Their reeds and strings were if anything better than Skinner at this period. There are three noteworthy Aeolian instruments surviving from the years just before the merger and these show that Skinner did not merge with an inferior company. To experience the best of the Aeolian sound you should check out one of the following: Duke University, Longwood Gardens and Memorial Presbyterian, St. Louis.   John Speller

The only thing I succeded in doing there was getting the blower switch repaired, which actually came to pass just after I left.

Before I begin to answer, let me state my credentials:   (1) I helped install the original Flentrop practice organs at Oberlin Conservatory.   (2) I led the moving and restoration of the Koehnken & Grimm tracker at = the Shrine of the Immaculata in Cincinnati.   (3) I am a VERY long-time member of the Organ Historical Society, and am WELL-aware of their guidelines.   OK, NOW (grin) ... the instrument in question is an UNTOUCHED 2/20 = Appleton of 1840 ... GG-f compass manuals, 35-pipe Swell stops with two 24-pipe bass = stops (8' Stopped Diapason and 4' Principal), two-octave pedalboard (CC-c).   After hearing it and seeing the details of the specification I concluded = two things:   (1) it is indeed a museum piece and deserves to be left alone.   (2) there are MANY later 19th and early 20th century organs available that = would serve our purposes better.   While *I* COULD tailor my service-playing and my repertoire to the = Appleton, I am coming to the end of my career. My eventual successor would probably take = one look at it and order up the biggest three-manual digital "organ" the = budget would support (grin), and the Appleton would be abandoned and/or homeless once = more.   So everybody can climb down off their various high-horses (grin). I'm not = a philistine; I'm not going to "destroy" the Appleton.   HOWEVER, I would note the following: the organ was apparently abandoned by = the church in which it was located. I have to wonder if it would have been, = had something similar to what I suggested been carried out. Many reputable = 19th century builders changed earlier instruments to C-compass, filled out = short stops, etc.; and as someone noted, builders in other countries often built = on the work of their predecessors ... Cavaille-Coll reused Cliquot's flutes and = cornets, etc.; and the English are VERY fond of tracing the pedigrees of their = pipework back into the mists of the 16th century.   In our land of abundance, with Alan Laufman's barn filled to overflowing = with worthy organs of every description and date, it probably would never be = NECESSARY to re-configure such an important instrument as the Appleton, and the few = others like it ... Tannenberg, etc. ... but an argument COULD be made for doing = it if the continued use/survival of a particular instrument depended on it. And = even the august OHS guidelines make SOME allowance for that, in the case of short-compass pedals.   So ... we will continue to look, for anything from a restorable Hook or = Johnson to a good Skinner, Kimball, Austin, etc. from the teens.   Cheers,   Bud

They look similar = to >the unshielded ones, but you won't get incoming radio signals.<snip>   The low impedence output from the power amplifier to the loudspeaker is usually NOT the source of this problem, nor does anyone make "shielded speaker cable". The radio signal is being picked up elsewhere. This is a common problem that can usually be solved in a short period of time by a competent electronics tech. Causes vary, sometimes even a cracked/cold solder joint will provide a "diode" surface in which the RF signal can rectify. Usually, an application of ferrite beads in the offending circuitry will provided enough shunt inductance to swamp the RF signal and end the problem.   DeserTBoB  
(back) Subject: Re: Need help with an e-organ problem From: "Bob Elms" <elmsr@albanyis.com.au> Date: Mon, 26 Jun 2000 08:50:48 +0800   Shielded cable will be no good on speaker leads. The capacitance between = wire and shield will shunt off some high frequencies. In addition if the = voltage on the cable rises high enough during peaks in sound you may have arc across = to the shield. The likelhood of this depends largely on the impedance of the speaker system and the level of output. If your speaker leads are picking up the signal you need to loop them = several times through a ferrite ring. It is however more likely that there is rectification somewhere inside the amplifier and chasing that is a job for = an electronics man.   As an amateur radio operator I have struck this problem of RF interference = in audio amplifiers before, but not for some years.

I would imagine that the emissions from the poh-leece radio are within legal parameters, so there's not much you can do with them.

And just WHERE do you expect to find "shielded" cable for low impedence speaker lines, anyway? At those impedences, it's a non-issue, unless something's REALLY malfunctioning!   DeserTBoB

Never Never Never Ever used shielded cable for Speakers..... No good will ever come of it. The Impedance is soooooo low, and the level soooooo High, there is no = chance of interference. I have worked in Radio Stations, and Recording Studios where we run = hundreds of feet of line level (+4db balanced) and never have a problem. Speaker level in many times higher then that. Better have someone look at your amplifier!   Good Luck Cory
