(back) Subject: RE: Wind pressure From: "Emmons, Paul" <pemmons@wcupa.edu> Date: Wed, 14 Aug 2002 14:19:18 -0400   >what instrument measures the air pressure?   The measuring instrument is a manometer, which contains water in a = u-shaped tube. Connect one end to the wind supply, leave the other open to the atmosphere, and note the difference in water levels in the two sides.   For many people, who apparently have as little concept of a "pound per square inch" as they have of how organs work, a figure will go into the = ear as "three-inch pressure" and automatically come out of the mouth as = "three pounds per square inch". There is a huge difference.   An atmosphere of air pressure is approx. 14-15 pounds per square inch. = When this pressure pushes against water, it can raise it thirty-some FEET into = a vacuum-- wherefrom we can see that even an organ on unusually high = pressure is well under one pound per square inch except, perhaps, for a tuba or = state trumpet.      
(back) Subject: RE: Wind pressure From: "Emmons, Paul" <pemmons@wcupa.edu> Date: Wed, 14 Aug 2002 14:25:23 -0400   Some blowers can produce more than one pressure, right?   But even then, further variety of pressures is obtained through = reservoirs.   How does this occur? I would suppose that eventually the only way you can get a lower pressure of air than the blower produces is for the reservoir to close off the supply when it is full. Is this = how it's done?

(back) Subject: Re: Last Sunday From: <RonSeverin@aol.com> Date: Wed, 14 Aug 2002 15:27:36 EDT   Dear Bruce:   From what you are telling me, either one or both organ AMPS are too loud. The usual method to get a balance is to A B compare the Great Principal 8' with the Gt. Flute 8'. They should be the same relative power or volume. You do the balancing with the swell shoes wide open. Try it and if still too loud soften both Amp volume controls again. Another thing these older CMOS organs have a tendency to CLIP if too many stops are drawn at once. Full great for instance: only Principals 8',4',2 2/3', 2' Mixture Full swell: principal 4' Mixture and all reeds Full pedal: take off the soft stops, same on the manuals. These confuse and cause computer over ride causing the CLIPPING. Try it my way and you'll see a big difference. Just think of soft stops as wind robbers, as in the Baroque era, and that should make the sound big but with clarity. I knew what the quirks were early on and adjusted accordingly. Do you have alterable voices and add on cards and a card reader? If you do there should be a drawer full of them on the right under the keyboards, a slot to insert them and a knob to direct where you want the sound. Usually there were 4 alterables, two on swell and two on Great. I'll tell you the tricks later. Alterables will remain silent unless you program them. the cards have arrows on them. line them up with the slot dial the alterable you want them on, and insert til they stop inward travel. The alterable will give you an entirely new stop of different character to use. their Krumhorns are terrific, cornettes too. put the card in arrow first.   Ron  
(back) Subject: RE: My little home practice organ From: "COLASACCO, ROBERT" <RCOLASACCO@popcouncil.org> Date: Wed, 14 Aug 2002 15:27:52 -0400   Unfortunately one of the right questions for a purchaser is "How much?" = and I had never got a straight answer, if any, from anyone other than the person who sold me the Johannus. And that was one of the most important parts of the "test" for him. When I asked how much, he told without hesitation or trying to get out of it or any other kind of nonsense and trickery that Allen and Rodgers gave me. Rodgers wouldn't even talk to me after I asked that question. He was VERY condescending and told me = obviously I wasn't really interested. Imagine? I couldn't be more interested in what has become the joy of my life...and I mean that. So when a person asks, = "How much" don't jig around if you can't give an exact price give an estimate = and a range.

Various pressures are tapped at different locations, depending upon the number of impellers.   P.S. - I think I said Anemomenter instead of Manometer in my last message.
