(back) Subject: Re: X-post: A Casavant problem!! From: <TRACKELECT@cs.com> Date: Tue, 19 Dec 2000 16:46:10 EST   Here is a novel approach; Why doesn't someone call up this service guy and =   just flat out tell him that he has a bad reputation and ask him why he has =   not fixed this seemingly minor problem. If I as an organbuilder was = getting a bad reputation I would sure appreciate such a call. I service several = organs that have unrepaired problems that might seem minor but actually require several hours or more to repair. I have notified the church authorities of =   them and they have either opted to leave them or wait until the organ is rebuilt. This is how good organmen can get a bad rep. When a service = contract is drawn up it is usually for tuning and minor repairs. I have seen = organists get their nose out of joint because the organman would not revoice entire ranks or releather windchests on a service visit. However, this 'Cassavant =   problem' does seem like it is minor but the point I am making is that it = may not be. Organ service people are not doing a public service. We have bills = to pay too. When a service visit has been estimated at two hours and a = problem comes up that will take an hour and a half to fix that does not leave = enough time to tune and get to the next church on time. This string is an interesting one and I can hardly wait to find out what the problem really = is. I could go on and on about my experiences with organ service people and = their widely varying levels of service and organists and their widely varying expectations but I hate long posts and this is turning into one. Speaking = of long posts, has anyone heard from Desertbob?   Alan B
