I challenge you to take your > playing to that next step.   About seven or eight years ago I had two CD players on my bench. In one I had put a disc by Michael Murray; in the other, one by Virgil Fox. Somewhere along in my fussing with these things they started working correctly as both discs reached Bach's "Little Fugue" at about the same time. As I "A-B"'d between the machines, my two younger daughters asked me why one sounded so much better than the other. I started arguing that both CDs sounded equally well. They retorted that they weren't talking about the quality of the sound but the quality of the playing.

Bad dogs, no biscuit! Comments welcome. Bob Zat Actually...Feidler DID have an organist on the Pops >once< that I can remember. The organist and orchestra played the Jongen "Symphonie Concertante", and then said guest artist played the Gigue Fugue and the Middlschulte "Perpual Motion for feet alone"   This once in a lifetime organic performance was furnished by the late Virgil Fox. it's the ONLY time I can remember seeing an organist featured on the Pops telecast.   I should live to see that happen (an organist on the Pops) again!!   Rick Maryman

Did you ever get the trem to work >on the >organ? /\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\ YES! I did. after I stayed home from school and was down at the organ with the organ tech., he told me that he had 3 more jobs to do that day. (it was 10 minutes to 1) So, he told me to look at it one last time and said to do ANYTHING I though would work, so, I crawled into the chamber under the swell box and (burned my self on the HOT blower: he said he was going to oil it) did a torough examination of it and noticed that one wire wasn't touching anything. So, I rewound the wire around the pole and tried it. IT WORKED!!!!!!!!! They DON'T solder them onto the poles because the tremulant bounces around and pulles the wires off the poles. I know, I should do something with the bouncing. I belive that the tremulant is and exhaust tremulant. The top triangle bounces up and down.   Later........... SHOOT!

From: GRS Co LVR <GRSCoLVR@aol.com> Date: Sun, 28 Dec 1997 22:56:22 EST   Good for you Jason,,,its runnin again.....I think you will find that the wires were originally soldered on,,but corrosion and whatever gets em loose.....I use solder wicking as wire where there is vibration,,,it has a lot of flexability. The top leaf of the trem pneumatic has to bounce up and down,,,its that intermittant exhaust of chest air that makes the "waves" in the chest to produce the trem effect...keep a good eye on that blower if it is runnin hot,,,if a high speed one,,,they will run hotter than the low speed ones,,,,but oil is cheaper than new bearings or a new motor.....Good luck on the playin,,,and the fixin. I have done both ever since I was 12 and find it especially satisfying to be able to repair my own problems when they occur. Get yourself a copy of "The Contemporary American Organ by William H. Barnes" if you can find one. There is lots of stuff in that book about how actions work and such,,,I think it would be helpful to you if you want to learn more.   Later   Roc
