A light beater trem on the flute would be sufficient.   A 1920(?) white oak Hinners roll top console with ivory keyboards in mint cond. and the action is not too loose either. I replaced the pedalboard with one made by Klann. The original combo action (mechanical!) still works like a charm. Yes, tongue tabs. I wanted to have a 2' flute on the pedal as well (Hohlflute) but I am out of tabs. I see restrictions as a good thing as they force me to make up my mind and to keep the project on the small end, otherwise I would be planning the specs for the bombarde! I will make preparations for a trem to affect the Hohlflue only. Thanks Rick.   Robert Eversman Mineral Point WI

I'd thoroughly enjoy that instrument week after week, and the people at St. Paul's must wonder if musical sound in heaven gets much better than this.   Cordially,   Karl E. Moyer Lancaster PA
