(back) Subject: one organist's trash ... and start/run switches From: <quilisma@socal.rr.com> Date: Sun, 29 Dec 2002 18:12:15 -0800   Organ-shaped junque is in the eye of the beholder.   When I first came to St. Matthew's, a rather strange person of indeterminate gender (who was given to wearing sparkly electric blue spandex bicycle pants and flowing white blouses to Mass) presented me with a small Kawai spinet organ. In the course of five years, we have (1) put rollers on it and pushed it into the pizza parlor next door to the chapel on Westcliff so the choir could rehearse before Mass each Sunday, (2) had it standing by when the Hammond (and later the Allen) refused to play, and (3) most recently, pushed it out onto the bridge between the church and the admin building, which made a lovely outdoor choirloft for the first part of the dedication service.   When we were packing to move to the new church, the rector said, "don't you want to get rid of that thing?"   I said, "Are you MAD?" (grin)   Now the Kawai is in my office, because that's the only place the chanter and I have to rehearse before 11:00 Mass ... the "standby" organ in the loft is an equally sturdy Hammond spinet that has NEVER, EVER refused to play, as long as there was electricity in the building (grin).   In case nobody answered the question, late-model tonewheeler Hammonds DON'T have the start/run switches ... but they're still tonewheelers if you can hear the little beasties spinning (grin).   A friend of mine in the business is receiving an increasing number of frantic phone calls from funeral homes that have older Hammonds WITH the start/run switches ... younger organists haven't a CLUE how to turn them ON.   I can't resist pointing out that the Hammond is the ONLY electronic for which a literature HAS developed: gospel, jazz, rock, etc. ... and the purists are having NONE of the newer synthesized fake B-3 sounds, either (chuckle).   Cheers,   Bud

With its drawbars it can synthesize tones that a pipe organ can't. I'm not saying that it's superior to a pipe organ, but it can do some stuff a pipe organ can't. It is possible to be creative with it in unique ways. It has a unique character and a timbre of its own. In my opinion that makes it a musical instrument in its own right, in a way that many other electronic substitutes are not. Incidentally, one of the people I work with as a pipe organ builder plays the Hammond organ in a rock group as well as playing the classical organ. And he is a very fine musician.   John Speller
