I = have finished hooking it up now, complete with a better and newly releathered regulator. I have it playing on 10" of wind now. I have been cleaning the reeds, but many still need it, and I need to do a lot of regulation of = tone quality still, but with a rough tuning, it already adds a lot of pizzaz to the organ.   Kelvin
