(back) Subject: Triangle From: Kevin Cartwright <kevin1@alaweb.com> Date: Fri, 13 Mar 1998 22:03:52 -0600   I have another crazy idea: I want a triangle for the organ at church. I have no clue of where to start, but does anyone have one of these things? I'd like to ask some questions.   Kevin C. mailto:kevin1@alaweb.com  
(back) Subject: Re: Sheetrock From: "Sean Haley" <newgershwin@hotmail.com> Date: Fri, 13 Mar 1998 20:19:38 PST   To Kevin C., and everyone else, I choose to get my first organ (Gulbransen) and a synthesizer (Alesis QS8) over a car. And I must say that I have not regretted the decision yet. I only wish it could have been a pipe organ. Well I hope all goes well in the installation when it happens. Knocking out a few walls may be fun.   Good Luck, ____ | Sean M. Haley | | |Organist,Pianist,Composer,Piano Tech. | | () () ()       >Did I mention a car in my previous post?

Or you can give Don Shaw of Pipe Organ Percussions a call(he also has a catalog available). I'm sure he will be able to create something. ____ | Sean M.
