If it's got tonewheels, there'll be a rating plate on the back of =   the cabinet or inside near the amps. If it hasn't got tonewheels, look = for a sticker underneath the right hand end of the manuals.   External Leslies will have a rating plate on the largest section of the back panels saying what model it is. The amp will also have a = model # onboard, but this may or may not be the # for the entire unit (ie both 147 and 145 Leslies have amps that say 147).   FWIW, there's a kind of "ID for Dummies" guide covering tonewheel =   models stuck up on my home page. Pardon the e-cobwebs, the place is overdue for an overhaul. = http://www.geocities.com/khyrstye/idfordummies.html   Have fun! Ad ;->

Also, there should be a model plate on the back panel of the Leslie.   DeserTBoB > >HD > > >"Pipe Up and Be Heard!" >PipeChat: A discussion List for pipe/digital organs & related topics >HOMEPAGE : http://www.pipechat.org >List: mailto:pipechat@pipechat.org >Administration: mailto:admin@pipechat.org >Subscribe/Unsubscribe: mailto:requests@pipechat.org > > > >  
(back) Subject: Montreal organs From: "Judy A. Ollikkala" <71431.2534@compuserve.com> Date: Sat, 12 Aug 2000 14:19:55 -0400   I beg to differ with the Montreal organ survey, surveys generally are incorrect, and just glancing at the specific list of pipe organs shows at least one error, there are 3 von Beckeraths in Montreal, we heard all 3 at the OHS Convention last year. 1.St. Joseph Oratory played by Raymond Daveluy and Rachel Lauren 2. Immaculate Conception played by Bernard Lagace 3. St. Andrew's Dominion/Douglas United played by John Grew   My Quebec Pipe Organ book shows well over 100 pipe organs alone in Montreal. I do not even see mentioned pipe organs in Montreal built by Helmut Wolff, Karl Wilhelm, Gabriel Kney, Ruffatti, Letourneau, Louis Mitchell, Brunzema, Hook & Hastings, Tamburini, Wicks. They do exist. I'm wondering exactly who did this survey? Judy Ollikkala  
(back) Subject: CD: Sykes--Leipzig Chorales From: <Cremona502@cs.com> Date: Sat, 12 Aug 2000 14:30:20 EDT   I have just spend the morning listening again to Peter Sykes new recording = of Bach's Leipzig Chorales.   He is playing the new Noack at Langholtskirkja in Reykjavik, Iceland. The =   spec: GREAT Bourdon 16 Diapason 8 2nd Diapason 8 Chimney Flute 8 Octave 4 Twelfth 2-2/3 Fifteenth 2 Tierce 1-3/5 Mixture IV-VI Trumpet 8   POSITIVE Gedackt 8 Quintadena 8 Principal 4 Recorder 4 Fifteenth 2 Superoctave 1 Cornet III Scharp III-V Cremona 8   SWELL Gedackt 8 Viola 8 Principal 4 Chimney Flute 4 Principal2 Quinte 1-1/3 Schalmey 8 Clarion 4   PEDAL Diapason 16 Bourdon 16 Octave 8 Choral Bass 4 Mixture IV Trombone 16 Trumpet 8   Positive to Great Swell to Great Swell to Positive Great to Pedal Positive to Pedal Swell to Pedal   Tremulant two adjustable combination pedals (mechanica) for Great and Pedal   These chorales are wonderfully played and combine enjoyment of Bach's creativity in composition with Fritz Noack's artistry in building an instrument with such an extensive pallette of sound. Peter Sykes = registeres each piece carefully giving attention to the colours of each stop individually as well as in contrast to each other. This organ has very = warm Diapasons which are seldom heard alone in many venues, but here are used = to display not only their own warmth, but the intricate movement of Bach's esquisite harmonic creativity. Most of the pieces were very gently presented; only the Fastasia super (Komm, heiliger Geist - BWV 651) was = IMHO too fast and frenzied, the hamonic intricacies being lost in the rush. = This is contrasted with the Trio super: Herr Jesus Christ (BWV 655) which displayed wonderful control but with excited movement, and the NunKommm = (BWV 661) in which PS really seemed to being enjoying "testing" the temperament = of the instrument. The playing is very sensitive, and this is a wonderful combination of artist and venue... even the acoustics are good. A very = nice trio, indeed!   Bruce Cremona502@cs.com in the Beagles' Nest with the Baskerbeagles visit the Cornely pack at Holwling Acres: Ourworld.cs.com/Brucon502  
(back) Subject: Re: Montreal organs From: "Carlo Pietroniro" <concert_organist@hotmail.com> Date: Sat, 12 Aug 2000 14:30:34 -0400   that survey is indeed incomplete, and I know there are 3 Beckeraths here = in Montreal. I live here and I play many, if not all of these organs on a regular basis. I'm very curious about something though. Where are the Ruffattis and Gabriel Kney organs located (which churches)? The survey was done by students of the organ department of McGill university, under the direction of John Grew. He was, at one time, head of the organ department. = I don't know if he still is though. Rachel Laurin is one of my favorite organists living here in Montreal, and she's also a very dear friend of mine.   Carlo

(back) Subject: Hammond G-100 for sale From: "Carlo Pietroniro" <concert_organist@hotmail.com> Date: Sat, 12 Aug 2000 23:24:52 -0400   Okay, it's final. The pastor at the church (St. Ignatius of Loyola), here = in Montreal, called me after supper and told me that the wardens voted to purchase a new organ. The search commitee is going to start looking on Monday. The organ (along with all the accessories) will be moved down to = the basement of the church tomorrow morning after all the masses. I asked if I could play at the masses tomorrow, just to give it one last blast, and he said yes. The organ is not for sale to the general public. He's seeling it to me for 500$, then I'll sell it to whomever I want. He's allowing me to keep it in the basement of the church until I find a buyer. When it's = moved tomorrow, I'll make sure it's set up and playable, in case anyone is interested. It comes with 13 speakers; 9 for the main organ and 4 for the antiphonal. If need be, we can put the speakers back in their original cabinets. The original reciept says it was bought in 1965 from a Hammond dealer here in Montreal, which makes it 35 years old. This organ is in = mint condition. All stops work, all contacts, all pistons and toe studs are flawless. It's even been polished every week, so it not only plays like = the day it was built, but it looks like it as well. If anyone's interested, e-mail me privately.   Carlo

I could get this and have DOUBLE HamGod status! (The Model E already gives me singular status; owning a G-100 would give = me a split personality!) Ad, also of HamTech, is closer by in Ontario, and MaHc Mercier, HamTech listowner, is in Noo Hampstah, and has a truck for which to move it over to Ontario with! Perhaps, Ad will be the FIRST "dual" HamGod persona!   DeserTBoB 1938 Model E
