Pianos lack stops so need extra keys to provide a slightly enhanced range of pitches.

The reason there are less keys on the pipe organ con- sole is, there are ranks that go above & below, & in that way, it is about the same # of keys on the Piano ( In theory!) (IE 61 on Organ & 88 on Piano!) Also. you have a Pedal keyboard!   Bud, Congrats on your Church finally aqquiring a Pipe Organ! Now if I didn't live so far away ( IE Poughkeepsie,NY) I would cerntinly help!   Thank's,Stu Ballinger

Today I *finally* got excited (grin).   I got to spend about an hour in quiet with the organ before they began the removal this morning, so I could REALLY tell what was what ... every other time I'd been there, workmen had been banging around finishing gutting the church.   There ARE a couple of odd things ... nothing unfixable ... it sounds like at some point the 8 principal and 4 octave in the Great were switched ... the 4 octave is MUCH wider and "hootier" than the 8 principal; ditto the 8 and 4 flutes in the Swell. If that IS the case, simple enough ... switch 'em back (grin).   After they removed the gold "barbeque grill" screen in front of the chamber (I mean ... pu-LEEZE ... gold-spray-painted metal diamond mesh for a chamber screen in NEWPORT BEACH??!! what WERE they thinking?), I could see that the shutters are on individual pneumatics, and not all of them were opening, so that accounts for the enclosed Great flute being SO much softer than the exposed pipework. It's a Hohl Flute; it SHOULD be able to hohl its own (ducking).   They got the exposed Great pipes and the Pedal pipes out before I got so cold and so tired I had to come home ... I was sitting there shivering, wrapping in a MOVER'S blanket (grin); Burgie finally dragged me out of there. The rose window is out; they didn't cover it like they said they would, and St. James is right on the water, so the church was like a wind tunnel. The pipe chamber is sheltered; the console is draped in plastic; I hope we don't have another storm this weekend.   From what I could see, the wood and the workmanship is excellent ... no visible water damage (I wasn't able to climb into the chamber itself, but Frank said he didn't see any), BIG scales (grin). It *will* require a complete releathering, but we already budgeted for that.   Frank Kieran is nothing if not painstaking and methodical ... everything was cleaned as it came out, diagrammed AND video-taped, screw lengths marked, pipes wrapped and cushioned, etc. etc. etc.   THEN, in an AMAZING phone call from the Rector tonight, I was told to prepare a budget for what *I* want done in the way of improvements and additions. Heavenly Sunshine! (grin). I'll be good ... all I want is an Oboe and a celeste rank in the Swell, a Clarinet and maybe the Unda maris rank in the Great, and the 16' octave of the Trompette in the Pedal.   To be continued ...   Cheers,   Bud
