At this stage, changes are still easy to = make."       Hi Dennis, Looks impressive and also looks like a ton of work, best of = luck with this and keep us informed as to progress and problems. I agree with the need for an 8' flute, I think one of your 4' flutes will = be a welcome addition to the stop list. Also a couple more suggestions:   1) since you already have a string celeste on the swell and we are dealing with a 2 manual instrument (if I remember correctly) consider putting the Erzahler celeste on the great so you can accomp. the many solo = possibilities on the swell. The soft 8' unison Erzahler will also make a nice practice stop when learning new music (I like to keep a low (VERY low profile = during these times).   2) since you have an 8' oboe, how about adding a 4' oboe to the pedal and = a preparation tab for a 16' oboe, if you are short on tabs perhaps 8' manual couplers will lessen the need for the extra borrowed stops on the pedal. = A 2' open (or any kind!) flute makes a beautiful solo stop on the pedal too and is perfect for pedal scale practice. <G>   I am sure I could offer more but I don't really know the pipe work you = have well enough.   re: the possible addition of an 8' open flute, I may have a set of 12, 8' stopped flute basses for you down the road I can let go very cheap if that helps you. They should work perfectly. (ok nearly!)
