(back) Subject: Conn Needs Help! PLEASE READ THE ENTIRE THING!!!!! From: bombarde8@juno.com (Jason D. Comet) Date: Sun, 8 Mar 1998 09:38:30 -0500   I also have been looking for Coon assesories and have yet failed to find them.   This is the list that I am looking for:   Description: Model #: Headphones 59452-3 (Part #. Not Model #) Speaker Cabinet 255 Series Speaker Cabinet 256 Series Speaker Cabinet 51 Leslie Speaker Cabinet 251 Leslie Adapter Cable for 255/256 Speakers (Part # 70976-6) Pipe speakers 145 Series Pipe Speakers 146 Series   I've got this, but it doesn't help me much since I don't know where to get them:   >Conn Electronic Pipes are available in three tonal ranges: mini, >treble and low > >Treble range pipes (Series145) >Type 1 = Symmetrical >Type 2 = right elevation >Type 3 = left elevation >42 1/2" wide; 8 1/4" deep; 34" high >Weight 18 pounds > *I take it that every series has a Type 1 which is Symetrical. Right? * > >(Series 144 mini) >Type 2 = right elevation >Type 3 = left elevation >21" wide; 8 1/2" deep; 29 7/8" high >Weight 17 1/2 pounds > >(Series 146 (Low Range) >Type 2 = right elevation >Type 3 = left elevation >42 1/2 " wide; 8 1/4" deep; 63 1/2' high >Weight 40 pounds > >Base finished in walnut. >Pipes finished in gold or silver color."       I Have a V E R Y lovely Conn. 3 manuals, theatrette But, unfortunantly, It doesn't have enough 'umph' to get it to speak throughout the auditorium. (I use it in the local thearte production group). I have it siting right next to me and I love looking at it. I would like to get it to work proplerly and would like to get the pedalboard enlarged. Right now, it has a Spinet Style pedalboard (1 octave pull-down pedals).   Is there a way that I can get-a-hold of a 2 or 2.5 octave pedalboard and adapt it to the present insturment? I would probably have to build more pedal tone generators and wire them differently, but I'm up for it.   Is there a way that I could couple the manuals? I have Great couplers 16'. unison off, 4' and an Accomp to Accomp 4' only and a pedal octave coupler. The Solo has no couplers what-so-ever.   This is the stops as they apear on the insturment:   Pedal: 16 Tuba 16 Diapason 16 Bourdon Pedal 16-8 (coupler) Sustain Pedal String Bass   Accomp: 8 Tuba Horn 8 Diapason 8 Cello 8 Accomp String 8 Vox Humana Accomp to Accomp 4 8 Tibia 4 Tibia 2, 2/3 Nazard 2 Tibia Chime Harmonica   Great: 8 Brass Trumpet 8 Oboe Horn 8 Diapason 8 Viole De Orch 8 Soft String 8 Vox Humana Great to Great 16 Great Unison Off Great to Great 4 16 Tibia 8 Tibia 4 Tibia 2, 2/3 Nazard 2 Tibia 1, 3/5 Tierce 1 Fife   Tremolos: General Tremolo "L" General Tremolo "F" Tibia Leslie "TREMOLO" Tibia Leslie "CELESTE"   Solo: 16 Tuba 16 Tibia 16 Kinura 8 Trumpet 8 Orch Oboe 8 Tibia 8 Violin 8 Vox Humana 5, 1/3 Quint 4 Tibia 4 Violina 4 Sopranno Vox 2 Tibia   I also have a lot of other "Fun Do-Dads"   I may have another Conn organ on the market from the church I take my lessons at. They have one in their chapel and it has a 2 octave pedalboard in very good condition. However, they don't have anybody to keep it up for them and it isn't used that often. If I could the pedalboard and the 16 Dulciana off the pedals and also use the pedal tone generators, I'd have a V E R Y good insturment to accompany theatre productions. I could also possibly get the 5 octave manuals and tone generators. All I'd have to do is hook the tone generators up to the manuals and the.... Well, I won't go into that now. I know what I would do.   Did Conn ever make any other sounds like a Mussette or a Clarinet or an Ophicleide? If so, where can I get the voices?     I pray with all of my heart that someone would help me with this. And also answer all my questions and help me with all the speakers and tone cabinets.   Thank You All.   Jason Comet bombarde8@juno.com |\ | \ O   _____________________________________________________________________ You don't need to buy Internet access to use free Internet e-mail.

MacFarlane. Any and all help will be greatly appreciated. With Easter a month away I am getting a bit panicky.   Thanks in advance   Scott Foppiano

Mr. Hollett used to do it there, but I'm not sure if it was with brass. I believe he recorded it at some point with the then-boychoir.   Dudel
