In the time =3D that followed many pipes became available and switching was not a =3D problem any more - the organ was now to be a straight organ - later with = =3D mechanical action.   Anyway, my company (an electronic enigineering company) had a request to = =3D locally design and manufacture a switching system. The project is =3D currently in the design phase and the first unit is expected in about =3D June this year. So folks, if the design can be influenced to fulfill =3D your requirements, let me know so that I can see what is possible.   All the best with all the residence projects!   Pieter Smit pieter@cadence-engineering.co.za   ------=3D_NextPart_000_0010_01C1CB4F.E9CA2AC0 Content-Type: text/html; charset=3D"iso-8859-1" Content-Transfer-Encoding: quoted-printable   <!DOCTYPE HTML PUBLIC "-//W3C//DTD HTML 4.0 Transitional//EN"> <HTML><HEAD> <META http-equiv=3D3DContent-Type content=3D3D"text/html; =3D charset=3D3Diso-8859-1"> <META content=3D3D"MSHTML 5.50.4134.600" name=3D3DGENERATOR> <STYLE></STYLE> </HEAD> <BODY bgColor=3D3D#ffffff> <DIV><FONT face=3D3DArial size=3D3D2>Hi Folks,</FONT></DIV> <DIV><FONT face=3D3DArial size=3D3D2></FONT>&nbsp;</DIV> <DIV><FONT face=3D3DArial size=3D3D2>When I started with my house organ = =3D about 10 year=3D20 ago, it was meant to be a unified instrument and switching was to be = a=3D20 problem.&nbsp;&nbsp; In the time that followed many pipes became =3D available and=3D20 switching was not a problem any more - the organ was now to be a =3D straight organ=3D20 - later with mechanical action.</FONT></DIV> <DIV><FONT face=3D3DArial size=3D3D2></FONT>&nbsp;</DIV> <DIV><FONT face=3D3DArial size=3D3D2>Anyway, my company (an electronic =3D enigineering=3D20 company) had a request to locally design and manufacture a switching=3D20 system.&nbsp;&nbsp;The project is currently in the design&nbsp;phase =3D and&nbsp;=3D20 the first unit is expected&nbsp;in about June this year.&nbsp; So folks, = =3D   if&nbsp;the design&nbsp;can be&nbsp;influenced to fulfill your =3D requirements, let=3D20 me know&nbsp;so that&nbsp;I can see what is possible.</FONT></DIV> <DIV><FONT face=3D3DArial size=3D3D2></FONT>&nbsp;</DIV> <DIV><FONT face=3D3DArial size=3D3D2>All the best with all the = residence=3D20 projects!</FONT></DIV> <DIV><FONT face=3D3DArial size=3D3D2><BR>Pieter Smit<BR><A=3D20 href=3D3D"mailto:pieter@cadence-engineering.co.za">pieter@cadence-engineeri= =3D ng.co.za</A></FONT></DIV></BODY></HTML>   ------=3D_NextPart_000_0010_01C1CB4F.E9CA2AC0--

I have an octave of Haskelled 8' Aeoline basses for the Dulciana to make an = 8' stop out of the set. What pipe scales are available in this collection = for these ranks? How much are you asking for these ranks? For the chimes? = How much additional would the windchests be? Do you have Direct Electric valves? How much would crating and shipping to Detroit, MI be? The basic tonal design of the organ is American Classic IV: http://www.wicks.com/organ/specs/ac1.htm.   Sincerely, Christopher Sabatowich ----- Original Message ----- From: "John & Pat Ball" <johnrball@erols.com> To: "Residence Organ List" <DIYAPASON-L@pipechat.org> Sent: Wednesday, March 13, 2002 3:37 PM Subject: [Residence Organs] Pipe Organ Parts for sale     > I'm offering for sale my lifetime collection of pipe organ ranks and = organ > building materials.
