Look carefully from every angle for *something* (anything!) about the offending pipe that is not the same as its neighbors. Pay particular attention to the mouth area, but all portions of the troubled pipe should be examined thoroughly in this way.   If you find a difference of some sort in the troubled pipe, you can carefully attempt to make it closer to its neighbors. If you do not find = a difference, the pipe needs help by someone with ears trained in pipe voicing (or you do indeed risk damaging/destroying it by = "experimentation").   Voicing problems are practically impossible to diagnose/repair via email = -- you just really DO have to "be there"...<g>   Regards,   Tim     At 03:23 PM 1/25/2002 -0800, you wrote:   >I do have all of the voicing tools and have done some basic touch up work =   >in the past when needed, but I don't want to do anything to destroy these =   >pipes.

Low pressure, non-nicked pipes, when heard in an intimate setting, are often inherently uneven in treble regions, despite the best attempts of fine voicers. It's "the nature of the beast[s]", so to speak.   TMB   At 05:57 PM 1/25/2002 -0600, I wrote: >Voicing problems are practically impossible to diagnose/repair via email >-- you just really DO have to "be there"...<g>

I have heard pipes that sound pretty bad up close but which will sound okay out in "the room." Problem is, "the room" in most cases is a rather spacious church or concert hall, and the nature of our beasts (residence organs) is that they ususally MUST be heard close up - there's little opportunity for the "spit and hiss" problems to die away before reaching our ears.   Ron Rarick Muncie Indiana   ----- Original Message ----- From: Tim Bovard <tmbovard@earthlink.net>   > One further thing I wished to add (but neglected to type in time) > > With pipes as you describe (especially trebles of such stops) it is > entirely possible that nothing at all is wrong.

In addition to examining the offending pipe(s), it might be interesting to place one of them onto the toehole where a non-offending pipe sits. While it is unlikely, it is at least possible that there is some obstruction or rough edge in the windchest's borings for the offending pipe(s). And, it's an easy experiment to perform!   Have you tried turning the offending pipe(s) around, so that the mouth is pointing away from the listener? Again, probably not much of a remedy, = but easy to do and then undo.   Larry Chace

Are you looking for a regulator or a reservoir? Does the single fold 18X36 =   have a valve,,either curtain or cone inside it,,,,if not its a reservoir only,,,if its got a valve,,its a regulator,,,,you need a regulator between =   the blower and the chests. The size is quite fine for 3 ranks in my opinion,,,but I am sure others have vastly different opinions. hahahahah Cheers, ---Roc
