(back) Subject: Back on the list again From: "Kilgen" <kilgen@wi.rr.com> Date: Sat, 4 Oct 2003 22:21:59 -0500       Hello;   I have re-joined this list now that I have home internet access again. My name is Gary and I am building a theatre style organ in my home. It is presently being built as a 3/11 but if I find a Kinura, it will be 12 = ranks. My organ project is about half done but there is lots of work to be done = yet before I will get my first musical notes out of it.   The console is a Moller three manual double bolster horseshoe style in = oak. It was originally installed in a Chicago church and has gothic style paneling. I recently bought a large collection of Moller colored stopkeys = to replace the church style stopkeys.   Ranks are as follows:   8' Tibia, early Barton, 12" WP, 85 pipes, on Barton style chest, regulated with a Wurlitzer 20 X 30 regulator and tremed with a large Wurlitzer trem. 8' Vox, (make unk), large scale fliptop style, 6" WP, 61 pipes, on Smith chest, regulated with 12 X 12 Moller regulator and tremed with a Moller beater trem.   Following Ranks on 4 rank Wurlitzer chest regulated to 8" WP using 30 X 40 three valve regulator (make unk) and tremed with large trem (make unk):   8' Tuba, Barton, 61 pipes. 8' salicional celeste, (Make unk), 61 pipes. 8' salicional, Barton, 73 pipes. 8' Clarinet, (Make unk), 61 pipes.   Following ranks on three rank Wurlitzer chest regulated to 10" WP using 30 = X 40 Marr&Colton regulator tremed with large Marr&Colton trem:   8' Diapason, (make unk), 73 pipes. 8' Violin, Wurlitzer, 73 pipes. 8' Concert flute, Wurlitzer, 85 pipes. (16' bourdon)   Following two ranks on Moller chest and (make unk) chest regulated to 5" = WP using 20 X 20 Kilgen regulator and small Kilgen trem:   8' Oboe, Kilgen 8' Gamba, Geo. Meyer   I plan to have four channels of MIDI out from the console and all traps an percussions will be electronic including an electronic 16' tuba, 16' diaphone and 8' post horn. My chamber size will not allow these additional voices/sounds to be real.   I hope at some future date, to create a web page that will have pictures = of my project.   Gary K.

I have been working on a theatre organ for a long time (like about 30 years) and it has indeed been an interesting trip! Sounds like you've got a great instrument. Nice to have another TO =   person around! Keep us informed on your progress!   At 10:21 PM 10/4/2003 -0500, Kilgen wrote: >Hello; > >I have re-joined this list now that I have home internet access again.
