(back) Subject: Portative organ kits From: "Tony Newnham" <organist@tsnp.fsnet.co.uk> Date: Wed, 19 Sep 2001 10:16:33 +0100   Hi   During our recent holiday we visited the Early Music Shop in Bradford, UK. They stock reproduction Portative organs (a 2ft and 1ft versions). These are also available as kits! The 1ft is diatonic, 1 1/2 octaves from = treble c, the 2ft is 2 octaves (chromatic) from mid-c. They also had a 4ft positive in stock - also available as a kit. They also stock a range of other early keyboard instruments, and recorders, shawms, etc. etc. Well worth a visit if you're into early music.   They are situated above Wood's Music Shop, which covers most other areas = of music except Classical Organ!   Early Music Centre 38 Manningham Lane Bradford West Yorkshire BD1 3EA   www.e-m-s.com   Every Blessing   Tony

There's a basic web-page at http://shift.merriweb.com.au/harmonium/museums/vrom.html   Cost is only 2UKP. I visited whilst on holiday in the area - and I'm looking forward to another visit.   Every Blessing.   Tony      
(back) Subject: Estey 16' Haskell Diapason for sale From: "Larry Chace" <rlc1@etnainstruments.com> Date: Wed, 19 Sep 2001 08:57:15 -0400   I just noticed on the "Church Organ Trader" that my friend Jim Weisenborne =   has a very unusual item for sale:   For Sale: 16' wooden Estey Haskell diapason. $800. All pipes in good condition. Located north of Detroit. Kimballl@Yahoo.com   This set is a fairly large scale, as I recall, but of course it is quite short, perhaps 10 or 11 feet tall at the most. The Haskelled bass pipes have a reputation for very prompt speech, an additional advantage.   Happy haskelling!   Larry Chace
