It's TP (ick!), but fully releathered, all lead replaced with vinyl and plastic, so it should be quite servicable.   Just spritz some maple syrup aroma into the air and you TOO can have that Estey "Noo England" atmosphere in YOUR house!   DesertBawB

(back) Subject: Re: Residence organ for sale From: <Quilisma@socal.rr.com> Date: Wed, 02 Aug 2000 10:42:42 -0700   AW, be NICE, Bawb! An Estey Model "L" (I think it was) was the very FIRST pipe organ I ever laid hands on, at age nine.   It was guarded by a stereotypical old-maid schoolteacher with the usual = nasal accoutrements and Model-T headlight glasses (grin). When she went on vacation, the key to "her" organ went with her ... UNTIL the Methodist = Church got a new pastor. He took one look at the situation, took a pair of bolt-cutters to the lock, opened the organ, turned on the cement-mixer, pointed at the bench, and thundered "PLAY!" to me (I'd been playing the = big reed organ in the Sunday School assembly room, but never the pipe organ).   There was one difference in the stop-list ... the Swell was 8' Salicional, = 8' Stopped Diapason, and a LOVELY 4' Harmonic Flute. The rest was identical.   Years later, I used to go back and play occasionally for friends' weddings and funerals ... Miss Addie had retired by then ... T/P or not, I recall = the action as being light and responsive.   The "Hammond"-like little keyboard that controlled the stops WAS a little cumbersome, though ... it was alternating naturals (with the stop-names printed on the ends) and sharps (or flats ... take your pick). You = depressed the natural to engage the stop (it locked down) and the sharp/flat above = it to release it ... didn't make for quick stop changes, but with only six manual ranks, it didn't matter a whole lot.   There was an Estey on e-bay awhile back with considerably MORE stops that still had the little keyboard to control the stops ... that must have been = a REAL nuisance.   Cheers,   Bud   Bob Scarborough wrote:   > At 08:44 AM 8/2/2000 +0100, you wrote: > >I've decided to auction my pipe organ for less than cost.

There have been pictures all over north america about that terrible ice storm, but I saw it first hand, and lived through it. We went 7 days = without power, and the water filters weren't working. We were all asked to boil water before using it.....which was difficult to do without power.   Carlo

The gist of my HamTech post alludes to the idea that Laurens Hammond and his engineering lackey, John Hanert, probably stole the idea of the "keyboard stops" from Estey, rather than come up with it on their own. However, the melding of those "reverse color" keys with the bussbar system was a stroke of genius, and made for a sort of "combination action" that wouldn't have otherwise been possible. Fully original idea? No. Brilliant = application? Yes. Hammond's organ was chock full of "borrowed" idea, right from the tonewheel generator itself, a miniaturized version of Cahill's "Telharmonium" of the early 1900's. He even tried to usurp Tesla/Westinghouse's synchronous AC motor, trying to patent it as his own, which did not stand up in court.   DeserTBoB
