I can design my own organ and am now in the process of selecting the pistons which will appear on it. The organ has three manuals, Swell, Great and Choir, and I can have any possible piston I want on it. There is enough room on the manual piston-boards for more than enough = pistons.   What arrangements of pistons would you recommend?   What are some that you would do without.?   What are your most-used pistons?   Paul.   Hugh wrote: >For those of you that have these bells and whistles on your console or >have played one that does, where from your experience is the best >location for them?

First, do any of you play them or familiar with them? The reason I ask is because this new piece I'm trying to play requires two notes to be played at the same time on the foot pedals, and the BC only allows for one to be played at a time.

(back) Subject: RE: correct location for thumb pistons From: "Emmons, Paul" <pemmons@wcupa.edu> Date: Fri, 12 Apr 2002 11:39:15 -0400   All the manual-to-pedal couplers should have thumb and toe reversibles. Having played organs in which the "tirasses" are all on the right side vs. divided on both sides of the swell pedals, I think I prefer the latter: choir-to-great toe stud on the left. It is less confusing when theses aren't all in a row/clump. I also think it's helpful if these are a different shape: levers that push down rather than buttons that push in.   I have always appreciated having pedal combination toe studs duplicated by pistons on the left under the choir manual.   A swell-to-great reversible piston, maybe toe stud, too, is very useful.   Of those provided that I have never seen much use for: reversibles for 32' stops (notwithstanding my message yesterday celebrating their use in psalm accompaniment). I suppose they are nice if you have the money and space = for them, but if not, they would be my first candidates to do without (the reversibles-- definitely not the stops :-)      
(back) Subject: RE: correct location for next/previous thumb pistons From: "Emmons, Paul" <pemmons@wcupa.edu> Date: Fri, 12 Apr 2002 11:47:22 -0400   Ah, yes, one more suggestion. A hair-trigger touch on toe studs is not = only unnecessary but dangerous. There's no embarrassment quite like the total ruin of a quiet movement by accidentally brushing your foot against a general piston set for ff.      
(back) Subject: RE: correct location for thumb pistons From: "Emmons, Paul" <pemmons@wcupa.edu> Date: Fri, 12 Apr 2002 12:29:49 -0400   A few minutes ago I wrote of the tirasses:   > I also think it's helpful if these are a different shape: levers that = push down rather than buttons that push in.   Perhaps it is just as well if they are constructed like the other toe = studs, provided that they are very convenient to reach-- on the bottom row next = to the swell shoes. They should be either visible and easily reached, or so constructed that one will not mistake them for something else. It is, to me, far more important that the Great-to-Pedal and Swell-to-pedal reversibles, especially, should be the easiest to locate, than for such positions to be occupied by two random pedal combinations. To be able to press these two reversibles quickly and reliably is such a delight = compared with having to fish for them with both eyes and feet.   At Saint Thomas, NYC there is a switch to the right of the couplers that totally exchanges the choir and great manuals. This rocker is not itself affected by the combination action. The pistons underneath these manuals are exchanged, too. If such a feature is provided, for it to affect the divisional pistons as well is the only way to go. Although it is a luxury, we might start to see it more often with electric consoles today, because solid state technology makes it easier to do than formerly. It would definitely be on my dream list provided that the implementation is thoroughgoing; however, if it affects only the manuals per se without carrying the pistons along with it, the feature is just about useless. If done, of course the configuration of the reversibles and manual = divisionals of great and choir must be identical: same number and placement of divisionals, and corresponding reversibles also in the same position.

When completed, our organ will = be a three-manual of approximately 43 stops over three manuals and pedals.   Our services are somewhat unusual (these days, anyway) in that they = contain on average 15-20 musical items ... maybe 1/3 of those change every Sunday. In addition, I have two separate and discrete services with different music = and different congregations.   So I care more about having lots of generals, and less about having lots = of memories.   The console layout isn't firmed up yet, but my initial request was for a = layout something like this:   (under Swell manual)   Gen. 1-2-3-4 Sw. 1-2-3-4-5-6-7-8 Sw/Ped Gen. 5-6-7-8   (under Great manual)   Gen. 9-10-11-12 Sw/Gt Ch/Gt Gt. 1-2-3-4-5-6-7-8 Gt/Ped Gen. = 13-14-15-16   (under Choir manual)   Set Gen. 17-18-19-20 Sw/Ch Ch. 1-2-3-4-5-6-7-8 Ch/Ped Gen. = 21-22-23-24 Cancel   (to the left of the swell shoes, bottom to top)   Gen. 1-2-3-4-5-6 Gen. 7-8-9-10-11-12 Gen. 13-14-15-16-17-18   (to the right of the swell shoes, bottom to top)   Ped. 1-2-3-4-5-6-7-8 Gt/Ped Sw/Ped Ch/Ped Sw/Gt Ch/Gt Sw/Ch 32 Bourdon (BIG space) 32 Bassoon (BIG space) Tutti I Tutti II   The Pedal pistons will be hard to reach, but I plan to have Ped On Sw = Pistons, Ped On Gt Pistons, Ped On Ch Pistons in the key-cheeks, like old Skinners used = to. Unfortunately, there isn't room for Pedal thumb pistons.   I've never played an organ with a "Next" piston, so I have no idea where = it should go ... I presume it should be someplace central, like up high next to the = swell shoes on the right, and/or somewhere in the middle of the Great pistons.   Cheers,   Bud   "Paul R.
