I haven't had the chance to hook this up to an amplifier = yet so I can't answer. The "drawbars" may only be rheostats like a model of the Yamahas of some years ago. Hard to tell. I'll get back to you.

(back) Subject: Rochester TO Concert Reminder (x-posted) From: "Ken Evans" <kevans1@rochester.rr.com> Date: Wed, 13 Sep 2000 11:18:20 -0400   Just a reminder that you are invited to be our guests (FREE) when we open our 2000/2001 season of nine concerts at the Auditorium Center, 875 East Main Street, Rochester, NY 14605 this Saturday, Sept. 16th. At 8 p.m. the latest ATOS "Organist of the Year," Charlie Balogh, will preside at the console of the RTOS 4/22 Wurlitzer for this very entertaining event. All = we ask in return is that you fill out a coupon at the door or fill out the admission form available on our website.   Why do we offer a free concert to start our season? Our experience has shown that once newcomers hear a concert, many will join RTOS as members = and remain as members for many years.   If you join at this concert, you will obtain free bonus admission to our remaining year 2000 concerts (featuring Scott Foppiano, John Atwell and Barry Baker) plus membership privileges and free admission to concerts during the whole year 2001 BTW, membership includes free attendance not only for you, but also includes your spouse and minor children (or for single members includes you and an adult guest). Full membership is only $35 a year while associate membership (available only to those who have a permanent residence more than 50 miles from Rochester) is a mere $17.50 = per year.     The driving directions from the east, west and south directions (Lake Ontario is to Rochester's north) plus the rest of the season's schedule, pictures of the installation, chamber layouts and stoplist plus membership information may be found at our home on the web at http://theatreorgans.com/rochestr/ . Please be our guests on Sept. 16, you'll be glad you came.   Regards, Ken Evans, President

(back) Subject: Whitelegg Mollers From: "Will Scarboro" <whs1325@garnet.acns.fsu.edu> Date: Wed, 13 Sep 2000 13:57:09 -0400     Whitelegg Mollers are organs built between 1931 and his death in 1944. = One of the very first ones is the Philly Auditorium organ. Another fine = example is at Wilson College in Pennsylvania.   Sincerely,   Will Scarboro      
(back) Subject: IMPORTANT - PLEASE READ From: "Administrator" <admin@pipechat.org> Date: Wed, 13 Sep 2000 16:34:55 -0500   The final part of my move is taking place over these next couple of days. The servers are being moved from Florida up here to Little Rock. Because of this there might be some "oddities" happening with mail over the next few days. If you send something off to the list and it ends up going to the old server it might not appear for a day or so back in your mailbox. This will happen especially for those of you that are in the Digest mode. But once the machines from Florida arrive here that mail will be sent out.   I have tried to update the subscriber list on the server which is running here in Little Rock already so there shouldn't be any problems with someone getting dropped from the list. But again, there might be some "oddities" happening. By Saturday afternoon , the servers from Florida will be here and running so by then everything will be running correctly.   Because some of this involves changing the name servers that serve the PipeChat domain, you might also get something where your mail can't be delivered immediately to the list. If this happens, your mail server will continue to attempt to deliver the mail to the list server for several days so your posting will eventually get through to the list. But there might be a delay.   Sorry for the inconvenience during this period, I have attempted to keep everything up and running as normal as possible but during this section of the transition there are several factors that I have no control over that might cause some problems.   Thanks for your patience with all of this.   David **************************************** David Scribner Owner / Co-Administrator PipeChat   http://www.pipechat.org mailto:admin@pipechat.org
