(back) Subject: My mother and that mystery box... From: Kevin Cartwright <kevin1@alaweb.com> Date: Fri, 10 Apr 1998 20:24:27 -0500   FROM PIPECHAT-L > It's especially hard when they also apply the woowoowoowoowoo trems. Refering to theatre organ tremulants.   So, everyone that actually listens to others:   My mother hates those tremulants as well. I LOVE them...but everyone has their viewpoints. It reminds me of the trip I took to the McKinney WurliTzer in Chattanooga. We went down to the basement with the owner, whilst Mr. Bill (the host of the entire trip) played upstairs. The lower level of the chamber was in the basement. The blower, regulators, relay, and tremulants were here. So, we were underneath the pipework. We could hear the organ roaring above us, and I noticed a small wooden box shaking the devil out of the windline leading away from it (the windline traveled about 8 or 9 feet UP to the rest of the organ, unsupported, so when that little box was working, it shook the line pretty bad). Of course, I knew what the box was, and what it did, so I asked my mother to tell me what that box was and what it was doing. Unknowledgable, she replied "Oh, it's a windbox." I took a minute to figure out what she thought she was telling me, and then gave her another chance, pointing at the wildly bouncing windline...she still dodn't get it. In order to not get the feeling that everything I was telling her had "gone with the wind," I kept giving her chances until Mr. McKinney explained/exclaimed what it was and asked me if I have seen one before...I was humuliated and dissapointed. Next time I'll just point to the object and say, for example, "Mother...(point)...tremulant." I think I might put one [TO trem] on my future Wicks just for the heck of it.   Oh, help those of us that waste our breath talking to people who don't care...well, I play the tuba, so I have a lot of breath to waste. Thanks for reading this far...   Kevin C. kevin1@alaweb.com

We still have to practice for THE BIG DAY! Besides, in Gainesville, there are a lot of buried bodies - don't worry whether they are yours or not!   Glenda Sutton

The tremulant sounds like a car with a rock stuck in the hub-cap and rattling as the wheel turns...   K.
