Probably a 6SN7 tube. I'm spreading the word on the Hammond list! If I wasn't in CA, I'd pick it up myself! It's amazing = what one can do with a tonewheel Hammond, with a little knowledge and patience. Personally, I already have the ORIGINAL Concert Model, the rare Model E, = ca. 1938...<sniffing haughtily>.   DeserTBoB

Well, the last time I was in the hospital, =   the Eucharist was carried around by a Eucharistic Minister of the Roman Catholic Church. That's why he is called the Eucharistic Minister. I = assume that if he were carrying the Holy Oils for Extreme Unction he would be = called the Holy Oils Minister.I have no idea where this debate is going to go = except to further alienate people. I have made it a personal policy of not discussing sex, politics or religion in favor of any one including myself. =   There is a shortage of priests. Ibelieve one of the greatest reasons is = the inability of the American Catholic Church to articulate what it really is. =   Oh, the "Faithful" will make it what they want but what does being RC = really stand for. It's whatever the local Priest, Bishop and or Cardinal wants it = to subject to the whims of the Priests Senate, the Bishop's Synod and ( = whoever won the last NCAA series, tongue in cheek) So, if you don't like this diocese, go to the next. They might even change the language to Esperanto = so it is really different and a really religious experience. Oh well. That = is why I practice my music at home and keep it to myself. Take Care, Paul

God forbid! I haven't heard but a few American organs that were not too loud. If reducing the wind pressure would make them gentle and pleasant.... REDUCE REDUCE!!!   Although, the beautiful and gentle organs of the 19 century were usually on around 3", I think.

(back) Subject: (Xpost) Felix Hell Recitals From: Innkawgneeto@webtv.net (N Brown) Date: Fri, 10 Sep 1999 01:22:32 -0400 (EDT)   Friends, I have been asked to post young Felix Hell's recital schedule. He will turn 14 on Sept. 14th, one day after arriving at the Juilliard School to begin a year of study there.   People from my church, where he performed on July 31, are saying, "What does he need to study at Juilliard for?" I think that safely sums it up, friends.   If you are in one of these areas, you should make every effort to hear this amazing young man. His technique, musicianship, and character are tops in my book.   Please excuse the cross-post, but I felt this info deserved a wider audience.
