Many early organ building giants established thriving businesses in Erie. They included the Burdett Reed Organ Company, A. B. Felgemaker, Tellers Organ Company, and pipe maker Anton Gottfried."     John Volbeda     Timn wrote:   >Who's up on their Erie PA organ history?

(back) Subject: Self Tremming Regulator From: "Steven Durham" <sdurham11@attbi.com> Date: Sun, 27 Apr 2003 20:23:37 -0700   List:   I need help with my 3 rank pipe organ. I previously had a 1 HP Dayton Radial Blower powering the organ because I was unable to find a used Meidinger or Ventus blower that wasn't over $1000.00. This blower has worked better than expected despite the fact that it had to be placed in another room because it was too loud. It had a static pressure of 6" and = I have the organ winded with a 20" x 30" spring regulator with a cone valve and a built-in concussion bellows. The regulated pressure is 2.5" WP and = it was very steady.   Last week I bought a used .25HP Meidinger blower (it's gorgeous!!!) that = has a static pressure of about 4.75" WP. I have a 4" line into the regulator, just as before, and a 4" line from the regulator to the 3 rank chest. = Here is the problem: the regulator is now tremming without a trem all on its own. It is very fast and slight but none the less annoying. Any ideas of what is wrong? Suggestions? I need help!   Steven Durham Portland, OR
