(back) Subject: More Conn Questions (x-posted) From: "Sean Haley" <newgershwin@hotmail.com> Date: Tue, 15 Dec 1998 11:00:11 PST   Greetings once again,   A kind list member sent me the spec to the Conn 653. I must say it appears to be quite an empressive machine (Wow, 32' and celestes). Another list member suggested that I consider a 652 instead. Now here's the question(s)... What is different between the two models that makes the 652 better? Are the specifications any different or is it just a matter of electronic reliability that the 653 doesn't have?   Just looking for the facts before I spend more money.

Are the specifications any different or is >it just a matter of electronic reliability that the 653 doesn't have?   The only thing I have heard is that the 653 has a particularly sensitive or complex keyer chip which has a high failure rate and may be hard to find. I have a 652, have had it 3 years, and have never had any problems at all with it. The 653 adds a few more voices (but the 652 does have celeste's). The 653 also has, I think, user-settable "blind" combinations (stops don't move) which is missing from the 652.     < W J Morton wjm@pacbell.net > No trees were harmed by the production of this message; however, a rather large number of electrons were somewhat inconvenienced.

I have one month left, and no organ.   I would try this with my school district.   If I were you, I would give approx. dimensions of two chambers. (Taking into acount the unexpressive traps) and leave enough room for the adition of several ranks in the future. Now I'm not saying these have to be large or anything, but just large enough to accomidate at least two or three more ranks.   If I were you, I would try seeing how much a NEW TO would cost, about 10 ranks, but then again, I'm the kind of person that would have the auditorium turned in to a pizza parlor with a 3 rank en chamade division hanging on the back wall with multi-colored 32' diaphone pipes in sunrooms with the glass facing the main street so that the passing cars could see them as they sit waiting for the light to change and a total of 350 hp blowers feeding a total of 100" for the en Chamade pipes and 16' Opicleide unexpressive and in the plain view of the entire audience with a highly sophisticated computerized light show going as the console rises out of the center of the stage as you play "My Life" by Billy Joel (Jones Nordwall at the late Organ Grinder in Denver CO) with the percussion and traps going like a blur with the strobe lights flashing in the peoples, and your, eyes.   Don't we all wish!!!!   I'm going to try that with my district. We are also going to build a new Junior High School with a suspended passage way over the parking lot to the High school Science wing. The Auditorium is going to be enlarged and renewed. (Even though I won't be around to see it.)   Well anyways, Goodluck Jason Comet Junior in High School bombarde8@juno.com Beginning Driver -- get off the streets! |\ Organist/Choir Director | | 2/13 C.
