From: "S LaManna" <slamanna@hotmail.com> Date: Sat, 22 Aug 1998 04:11:48 PDT   Good Morning Everyone!   For the past month or two, I have been hearing rumours and whispers regarding a restaurant under, or nearing completion with pipes somewhere in Florida...   I have heard everywhere from Tampa to Miami, and with everyone consulting on it from Lyn Larsen to God knows who....   Can anyone shed some light on this?   Thanks,   Steve LaManna   ______________________________________________________ Get Your Private, Free Email at http://www.hotmail.com

How about the key contacts/gold rods? *-*-*-*-* Conn has a Sustain Pedal Memory circuit which *should* only be used with the Sustain Pedal switch. I think that's what the problem is with mine. But Anyways. I usually try fiddling with the Sustain Pedal Switch and try getting it to stop. *Usually* if it does, it's *USUALLY* in the memory circuit. I should add that I haven't got a clue to fixxing it, I can only trace it 50% correct.     Jason Comet bombarde8@juno.com |\ | \ O   _____________________________________________________________________ You don't need to buy Internet access to use free Internet e-mail.

If not, does anybody know if Austin, or Allen builds TO consoles.   I f you don't know that either, then would any body have a set of plans for me to build a TO console. I need the insturment bought, built, and installed before fall. (I just hate it when people ask me to do something like this less than a month before.)(No, I didn't say yes. I said I would use what I had done. And I would continue building opening night if I had to.)   But the only problem is Money. (Isn't it all!)   Does anybody know if Austin sells their electro-mechanical C/A Action and/or AGO pedalboards w/action by itself?themselves?   Jason Comet bombarde8@juno.com |\ | \ O   _____________________________________________________________________ You don't need to buy Internet access to use free Internet e-mail.

I'm going to try that on my Electronic TO (Can't call it an enlargement anymore.)   Jason Comet bombarde8@juno.com |\ | \ O     On Thu, 20 Aug 1998 12:42:51 EDT <ORGANUT@aol.com> writes: >Help,(Needing to tap on that vast storehouse of knowledge out there) > >I am trying to get the names of any sources which manufacture the >percussion rhythm drive units for real traps and percussions.

(back) Subject: Conn for the Theatre From: bombarde8@juno.com (Jason D. Comet) Date: Sat, 22 Aug 1998 12:06:40 -0400   I work very closely with the local theatre group. This Fall, they are putting on "The Life and times of P.T. Barnum". The orchestra is going to be upstage center. They need a Calliopie for most of the show. If the person who was selling the Conn Cathedralsonic (sp?) Pipe Speakers is still out there, Please e-mail me PRIVATLY. I sat up until 12:30 in the morning drawing plans for a look-alike calliopie for the back of the band-stand. Since I don't have any place in the imediate future to store my insturment, I was thinking of using it in the show. However, The pedals are only an octave and the keyboards are only spinet sized. (Three of them)   However, I was thinking about the enlargement, and it won't be an enlargement. It would be a new build. I was thinking about building a larger console to acommodate the 175 atop tabs, III/61 manuals, an AGO Austin or Allen pedalboard, pitons, new circuitry, piston action, etc... etc... etc...   I do like the idea Owen had, he built a box to house the *guts* of the organ and I take it he has the piston action, multiplexing systen, and power supply for the console.   I have a pretty good idea where to get the parts for all of this. Peterson EMP for the Multiplexing,Switching system, Stop tablet engraving, and possible piston action, keyboards, pedal contact system (if I can't get it from other places)   Austin for the Console, or the AGO pedalboaard, and/or the c/a action   Allen for the console, or AGO pedalboard if Austin won't.   And Sonic Creations for the other stuff.     I've got a question for Owen. How much is the LOWEST price from Sonic Creations. (I dare ask) Please e-mail me PRIVATLY.   Thanks and wish me luck, pray for me, etc... etc... etc... etc....

(back) Subject: Looking for organ pipes From: "Dennis Goward" <dgoward@uswest.net> Date: Sat, 22 Aug 1998 13:40:46 -0700   I'm looking for a rank of pipes to use in a facade for a (gasp) electronic organ. I want them just for display, so they don't need to be in speaking condition. just an attractive scale, no more than an 8" stop, preferably nice spotted metal. It's just for looks.   I'm in the Phoenix area, so if you have a rank to either give away or sell extremely cheap, let me know.   Dennis Goward

From: danbel@earthlink.net Date: Sat, 22 Aug 1998 17:51:43 -0400   Greetings all,   Is there anyone who might possibly have a copy of the music for Roller Coaster? ----that wonderful finger-buster written by Milton DeLugg and played so perfectly by George Wright ---THAT Roller Coaster!!   If you DO indeed have the music, I would appreciate hearing from you in private email. I know it was published and that it is out of print at this point. I am looking for this as a favor of a friend of mine in Switzerland who would like to learn it. Since it is out of print, he would be sincerely appreciative of a xerox of the piece if at all possible!   I hope to hear from one of you ASAP on this one!!!!   Thanks in advance,   Dan Bellomy

I am finally giving in to the pressures of my friends and holding a dedicatory festival so everyone can see my practice instrument. I have set the date of Saturday, 5 September, 1998, beginning at 6:00 p.m. CST. I'll play a while at 6, then everyone will enjoy the food while one or two guest organists play, followed by open console.   Everyone is invited, but please contact me if you plan to attend. Remember, that is Labour Day weekend, so if you are travelling past Greenville, Alabama, stop by and see what's going on. Please give at least one day's advanced notice (actual meaning: First thing that Saturday morning at the latest). There will be a wide variety of the organ's colours displayed. I will be covering the theatre organ capabitlities, and my friend will cover the classical capabilities, and another (currently un-released) organist might play, and he will show off the best of all aspects. This is an INFORMAL occasion. Show up early enough, and I'll take you to the FUMC in Greenville and play a little on the 2/19 Wicks.   For now,   Kevin Cartwright Greenville, Alabama (334) 382-7756 kevin1@alaweb.com
