Did ya' all hear him??In another of the churches we service, some "rank" amateur tried to revoice an Oboe as a Trumpet. ...cut the scroll down, then messed with the reed/shallot end.

From: cremona84000@webtv.net (bruce cornely) Date: Sat, 5 Dec 1998 23:20:48 -0500 (EST)   Thanks William, I've done the reed regulating thing before, and I was looking for something quick, easy, cheap, and reversible in a nanosecond when the finisher gets here to do it permanently. This is the first organ I've every played that I didn't enjoy going inside of... bummer!   I'll just wait until he get here in March. So what if there are traffic problems when I use the trumpets! hehehe   ........................bruce cornely........................ o o o o ______________ o o o o d o g s ______________ o o h o o a o o ______________ o o p s   ............. cremona84000@webtv.net ............     The small percentage of dogs that bite people is monumental proof that the dog is the most benign, forgiving creature on earth. -- W.

I was wondering if a thicker material might do this and keep the crappola out of the resonator. Any thoughts? >> Bruce - Using a thicker cloth might muffle the trompettes, but re-regulating the reed/resonators adjustments would probably give a better and more stable result.... you also have the option of having the resonators capped or half- capped, which would also darken the tone.   just my thoughts   Rick maryman
