(back) Subject: EmbarASSing Organ Question From: Richard Schneider <arpncorn@davesworld.net> Date: Mon, 12 Apr 1999 09:38:46 -0700   I've been following this thread with some amusement. There's not been much time for me to write as of late, as I try to catch up on 3-month's-worth of work that has accumulated while our house was renovated and I had to "babysit" it!   Most bench tops are finished with lacquer, and depending upon the maker of the finish, it never really does set-up completely. It is also particularly vulnerable to heat, and when one places one's posterior in the appropriate (and generally the exact same) position for an hour or more weekly (or more frequently with rehearsals and organ practice), the finish is going to soften.   I go with Dennis Goward's suggestion of re-finishing the bench top. However, what I would recommend is some of that bar-top type finish. Simply strip away the existing finish, re-stain so that the top matches the rest of the bench, and apply this stuff several times, using steel wool between the coats to get a nice smooth finish (or whatever the directions recommend).   You'll find this to be much better than using a towel or (Heaven forbid!) WAX!   Get to the root cause of the problem, rather than simply trying to "doctor" a repair!   You should be able to do this in the course of a week, working on it a few hours each evening. You MAY have to forego a Wednesday with the bench (hopefully, you've got something you can rig-up as a temporary substitute, even if it's nothing more than some Cement blocks and a piece of plywood for the interim.   Hope this helps!   Faithfully, -- / ^ ^ \ { (O) (O) } --------oOOOo--------U-------oOOOo------------   "Arp" in the "Corn Patch"   Richard Schneider, President SCHNEIDER PIPE ORGANS, Inc.

(back) Subject: Re: Embarrassing Organ related problem From: theorganist@webtv.net (William Lengyel) Date: Mon, 12 Apr 1999 16:18:56 -0400 (EDT)   Have been following organ bench thread. From being in the refinishing business many years ago, Vic is correct. Older benches were finished with lacquer or shellac. Good finishes, but those "Lemony scented" polishes we have been told are so great cause a build up of "wax" (oil) which also deteriorates (softens) the finish. Causing a sticky mess when moisture hits it. You can first try removing the wax build up with an oil soap and 0000 steel wool. That may also remove some of the finish though. If that doesn't do the trick use 0000 steel wool and mineral spirits VERY CAREFULLY AND IN A WELL VENTILATED AREA. Always rub WITH the grain, never against it. Do not allow either to "soak" in, it will lift the grain.   Most wood finishes on organ/piano benches in the past 15 years are polyurethane. Never use spray wax. That is akin to using pledge on your cars finish. Instead use a good quality paste wax, if necessary. Oil based waxes should only be used on wood that doesn't have a sealer on them. (Hand rubbed oiled walnut for example).   Hope this helps, but remember, it isn't the fault of your glutemus maximus. It's caused by an over abundance of furniture polish. :-)   Bill Miami, Fl    
(back) Subject: Fw: 128' Pedal Stops From: "Roger" <rah@dircon.co.uk> Date: Mon, 12 Apr 1999 23:13:37 +0100   Hi list,   Yes, the organ is listed in the NPOR but the listing raises some queries - like the lack of an address for the church (it is just described as "St. Michael, City of London") and the statement "Address or organ specification doubtful". It looks like a wonderful instrument - but, I wonder, does it really exist?? Perhaps one of our knowledgeable UK list members might be able to comment?   Richard Pinel originally raised this matter and mentioned that he had come across a reference to a 128-foot stop in an instrument on the Discworld. I've done a little bit of research and it would appear that the 128-foot stop that Richard refers to in his message is reputed to be part of a little-known pipe organ which is housed in the Great Hall of Unseen University in Ankh-Morpork, the principal trading port on the Discworld.   Information about this organ is not plentiful; however it is a three-manual instrument and is said to be one of the most versatile instruments known to pre-electronic mankind, having a range of controls seldom before encountered in the organ-building world. The large range of special effects enable composers to explore whole new areas of music-making - Bubbla's "Variations on a Man Taking His Foot Out of a Pile of Mud" works particularly well on the instrument. At the first performance of Fondel's "Double Top Overture" the audience were mystified that they could hear nothing but were being stunned by falling bats. It is the only organ in the world upon which it is possible to play an entire symphony scored for thunderstorm and squashed toad noises. The crescendo at the end of the first movement of Bubbla's "Catastrophe Suite" requires the use of the 'Afterburner' feature.   The organ is the "magnum opus" of Bergholt Stuttley Johnson ("Bloody Stupid" Johnson), who also built the slightly smaller organ in Ankh-Morpork's Opera House. Readers who have some knowledge of English landscape gardening will be familiar with the name Lancelot "Capability" Brown. "Capability" Brown produced some of the country's finest landscaped parks and gardens. "Bloody Stupid" Johnson was also a landscape gardener - but a broadly incompetent one, as well as being considerably unskilled in the fields of civic statuary and large musical instruments. Johnson also constructed the "Patent 'Typhoon' Superior Indoor Ablutorium With Automatic Soap Dish" - after all, one set of plumbing is much the same as another and, to him, all pipes were pretty much the same.   No stop-list is currently available for the organ in Unseen University. This is possibly because the University Organist (and Librarian) is an orang-utan who guards the instrument very possessively against all intruders. However his prehensile toes and extra-long arms are very helpful in his role of organist, enabling him to use all of the many facilities of the console with speed and agility.   No-one now is allowed to use the "Terraemotus Pedal", which opens up the 128-foot stop known as "The Earthquake". On the first occasion when it was used, the sixteen university students who were doing the pumping for the organ were sucked into the machinery, the population of a quarter of the city of Ankh-Morpork experienced acute bowel discomfort and the Great Hall of Unseen University moved a quarter of an inch sideways. Following a hastily-convened joint meeting of the City and University authorities a firm instruction was issued that on no account was this stop ever again to be drawn. A notice to this effect is reported to hang from the stop-knob to this day ......   I hope that this information might be of help ......   Roger Hedley Watford UK   ---------- > From: Aida van de Brake <Celeste@cable.A2000.nl> > To: piporg-l the list <PIPORG-L@LISTSERV.ALBANY.EDU>; Pipe Chat - TheList <pipechat@pipechat.org> > Subject: Re: 128' Pedal Stops > Date: 12 April 1999 08:26 > > Hi Everyone, > > Sorry if I'm not being very original, but I wasn't joking about the organ   > on the "The British Institute of Organ Studies"-site, cross my heart. > > http://www.bios.org.uk/npor.html > > click <index> --> type "N07816" --> click <submit query> > > My favorite is stop #105!! > > Cheers, > > Aida.

Thanks to those people we have amassed enough funds to releather all the chests for our high school organ project. (And we won't have to move this stuff!)   As we emptied out more boxes we came accross the following that we'd like to liquidate:   Do-it-your-selfers note!   1 61 x 21 XY switching matrix, It has 61 magnets to operate a contact bar each which in turn can contact any one of 21 magnet operated contact bars. Looks like it would allow any of 21 stops to be connected to a keyboard. The coils are black, and the contacts are made with wires. Does anyone know who might have made this device?   It is in very good shape (well... maybe a few bent wires) Looks like it would be great for a home project. Asking $ 200.00   In that same vein we also found 3 Klann (new) gang switches 61,61 and 32 notes respectively. Asking $120 for all three.   The we have a Klann-like affair with two coils operating 61 note gangs on common busses. Used, but needs a little work. $25   And for another $10 we have 4 Allen 15 contact switches non profesionally on a board plus a single contact relay making for 61 notes.     All items FOB. $325 would take it all.   Then there is still a Cornopean. 61 notes. A few broken mitres. Asking 375 FOB   Thanks for your support!   John V       Finally, is there any interest in wooden ranks? So far it's mostly metal that went

I once served a church where the custodian decided to do me a "favor" by waxing and polishing the bench. Of course, no one told me. The next Sunday I confidently slid on to the bench and nearly went sailing off the other end into the choir pews. A towel might be a solution. I also would suggest that, if time permits, you get off the bench for a few minutes during the service. Give you both a chance to dry off. You also could use the towel to surreptitiously wipe your bodily fluids off the bench. This is important, anyway, because I know from experience that human sweat can ruin the finish on an organ bench. Maynard

I'll let you know if I find it. > > Cheers, > > Aida.   I LOVE having all the conversational fun associated with 128' stops!!   Richard and Aida: I've been away for a while, and have caught this thread in the center, so excuse me if this has already been stated by someone else. But, A) the "Gravississima 128'" would be a resultant using the root and fifth of a 64' stop, or the root and third ( and sometimes the fifth too) of a 32' stop. B) I don't believe there were any of these full-length 128' stops ever built, even though one WOULD fit unmitered (exposed and decorated maybe?) in some of these modern-day public buildings, including the our giant North American shopping malls. As I would love to butcher a (previously dead, of course) 16' Posuane into a 1/4 length 128' stop, it would only be a novelty, as at 4 Hz, the tones would be unrecognizable to the human ear; the only way to tune would be to find the correct frequencies and count beats/second using a nice, loud watch that ticks at 1 Hz. At tones this low, a large margin of error (within about 1Hz either way) is acceptable.   You CAN listen to the tone for yourself, either by forming the proper brass instrument tounging technique, or by forming your toung as saying "t," hold in upward position, so that the area behind the toung is airtight and can hold pressure, and blow through your mouth, letting the air escape through *closed* lips. Lifting the center of the toung raises the pitch, and lowering does opposite. It (toung) has to be pretty tight to get down to 8 and 4 Hz. The tone reverberates in your head, but sounds strange to anyone else, so don't go doing it in public...they'll think you are crazy. Then take your watch...if you can count quickly, you can decide a tone all the way from 128' CCCCCC up to about 32' CCCC. Also, using another instrument as a reference, you can take things "down an octave or two...or three" in your head. An organbuilder friend of mine taught me this interesting way of seeing what something would sound like with "a little more bass..." Just remember: 128' = 4 Hz, 64' = 8 Hz, 32' = 16 Hz, and so on. There is also a formula for finding any pitch at A=440 Hz (a-0). I can't remember it now, but will get my "little black book" and find it; will post tomorrow.

This reminds me of an experiment somebody told me about where a > really big trumpet-of-sorts that sounded at 4Hz and 2Hz was demonstrated at a > convention--supposedly it caused pain for everybody when sounded!   Yes, the U.S. Government knows this as well; they like to test ultra low frequency waves for defense purposes, as well as long range communication underwater. Anyone care to elaborate?? All I've really heard is rumors. BUT, is it thought that prolonged exposure to even 32' and 64' stops can be painful for an "organ crawler." If I build a 128' stop, it will be just a reed, with a short resonator, so the sound can't really form a "harmful resonation/tone." I think they based a science-fiction show episode on this concept once... I think it was "X-Files" or something?   Anywho, back to organs...the new weapon of choice. ;-) Tee-hee-hee...   krc
