I really don't know squat about reed = organs - was going on anecdotal description. However, as TP actions go the = Estey's were the best. The old Mollers with the membrane chests were one of the reasons that TP got such a bad rap. What I'm really interested in is the Haskell - Estey connection.

(back) Subject: Re: Estey From: "Wendy S. Coleman, MD" <wcoleman@facstaff.wisc.edu> Date: Mon, 03 Apr 2000 23:00:16 -0500   Estey did make a 2manual, pedal electropneumatic reed organ from the early 1930's until the 1950's when they altered the configuration somewhat and called the organ the "Virtuoso" Model. Both of these reed organs were = built to "AGO" specs. The Virtuoso action is better described as = electropneumatic (magnet operating air pressure pouch) key action and electromagnetic stop action (magnet operating stop and coupler mechanism). I've completely rebuilt an 11 rank 1939 2mp electropneumatic Estey. It is a clone of any electropneumatic pipe organ of the same vintage. Estey never built an = organ with a tubular pneumatic action - lots of trackers and this odd EP organ. = I am currently restoring an 11 rank 1922 Estey TP pipe organ. It too had = the brass tubing. The organ will be restored (rebuilt actually) with EP = action. It is incredible so see how Estey solved so many technical problems with cleaver mechanical ideas - the ball bearing valves that operated the coupler mechanism, the creshendo mechanism, etc. They used first class materials - interior console wood is clear maple. It is a pleasure to work on an Estey instrument - although I'd prefer to be working on a tracker instrument.   I was out to Brattleboro Vt last summer and had arranged to see the Estey factory files which included the blueprints for this 1922 Pipe organ. I also was able to purchase the correspondence between Estey and the Dodgeville WI Church who purchased it. Digging in the UW Music School library, I found diagrams for most of the EP Tubular and electroppneumatic action - And then there are some very wonderful organ builder/techs who have provided additional help in my Pipe organ adventure.

(back) Subject: Re: small pipe organ for sale--Now combined with the Haskell Connection for Alan From: <GRSCoLVR@aol.com> Date: Tue, 4 Apr 2000 01:45:58 EDT   Hi Listers, and particularly John and Alan -- John--I have read with interest the various posts on the tubular pneumatic =   action Estey you have "discovered". Having worked with a few of these in = the last 40 years,,,these are my observations and are not hearsay nor = anecedotal. A well restored Estey TP action is quite quick in response, sluggishness = is usually the cause of improper materials used in recovering and or = adjusting the action. Another cause of sluggishness is improper setting/adjustment = of coupler "relays". Also a cause of sluggishness is the lead tubing (but = not with brass) due to lead oxide deposits inside the tubing making passage of =   air difficult and slowing its speed down, the same holds true for lead = tubing from tracker bars to valve pouches in player piano mechanisms, and they = are way shorter runs than usually encountered in a TP Pipe organ. The brass tubing does tend to crystallize a bit with age and careful handling is required. There is an out of print English book on pipe organ actions, and =   its prime focus is TP action by the various builders and how to deal with them. This book is titled *Modern Organ Building" by W & T Lewis,,,and published in 1923 by Wm Reeves in London and the copy I have is the second =   edition. I secured mine thru Amazon.com, it was a fairly long search and a =   bit pricey but extremely good descriptions and drawings. It is interesting = to note that the first EP action that Estey used was just a variation of = their TP action, and invented by William E. Haskell, substituting a "plunger" type magnet to pull up the primary exhaust valve, and that chest work that = I have observed is identical to the last form of Estey TP action. I have = never observed the "dread" membrane and bar type TP chest so often maligned on these lists,,,however, I have worked with EP treble offset chests as practiced by Hilgreen-Lane that are of the membrane and bar type, and with =   careful work, have had no trouble with restoring them to perfect action. The Haskell Connection-- William E. Haskell worked for his father in the organ building business in =   Philadelphia before he migrated to the Estey Company, and the first = Haskell type pipe was patented in 1909. All the Haskell type of pipes were = patented and a search of the patent office should bring up the various patents that = he held on these Haskell pipes,,,the labial *reedless* pipes, the TP coupler mechanism he patented, and the improved flush toilet valve. William E. Haskell's father was a prolific inventor as well in the pipe organ field, having co-invented the Roosevelt pneumatic, and the keyboard form of stop control is attributed to Haskell senior. Bill VanPelt of the Organ Historical Society along with David H. Cox wrote = an article on the inventions of William E. Haskell a number of years ago,,but =   the exact date escapes me. Hope this helps you both. Regards, ---Roc L V Rockafellow
