(back) Subject: Hooded Trumpet? From: "Dave McClellan" <drmc@speedfactory.net> Date: Fri, 25 May 2001 08:37:39 -0400   The bottom 6 pipes of an 8' trumpet recently acquired are too tall to = stand on their chest. If placed on an offset chest on the floor (I have 2 = 8-note DVA offset chests available) still the bottom two pipes are too tall.   I asked on this list before, and also spoke with a local organbuilder, = about the possibility of mounting the 6 pipes horizontally. His advice was to avoid the complexity of horizontal mounting and use the offset chest. He recommended that the two longest pipes could be "hooded over" (in the = common metal part near the top) with negligable affect on voicing (90 degree bend formed by 22.5 degree cuts). This would be much cheaper than trying to = form "nuckles" in the zinc in the thin part of the resonator near the block socket.   Have any experienced builder done this before? How much time would = normally be required for 2 pipes?   Any opinions? Thanks, Dave McClellan, Atlanta

For an experienced = builder it should take no more that two hours. I've seen some horrible disasters when people try and do it themselves. Spend the money and have a pro do = it.   Steven ----- Original Message ----- From: "Dave McClellan" <drmc@speedfactory.net> To: "DIYAPASON-L" <DIYAPASON-L@pipechat.org> Sent: Friday, May 25, 2001 5:37 AM Subject: [Residence Organs] Hooded Trumpet?     > The bottom 6 pipes of an 8' trumpet recently acquired are too tall to stand > on their chest.

If it would be better to make it Monday the 18th I could do that. I have a quite an assortment of pipes in my own uninventoried collection, but suspect I am missing a lot of bottom octave pipes, so I want to pick up 12 haskelled diapasons, gambas, aeolines, or whatever I can fit into my SUV, a Kia. Who knows, I might even be able to get full-length 8' pipes in there? I didn't see any krummhorns or musettes listed; I could probably use a soft squeaky reed of some sort. Somewhere in the range of 2.5- 4.5" WP.   I will be checking my email while in Ohio, but the sooner we can arrange my visit to your shop, the better. If you already know that is a bad weekend for you, I might consider picking up the pipes on my way eastbound, the 6th or 7th of June, but I druther not.   Mac Hayes Rosamond, CA
