From a support standpoint, they are second to almost none. Like their motto says: "We're here when you need us". They have proven that on a very consistant basis.   A somewhat less costly system to consider, in that it allows for extremely flexible programming, has a lot of "bells and whistles" (such as MIDI interface for FREE!) and is virtually impervious to lightning is the Matters system, which uses Fiber-Optic cables for its transmission of data. The downside is that getting ahold of the Matters Brothers can be challenging at times, and it does involve a fair amount of programming. It's really not difficult. If you can use a PC, you can do this.   The only other "downside" is that I'm not especially thrilled with their connectors, as they're in groups of 64, instead of being "customize" for the size of cables needed, as is done with Peterson systems.   But they work nicely, and for organs up to 64 stops, especially if one anticipates any changes in the future, it is quite acceptable.   FWIW, from a builder's standpoint.   Faithfully,   "Arp"   Richard Schneider, President SCHNEIDER PIPE ORGANS, Inc.

(back) Subject: Happy Birthday Mr. Skinner!! From: "W. Scarboro" <scarboro@digital.net> Date: Fri, 15 Jan 1999 15:27:30 -0500     Dear List,   Just for your knowledge, today January 15, 1999 is Ernest M. Skinner's birthday. He was born on January 15, 1866 in Clarion, PA. 133 years ago. In celebration of this event I'd like to make a request. All of you organists out there who play Skinner organs: go to the organ and play a special rendition of Happy Birthday and/or you can play Claire de Lune by Vierne which is dedicated to E.M Skinner. He was a very interesting and influential man in the history of American Organ Building, and we're still feeling today the effects of what he started at the beginning of this century. I thank you!   Sincerely,   A fellow Skinnerite :-)   Will Scarboro *********************************** Will Scarboro, Organ Historian American Municipal Pipe Organ Research Project Organist, Pineda Presbyterian-Melbourne, FL USA 1996 OHS E.

The Devtronix and Peterson solid state relays are both diode matrix systems with separate chest magnet driver cards. Both use the same type connector pin spacing. Devtronix sells a combination stop switch/chest magnet board that makes an excellent coupler or sostenueto unit.   Later, Phil L.

(back) Subject: Skinner From: "Judy A. Ollikkala" <71431.2534@compuserve.com> Date: Fri, 15 Jan 1999 17:48:04 -0500   Sorry, my favorite close-by Skinner is 1/2 hour away and we're having an ice storm!! 1928 Opus 721, one Opus away from Woolsey Hall Skinner. We will be hearing Opus 721 on my Post-Convention Organ Crawl on July 1, 1999, Region I AGO Convention in Worcester MA June 27-30. See info. on our website: http://www.bershad.com/ago (How's that for getting in a plug?)  
(back) Subject: Re: solid state relays From: RMaryman@aol.com Date: Fri, 15 Jan 1999 19:31:49 EST   Advice related to Solid State relays.   Principle # 1 - be prepared to open your wallet wide unless you have a very modest instrument with minimal unification.   Principle # 2 - Stay with NAME BRANDed equipment. I have my preference based on numerous years of experince with several makers of Solid State products. Follow up support is REAL important from whoever you purchase your system from and all suppliers are NOT created equal!!!.   I know this wasn't very specific, but will be happy to discuss this in more detail with anyone - off list - so as not to start opinion wars.   Rick M.

Skinner, Opus #669, located in the First Church of Christ, Scientist, Syracuse, New York.   Thanks Will.   Bonnie Beth Derby orge@dreamscape.com   ---------- > From: W.
