This may or may not have been the same as the Pembroke, which I have only heard of. I once had the brochure from Marshall Stone. Most of the models offered included pedal. Now that I think of it, I enquired back in May 2001 on this list, and got this response from cshannon@epix.net:   _______________________ Marshal Stone organ..... Oh my, yes!! I had a 4 rank (single manual/no pedal--but "pedal ready"). I loved it. It was a portative, with a wonderful Regal right in the front, a piccolo, a chimney flute and a melodia (recycled pipes for this rank). I can't remember for sure, but I think the chimney flute was also a recycled rank.   I bought it used, sold it a few years later for $2800 (less than the cost of the Regal!!!), and I understand it has since been sold again.   ......Loved that instrument!!! And such a simple tracker mechanism--filament fishing line connecting the rear of keys to the pallets. Aluminum (tracker) squares in place for the addition of a pedalboard. A jewelry clasp-type hook on the end of the fishing line, and an "eye" on the tail of the keys. Very easy to disassemble and re-assemble. All this with a slider-type windchest---I thought it was great. The "touch" took some getting used to (shall we say "very quick and easy response" a-hem), but hey.....we can adapt, eh??   Carl ___________   I should add that several trackers I have 'touched' also have very light touch; a newly installed Kenneth Jones in Alaska, and an 1899 Felgemaker. I would say that it is impossible to make use of the celebrated slow attack on these instruments - the only way that I could manage decent playing was with a quick clean press of the keys. The "claw" finger position used by Wanda Landowska on the harpsichord, seen in documentaries on PBS, would be not too inappropriate for these organs.   Mac Hayes

Check out their Web site at:   http://www.laukhuff.de/   (After selecting a language, English, click on the "Our products" stop knob, then select "Catalogues" then scroll down to Category 10.)   I asked for prices some time ago. I don't remember the details but they weren't cheap. Then again, there are some professional organ builders around who are quite content to order these organs, assemble them, slap their own name on them and sell them to their clients...   The Laukhuff Web site is worth visiting, BTW. It's really difficult to resist ordering *something*!   Peter.

I will be more than glad to include your instrument on the web. I will send a separate email privately with my address.   Although I "prefer" getting photos via electronic means i do have a scanner so can deal with photo prints.   This goes for everyone on the list.

In German, the 'oe' or '=F6' (o-umlaut) IS pronounced 'er', so 'Lersh' is right! I grew up speaking German in my grandparents house. They had come to America about 1900 (seperately. Met and married here) from Bavaria. It was they who started the Americanization of the name to 'Lowsh' (long-'o', as in 'low', opposite of 'high'). I married a nice Irish girl (Anglican, if it matters ;-) (17 years, this year), who has no problem pronouncing it correctly.

But then inspiration struck: the Internet! All I'd need to do is send MIDI codes from home to the organ and listen on an audio feed coming back the other way!

A New Zealand dollar is worth even less. Yes, I have spent only about US$1200 on my whole 42 ranks.

New Zealand and Oz are 1200 miles away at the cloest point. Calling NZers Ozzies is as bad as saying "England" when you mean "Britain". Hhhaaaaaarrrrrrrruuuuuuuuuuummmmmmmmmmmppppphhhhh!!!!!!!!!!!!
