There is one publisher who is providing copies run off the computer of previously out of print music. That is Lorenz Corpration in Dayton, OH.

(back) Subject: used organs From: Rod Murrow <murrows@pldi.net> Date: Thu, 06 May 1999 23:04:26 -0500   Greetings; I run the risk here of getting lambasted again - I hope I'm resilient enough to absorb the blows!   I know that Allen and Rodgers are often considered the top pair of electronic organs, at least in the US (although other brands are getting more and more competitive). I have recently contacted a Rodgers dealer who is trading for a 1991 Baldwin 2-manual drawknob organ that sounds like (1) a stoplist I can adapt to readily and (2) a price that will fit much easier into my checkbook than any other I've found (less than $5K US).   I've played on a few Baldwin organs here and there, but none newer than about a 1982 vintage. What say you? Am I better to avoid this instrument? Might it be a "good deal"? What should I watch out for...or what should I expect...with a Baldwin instrument?   Thanks for sharing your opinions.   Rod Murrow    
(back) Subject: another success From: "Carlo Pietroniro" <concert_organist@hotmail.com> Date: Fri, 07 May 1999 00:13:49 EDT   greetings,   well, I'm home and the concert went very well. The turn-out was great (the doorman counted over 500). The fact that the organ is way up in the loft didn't faze the audience's enthusiasm. They had a microphone up there so my introductions before each piece weren't omitted. The only thing I didn't like was the fact that they couldn't see me. The last concert I played there, they set up a video camera and a large-screen TV on the top step of the sanctuary, allowing the audience to see my pedalling. For my encore I played the toccata in 7 by John Rutter. It was a huge success and all the money raised went to the Montreal Children's Hospital. At 10$ a pop, we raised over 5000$. I play several fund-raising concerts per year, and this was one of them. The concert was recorded, and as soon as i can get my hands on a copy (after it's been copied from reel-to-reel to standard cassette), I'll offer it to list members. And now, for my final number, I'm having a nice glass of wine with my parents to celebrate a job well done.   Carlo     ______________________________________________________ Get Your Private, Free Email at http://www.hotmail.com

(back) Subject: re: stop noise......... From: Innkawgneeto@webtv.net (N Brown) Date: Fri, 7 May 1999 01:45:40 -0400 (EDT)   Jon, I don't mean to imply that I have to WAIT that long. It's really just a fraction of a second, if that. And, when the organ was installed, I had the voicer adjust the sliders so they would be as close to instantaneous as possible. A good organist knows how to work around those inevitable "quirks" that every instrument has (whatever they are). The beauty of "my" organ's sound and the ease of using the console far outweigh the split second delay when the sliders move into position. --Neil

(back) Subject: Re: afflictions From: Innkawgneeto@webtv.net (N Brown) Date: Fri, 7 May 1999 02:14:40 -0400 (EDT)   Carpel tunnel syndrome can be a very real problem for pianists and organists. Any time the hand is engaged in repetitive motions for too long; doesn't matter what the vocation is. This is another reason for there to be a look at the AGO specs for consoles, bench heights, etc. --Neil    
(back) Subject: Rodgers organs + Leslie speakers From: "Carlo Pietroniro" <concert_organist@hotmail.com> Date: Fri, 07 May 1999 02:23:41 EDT   greetings,   Now, before anyone cringes at the thought of it, let me explain. A friend of mine is selling his Hammond and buying an Rodgers. He offered to sell me one of his Leslie tone-cabinets. Because they're so hard to find and worth a lot, I might take him up on his offer. He wants 50$ for it, which is a steal. I was wondering how my organ would sound connected to it, then I quickly got that crazy idea out of my head. It is tempting, but there's no way I'm going to play Bach fugues alla 'gospel/blues' style. Can you imagine how a Rodgers would sound with the Leslies on full? *hehe*   Carlo     ______________________________________________________ Get Your Private, Free Email at http://www.hotmail.com  
(back) Subject: carpal tunnel syndrome From: Bud/burgie <budchris@earthlink.net> Date: Thu, 06 May 1999 23:22:42 -0700   I had the operation on my right hand and wasn't able to play for three years. THEN they found out it was arthritic bone spurs pressing on my spine, and not carpal tunnel at all, but I was locked into the Worker's Comp doctors-make-money mill. Most real carpal tunnel can be taken care of by more ergonomic computer workstations, alternative therapies (when I could afford it, acupuncture relieved the symptoms for up to 24 hours), and careful practice habits ... check out the "Alexander Method" of relaxation ... there's probably a website, and Roberta Gary gives workshops on it as it touches on organists' problems.   Cheers,   Bud

I think they only fed the flute channel through the Leslie, which would be fine for gospel music.
