fred Homan was there making a recording using the MIDI sequencer. The artist had done the entire program and recorded it via MIDI. Fred was able to play it back until he found the right microphone location and was able to get a take without some outside interference.   The Wicks Company has one of the best manufacturing facilities anywhere. Charles Callahan, well known writer and organist, has done several Wicks jobs in recent years.   Wicks will build what you want. If a third party doesn't like it then blame the person who bought it because it was the buyer's intentions carried out.   Blaine Ricketts Pipe Organ Service of all makes since 1963 as only source of income.

Truck loading to take place this Tuesday.   Brief history - 20+ rank Skinner removed from church and stored in the basement of a private home for many years. Owner died, heirs want to dump the stuff. We bought the lot with the intent of funding our high school organ project with the proceeds.   We really only want the pipe work and console(gutted part trashed) parts only as storing is going to be challenge already just with that stuff. Some wooden parts are damaged, some restorable: chests, regulators, huge motor, looks like it came from a Kinetic blower(missing), etc.   What does not go on Tuesday goes into the dumpster unless we have takers for it.   We can store for short periods if necessary.   I will also post a spec of the organ at a later date.   John V
