(back) Subject: Re: Trends in color and finish of pipes From: <TubaMagna@aol.com> Date: Wed, 13 Mar 2002 23:07:38 EST   Dear PipeChatters:   I have always thought that gold paint on organ pipes was an abomination. = It makes the instrument take on the cheesey appearance of a radiator in rural =   funeral home, particularly since it isn't real gold, and doesn't come = CLOSE to the appearance. Gold LEAF on facade pipes, especially against a French-polished mahogany neoclassical case, make for a different story.   One of the nicest aesthetics remains the old, dull grey zinc basses of a Skinner juxtaposed with the beautifully carved neo-Gothic cases of Ralph Adams Cram or Betram Grosvenor Goodhue. No embellishment to the pipes whatsoever.   Although I have never stenciled pipes, I have enameled tuning sleeves in various jewel tones to match those found in a stained glass window. I did =   this in a small extension organ, completely unenclosed, for a Lutheran Church, and the hints of color topping the open ranks looks wonderful. = The pipework is spotted metal, and the entire colorful display is flanked by = twin flats of highly burnished zinc (when done properly it takes on the = appearance of polished tin), framed by a mahogany case.   Spray paint will always look like spray paint, unfortunately.   I DID once see a rather beautiful and creative treatment of a wooden = Subbass -- it was stained a subtle, deep olive green, and looked wonderful. The Dobson firm, known for their exceptional visual designs, has many painted Subbass ranks to their credit, the most memorable ones being in a deep cabernet/brick color, if memory serves correctly.   Sebastian Matthaus Gluck New York City
