It will be "bright" enough to function well in the Ensemble, but at the same time, work well for solo use. We did one that way for a 17 rank organ we did in a Catholic Church that seats 1200 and it's an amazingly versatile stop. Not too big, but certainly telling.   We just unpacked a similar stop from Giesecke in Germany today and it further reinforces that in a small instrument, that is the reed of choice. Tuning stability is much better than a fractional-length reed like a Krummhorn (read: Bees in the Bottles stop!) yet not is quite as large as a Trompette. The lift-up lids will allow the builder to control the amount of power, so that the stop doesn't get too big. And, they can be readily adjustable if the stop is discovered to be either too big or too small.   Good luck!   Faithfully, =20 Richard Schneider, PRES/CEO SCHNEIDER PIPE ORGANS, Inc.

From: <RonSeverin@aol.com> Date: Fri, 7 Dec 2001 01:55:41 EST   Dear Glenda   A nice large scale Basson-Hautbois 8' will keep everybody happy, It's like a small trumpet but will sound like an oboe and be very useful. Krumhorns are usually the third reed in an organ, after Oboe and Trumpet.   Ron Severin

If tuning slides are used > to tune the pipe, wouldn't they have a tendency to sharpen already > tuned pipes when you go on to the next note in order.   You are confusing "Tuning Slides", which are springy metal collars around the tops of the pipes which are knocked up and down to adjust the pitch of them, with "SLIDERS", which are the strips underneath the feet of the pipes which stop (hence how this name was derived!) the wind from flowing to the pipes in the first place.   If the mops are correctly used, they do not affect the tuning of the pipes. > If an 8' Gamba or other string were used as the tuning reference, > and all the mixture pipes tuned perfect, would there be a pressure drop > anyway when 8' 4' and other stops are added to the ensemble? > Would this cause some tuning variation with mixtures on the fly?   This should not happen provided that the wind system is set-up correctly and the windchests are constructed properly. There might be a *very* slight tendency to "rob", but it should not interfere with the proper speech of any given rank. Otherwise, no meaningful tuning could ever be done and the organ would have to be declared defective.   > How are atmospheric and temperature changes taken into account > while tuning a mixture? or other pipes for that matter? I guess I'm > asking, what is common practice for compensating these varibles > to achieve a stable tuning?   Atmosphere doesn't really affect pipe speech that much, as most of what goes on within a pipe is dictated by the wind coming from the foot of the pipe more than the column inside it.   Following temperature changes can be very difficult, which is why once the 4' Octave in the Great is set, it's time to put the tuning meter away, unless tuning from division-to-division which are far removed from each other. In that instance, we tune the remote division by setting the meter to the above-referenced 4' Octave by having it "listen" to each note, set the meter, and then set the corresponding tuning stop in whatever remote division we're tuning (hopefully, another 4' Principal of some kind). That way, we've compensated for the inevitable temperature drift that's taken place from whenever we set the reference stop until we transfer its tuning to another division in the organ.   A change as little as 4 degrees F will cause divisions to "celeste" with each other, as we discovered last week in the Big Mennonite Church job we're working on. Achieving uniform temperature stability is the first pre-requisite to good tuning practice. Otherwise, meaningful tuning cannot be done. > I have yet to experience a room with absolutely steady temperature > or pressure. Natural air flow, of a room, would be different in each > situation. Stacked pipe divisions would present even greater challenges.   That is correct. Normally, natural air currents should not present problem. In fact, in our situation, we're telling the church in Indiana that they need to *induce* air current, in order to obviate the effect of the cold air infiltration in Winter and hot air infiltration in Summer in the two chambers which are up underneath the roof in outside corner chambers. They're supposed to be installing circulation fans which are to draw air from in the church through the chambers and keep it circulating in order to stabilize the temperature.   > Would the pipes at the top of the stack be tuned first or last? In the > morning temperatures have a tendency to rise, in the PM fall.   Not in a properly climate-controlled building. Moreover, flue pipes tend to "follow" the temperature. The same problems exist when a church wants to keep the temperature of a Sanctuary low (or high during the summer in the case of Air Conditioning) during the week and then return it to a different temperature for worship times. Provided the reeds, which do not follow temperature changes as readily, are tuned at the temperature of the use with the flue pipes, then there should be little problems with tuning stability. > With stable flues, only reeds will require most of the attention on a = tuning > visit. If flues are unstable, drafts need to be taken into account. I = suppose > some instruments receive a better tuning in the AM and others in the PM.   This might have to do more with effects of "hot spots" created by the Sun beating through windows or on roofs than simply ambient temperatures alone.   > Wind leaks could also figure in especially if they are pretty hidden.   Provided the wind leak is constant, it should not matter, except if it's later repairs and the windpressure is changed as a result. A good tuner knows what pressures the organ should be set at (they should be clearly marked on all Reservoirs and a "test port" installed in order to easily verify them!) and if things are wildly amiss, knows to check windpressures before anything else.   Who knows if the Janitor got a wild hair and decided to store all of the old Hymnals on top of the Static Reservoir down in the Blower Room because it was a convenient, little-accessed spot. I've seen it happen!   Faithfully, Richard Schneider, PRES/CEO SCHNEIDER PIPE ORGANS, Inc. Pipe Organ Builders 41-43 Johnston St./P.O.
