I haven't worked on a new Peterson relay = since '90 and I understand that they have a line of computer controlled relays = now. In any case the first thing that I would check is the connection to the driver boards. These have always been troublesome. Loose joints, = intermittent contact. Who did the wiring? When all else fails call Gary Rickert at Peterson.   Good luck: Alan B.

(back) Subject: Re: Keyboard Systems From: <RonSeverin@aol.com> Date: Mon, 25 Sep 2000 14:21:27 EDT   Hi R.J.:   We used one of their midi's on our job here in CA. Everything worked fine except the Crecsendo pedal. It takes 30-40 seconds to withdraw a full crescendo. They didn't have a workaround to fix it. So I don't use the crecsendo pedal. Try Musicom. They have a small unit that does a lot of things, including midi. http://www.musicomusa.com/   Also try Gerald Cluff, he may have a workable solution. http://www.cluff.net/used.htm   All the best,   Ron Severin

(back) Subject: Re: Moller Organs! From: "Nelson And Tracy Denton" <ndenton@cgocable.net> Date: Sun, 24 Sep 2000 02:28:59 -0400   Sorry Noel but organs have been free to import into Canada for many years.   There was a Duty and Sales Excise Tax on "organ parts" It was about 23% total but not on complete "organs" A very annoying problem, for builders = in Canada for many years. We couldn't import organ "parts" free but people could import "entire organs" into Canada duty free. The reason given was that there were NO pipe organ companies in Canada!!   The only way around the problem was to declare the instrument a "War Memorial". Parts for these were "duty" free.   We repeatedly pointed out Casavant and several other major builders in Canada to Customs Canada and finally we got a change after much hard work.   Janine and I worked hard to get this changed and it was completely removed with the Nafta agreement some years ago Also many changes came into effect with the GST.   It also helped when one of the top brass from Customs Canada wanted some grill cloth for his church organ. We were able to point out the problems with the system to somebody who would listen and finally they changed it.   American organ men often worked in Canada I was in direct competition with many companies from Buffalo and area. However we could not work in the = U.S. without a Green Card. etc.   Now paperwork is confined to paying the 7% GST and getting a "Certificate of Origin" signed by the suppliers, their lawyers, their great grandmothers-in-law, 3 Supreme Court Justices, in blood and sworn to by = the Cow that gave it's life to make the leathers. In triplicate, attached to = the outside of every box, with every T crossed and every I dotted and/or . . = .. .. . .   A good Customs Broker   Sheeesh!!! It gets annoying.   P. S.   There are many U.S. built organs in Ontario I service and have serviced = many Mollers, Aeolines etc.   Canada is only 1/10th the size of the U.S. So U.S. built organs will = always be fewer in number up here.   Also we did have 200 piano and organ companies in Canada in the 19th and 20th centuries so we were able to produce many hundreds of thousands more pianos and organs than we needed locally.   Sadly ALL of the piano companies are long dead now.         > I think you will find there is very little of anything from the U.S. anywhere > in Canada, considering the 25% duty on American organs (and pianos), which, > thanks to NAFTA, is now being reduced gradually.
