I said relax! When you relax are your knees together? I don't think so! :) So much for short people and amputees. The knee remains on top of the foot. Squeezing knees together at the extreme ends of the pedalboard could cause a rupture with fat people or worse!!! :) The ankle is the pivot. I don't like to see organists indulge in toe stomping it's nasty for one thing and highly inaccurate as the heel is out of range to be useful. In that case I'd get myself an adjustable bench and lower the bench height. I hate people taking saws to benches. RAzzzzz, RAzzzz! You may have to sit farther forward on the bench, but leave some bench for me, I play next and I'm 6' 2" not 4' 11" :>) I hate hymn books or blocks of wood under the bench. I've always wondered why Ruffatti never provided Crystal Cathedral with an adjustable bench with a back rest. Was that an extra big expense? Instead you have to do the wood block thing. Adjustable benches were already invented, weren't they?   Ducking for safety,   Ron Severin

I'm actually 5'6" which is not very short but my legs are short. I kinda look like a chimp without my legs being bow. I DON'T flop all around on the bench and I do have good organ bench posture, alright san really straight back. I just have this tendency to make = circular movements with my lower legs as I "feel" my way around the pedalboard...IF and WHEN I have to do that. I have ankle motion and all that. And I don't spread my legs, on the organ bench at least, and I don't keep my knees tightly together. My greatest fear when on a high (for me) bench is = sliding off into the pedals which happened once when my choir in cleaning the furniture in the choir loft one Christmas over polished the organ bench = and I slid right into the pedals with the organ turned on; plopped there was = I, then attempting to crawl out as the pipes sang out in all their = cacophonic, or, if you prefer, Langlaisesque tone-cluster glory.

(back) Subject: Re: Adjustable benches for the height challenged From: <RonSeverin@aol.com> Date: Wed, 8 Aug 2001 15:30:07 EDT   Hi Robert and Mandy:   If I ever become ruler of the world all organs being built will come equiped with adjustable organ benches 22" to 26" high. All will be equiped with a back rest. Pipe or Digital organs are expensive anyway, what's a few extra bucks for something useful. I will also write a law that all existing organs must have adjustable benches with a back rest. :) Forget the crank too! Electric motors with a small computer so people can dial in the correct bench height and depth of the bench from the console. Cars have it why not make that a standard feature on benches too. We do spend a lot of our life every day on one.   A great idea,   Ron Severin   PS Tracker people will probably protest for a tracker action bench done the old way. The back rest could become a spanking tool Oh, but they would probably like that! :)

(back) Subject: Re: Funny, but true story! From: <RonSeverin@aol.com> Date: Wed, 8 Aug 2001 15:56:30 EDT   Hi List:   I once played a theatre orientated Conn organ for five years in an RC church which will remain nameless in Orange County. One of the bench legs (Right side) had been sawed off so it would fit a small shelf on a glue lam arch of this small church. The speakers were miles away in the back of the church. The console was crammed so close to the wall that bench adjustment was impossible as to depth. Now this organ was equipped with special effects. I had never touched then before, but during a particularly boring choir rehearsal, I thought to myself, self surely they have taken the time to disconnect all these special effects gadgets. I pressed a number of them in succession! :) oooooogah! door bell a two chime ding dong, police whistle. Well to say the least it got everybody's attention. We had a different organ within weeks. They were darned afraid I would hit one of those during a particularly boring sermon. So was the priest! :) TRUE STORY! They were afraid I would press the siren button which in my shock I never got to try! :)   Ron Severin   PS Was I bad or WHAT?
