I have looked at a couple of small, three or four rank unit organs and = I have decided that something like that might be a good place for me to = start a project.

I would like to add a = few ranks to the house organ so that it will have independent voices for trio playing. I am thinking that the bourdon rank can be played at 16 and 8 in =   the pedal and also in the Swell (r.h.) at 8 without many dropped notes, = while the open diapason is played at 8 on the Great. What do I need to add for = a "pro organo pleno" effect? I'm thinking of a 4 and a 2 for each manual = (four more ranks) and maybe a mixture or two. These organs have a third rank, usually a string or dulciana, but I don't know if this would fit into the registration I am describing somewhere (at 2?).   These organs usually are about 4x10 in size, so I think I could add an EM chest behind the rest of the organ, possibly a self-made one, which would = add what I want in a space about 2x10 or less. I would appreciate advice/comments from those of you who are familiar with such layouts.   Regards, Roy Kersey Knoxville, TN   --part1_115.71213a1.29155e15_boundary Content-Type: text/html; charset=3D"US-ASCII" Content-Transfer-Encoding: 7bit   <HTML><FONT FACE=3Darial,helvetica><FONT SIZE=3D2>Hi again, pipers: <BR> <BR>I find myself going to sleep and waking up with specifications in my = head . . .

I wonder if an open wood flute, or chimney flute at 8" would be a better match for the other ranks...   Jimmy in Virginia       Jess4203@aol.com wrote: > > Hi again, pipers: > > I find myself going to sleep and waking up with specifications in my > head . . .
