See the organ inside the back cover of TAO March, 2003 for = an >example.     Not *quite* as fancy, admittedly, but it is actually relatively easy to make an "egg-crate" grillework yourself, if you are reasonably adept at the tablesaw. [too-quick description: bind a whole stack of long thin slats together on edge, then mark and cut a precise series of dadoes along =   the whole length of one edge of the pack, then unbind, turn half of them over and 90 deg., and start interlocking them with each other]   >I have found couple examples of perforated metal grilles in this design = (and >other designs).     If you use metal grillework panels, be careful to fasten it securely wherever it rests against anything, in order to prevent annoying rattles. Generally, it would be stapled (profusely!) against a strip of felt on the backside of whatever frame is holding it.   >I will probably need to cover the back side of the grille with an = acoustical >cloth as well. > >Since the organ will speak into a room that we use often, this must be >aesthetically pleasing to my wife (an to me, of course).   You might be surprised at the things that "disappear" in the dark behind a =   relatively 'open' grillework. (As long as you have no windows in your chamber, and the lights are off, that is...!) Careful usage of flat-black =   spray paint can help to disguise things like white PVC windlines, or shiny =   swell-shade hardware that might be too close to the back of the grille. Also, though the idea likely sounds scary to an average = homeowner, it helps a great deal if the walls/ceiling behind the grille are painted black (or otherwise very dark colored).   I think I'd wait until you got your grille (of whatever design) before buying any cloth to back it with, especially if you are considering buying =   actual acoustical grillecloth material. (Mellotone and others that have already been mentioned) That stuff is great, but it certainly isn't = cheap! <g> Who knows, if you get carried away with the voicing, you might end up =   discovering that you want to hang thick velvet drapes behind the = grille...! <LOL> ;-)   Cheers all --   Tim Bovard Little Rock PS -- thanks everyone for the "scoop" on Atlantic City Organ Co. ! =
