Are there depreciation tables? Or is it simply a matter of whatever > offer a seller is willing to accept from a prospective buyer based on what > the owner paid however many years earlier?   Having recently purchased a large used Rodgers Custom 340 Theatre organ, I spent a fair amount of time pricing various other options. While it appears that David's comment about the owner's original price has some merit, my experience was that the driving price was what the owner could get for the instrument as a trade in. The most common trades were for the new Rodgers 360, followed closely by the Allen 317 series.   It also appeared that organs were generally higher priced in Florida, Arizona, and, to a lesser degree, California, where there is more interest in theatre organs (more retirees???), than in the Dallas-Ft Worth area where I live. For instance, I found Conn 652's priced from a low of $2900 - Houston, to a high of $6900 - Orlando, all for the same organ!!!   All in all, if you are willing to take the time for a national search (the Theatre Organ for sale pages is a great place to start at http://theatreorgans.com/ads/) you can probably find some real bargains!   Best of luck in your search,   Bob Acker Allen, TX

I do not remember the month or day. They were living in a lovely mobile home park in Clearwater Flordia.   We had been putting off going to visit them, something important always seemed to get in the way (they don't seem so important now) We called Bettie and learned that Reggie had died just about three or four days previously. Another lesson in putting things off until it is too late! They had been watching television together when she went into the kitchen to get something. When she returned he was gone.   >Also, would anyone happen to know the issue dates of the >magazines detailing his setup? I know it was loooong ago, >but maybe they're on microfilm somewhere??

I had them but they have long since wandered off. It seems to me that while Moller was reworking the organ that "The Theatre Organ" magazine diid an article about it, complete with pictures. Don't they have an archive somewhere that is indexed? It seems to me that I heard that they did.   >I'll bet none of the pipes were spotted-metal?? Not the >big ones, anyhow.   Yes they were, as well as zinc etc. The clamps Moller used resembled the clamps that were used on old style electrolyc capacitors. A band shaped to the pipe with a screw to tighten, then two legs bent at right angles at the bottom to fasten to the top board. As I remember (at least I think I remember) the 16' wooden basses were built directly on top of and screwed to the offset chests.   Robert "Bob" Shumway rshumway@iamerica.net     >Thanks! from saturated Central California (Watch out, Midwest >and East Coast ... next week is not going to be nice, weather >wise!) > >Ron

Me and our other organist. Our other organist likes the bench right where it is, but when I use it, my legs are too long for the bench. I tried using boards about 1/2" thick, but the bench wobbles and tips. The legs are seated on a carpet (Lord knows who's Idea that was!) and tips when on blocks.   Also, Because my legs are long, I have to hold them off the pedalboard so I don't accidentally hit any. I hold my self up with my leg muscles and also my back muscles. So, when I'm playing all day* (like today. Two services, two choir rehersals, and another rehearsal earlier tonight) *my back is killing me. It's done that since I've been hitting the pedals with my feet prematurly. I've put block under the legs, but I tip and fall into the console, or behind me into the wall and turn the carillon on.   Any help will be appreciated.   Thanks   Jason Comet bombarde8@juno.com |\ | \ O   P.S. I don't want to get rid of the present bench. It's been BEAUTIFULLY redone and stained, and also fits the consloe BEAUTIFULLY.   _____________________________________________________________________ You don't need to buy Internet access to use free Internet e-mail.

Instead of the wirer rewiring the organ, she had the organ voicer revoice some of the pipes. :-) My Dulcetina rank doesn't go cromatically.

Should organists really care about downbeats at all? = How does one learn to produce downbeats without the help of a swell = pedal---should this prove to be possible?   Any insight that list members can provide to this issue will be greatly = appreciated -- at least by one side or the other of this 'discussion.'   ------=_NextPart_000_0061_01BD34C5.472D6180 Content-Type: text/html; charset="iso-8859-1" Content-Transfer-Encoding: quoted-printable   <!DOCTYPE HTML PUBLIC "-//W3C//DTD W3 HTML//EN"> <HTML> <HEAD>   <META content=3Dtext/html;charset=3Diso-8859-1 = http-equiv=3DContent-Type> <META content=3D'"MSHTML 4.72.2106.6"' name=3DGENERATOR> </HEAD> <BODY bgColor=3D#ffffff> <DIV><FONT color=3D#000000 size=3D2>Maybe the list could help a couple = of friends=20 settle a friendly on-going dispute that has existed for some time=20 now.</FONT></DIV> <DIV><FONT color=3D#000000 size=3D2></FONT>&nbsp;</DIV> <DIV><FONT color=3D#000000 size=3D2>This little discussion can probably = best be=20 summarized as:&nbsp; <U>is it necessary to pump the swell pedal on a = pipe organ=20 to emphasize downbeats?</U></FONT></DIV> <DIV><FONT color=3D#000000 size=3D2></FONT>&nbsp;</DIV> <DIV><FONT color=3D#000000 size=3D2>There are corollary questions such = as: can there=20 be downbeats without a swell pedal?&nbsp; Are tracker organs better than =   electro-pneumatic organs for this purpose?&nbsp; Should organists really = care=20 about downbeats at all?
