The 16' flue was almost, without fail, a = Quintaton.   Swell divisions very, very seldom had 8' principals, and occasionally had = no 4' either, with a compromise spitzsomething, instead.   Choir organs seldom had principals at all, and positive divisions might = have had a spitzprincipal and maybe an octave, but most were usually with only = a 2' principal, and a lone secondary reed, but certainly no trumpet.   Again, I do agree with your concept of what is needed for an "all-purpose" =   instrument, but I think you give the American Classic formula more credit than is due.   Bruce Cornely ~ Cremona502@cs.com with the Baskerbeagles in the Beagle's Nest ~ ""Haruffaroo, Bohawow!"
