List-Unsubscribe: <mailto:requests@pipechat.org?subject=unsubscribe%20admin>   Hello! I already subscribed for pipe chat, but had two questions which I forgot to ask, and I was not entirely certain that address was the right place to ask them, so I am writing you. I play the organ and am very interested in everything about organs. I was wondering if there is a journal or magazine for organs that I could order -- so if you know something about that please help me with some information about it. Also, I have been trying to find a phone or address of some store-- anywhere in the coutry -- that sells organ shoes. I have had no success so far, so if you know something about this please write me. My email address is ( actually two -- either one is fine):   ikd0912@cub.uca.edu or: vania_d@hotmail.com   Thank you very much   Vania Driankova

In agree with Gudrun I beliefe I heared the Pachelbels, Bachs, Rheinbergers & Co. in any kind of interpretation: fast and slow, emotional and cool, without knowledge of backround and played by specialists. I understand Gudruns posting to encourage American organists to play American music. That seems to me an enrichment of our musical knowledge because American organ music is still something exotic on German programmes.     Arno   aRNO sCHUH sTADEN 42 d-54439 sAARBURG tELEFON +(0)65813944 E-MAILS: MAILTO://ARNO.SCHUH@IN-TRIER.DE MAILTO://T-ONLINE.DE HTTP://WWW.IN-TRIER.DE/~ARNO.SCHUH/TOCCATA.STM ....

(back) Subject: Key contacts/springs tighten From: krummhorn8@juno.com (Jason D Comet) Date: Fri, 7 Nov 1997 15:37:49 -0500   I have a 1920-21 C.E.Morey pipeorgan. (you have probably heard me type about it a few times. HaHaHa) ;-)   The key contacts and touch are too lose. If you press down the key barely a millimeter, they sound. The key tension (or touch) are too light. (approx. 3grams it takes to sound them.) I find myself getting lazy when I practice/play. When I go up the Swell keyboard, there are a "f#" and a "G" that have the pressure I would like. So, how do I tighten the tension? I know how to adjust the contacts. There is a little piece of metal with a screw going into the bottom of the key, which touches the contacts and completes the current from another contact. All I have to do, is tighten the screw to make the contacts speak later. But, how do you tighten the key touch (or tension)? The keyboards lift up and pivot in the back. (So I believe.)   Any help will be appreciated.   Respond privatly or to the whole list.   Thanks in advance,   Jason Comet Krummhorn8@juno.com |\ | \ O

I own a Conn and to my ears the tone or sound is better than the Baldwin's. The baldwin does have more features and has better, auto acomp, percussions, etc. I think the Conn's sound more theatrical.   I not sure but i think the cinema III has an electronic leslie where the Cinema II has a built in leslie and the III has many more features.   I believe you should get whats sound best to you not anyone else's opinion. I don't feel you can go wrong with either choice. Jerry Riddle

From: Bob Conway <conwayb@post.queensu.ca> Date: Fri, 07 Nov 1997 16:39:33 -0500   We shall be live on the Internet this evening with #Pipechat IRC, commencing at 9.00 pm EST. For our European friends that is 3.00 am, but there isn't much that we can do about that!   Go to AnotherNet, type in #Pipechat, if you haven't already joined with us previously, and you will be there with us. Remember that you cannot get into Anothernet unless you have the required IRC software, such as mIRC, Pirch, or the others that are for specific Macs etc.   If you can get on, come and enjoy the shenanigans on PipeChat Internet Relay Chat. All Pipchat-l members are welcome. There is no set topic, and it sometimes gets to discuss matters organic, - but that cannot be guaranteed, the topics are up to you!   Bob Conway, Bob Conway <conwayb@post.queensu.ca> Organic DeeJay Emeritus, - but back for this Session!

(back) Subject: 1910 Organ Rectifier From: bill.datasound@juno.com (Bill Ziegler) Date: Sat, 6 Sep 1997 18:48:34 -0500   The use of a rectifier in 1910 would have been nearly impossible. High current rectifier tubes would hvae been the only answer and they were not available. Selenium rectifiers were not designed until much later, and the type we know today, silicone were not areound until the 1960's. This leaves only the old belt driven generators. These were often the same type used in the automobile as they produced between 15-40 amps of output current.
