Do you actually have an EMG floor model 78 gramophone, - they were = the >Rolls-Royce of gramophones of my youth!   No, I don't know the make, except that it was definitely made in 1923 and has an oak case. It's a most unusual machine in that the horn goes down to floor level and then fold back up again, instead of having the usual = record storage space at the bottom. The thing cost me just NZ$200 (half that, in your money) as it was cluttering up a very small shop selling 2nd-hand high-quality hi-fi gear. I keep about eight different varieties of needles for the thing - - for loud records - for soft records - for scratched records - for mint ones - longplaying (steel, but last for about 30 records) and so on. All of these things are still readily available.   Do you folk overseas generally do as we do here, and make a distinction between phongraph and gramophone? Here, a phonograph is generally the term used for a clockwork 78 player, while gramophone is generally the term reserved for something where the turntable runs by electrics. It's a = "nice" and useful distinction, I feel.   I have two other old phonographs. One is a black portable HMV from c1940, not in good nick. The other is also a portable machine, a Decca from 1912, with a spun-aluminium reflector that stands vertically, in perfect order. The big floor model machine, though, way surpasses the others in terms of output and sheer tone, with its astonishing ability to get rid of almost = all surface noise compared with other players. The main problem, like all clockwork players, is the lack of bass.   Ross

A player piano works from the console similarly mounted stage right. single chamber installation. The organ is the original Ben Hall "little mother" Wurlitzer, expanded to 11 ranks, that used to be in Ben Hall's apartment and subsequently in the Carnegie Cinema in NYCity.   See our website for more details http://www.nytos.org/   Incidentally within an hour from there we have 3 more Theater organs.

I have the Six Preludes: There's not much registration information, though there is this note on the first page: "Registration: mostly Foundation stops (for the 6 Preludes); no Vox = Humana whatsoever; no research for 'picturesque color'--the real 'organ' tone throughout."   Thee six are brief; would make, I think, excellent short preludes to the service.     Randy Runyon Music Director Zion Lutheran Church Hamilton, Ohio runyonr@muohio.edu

Thus, the literature = speaks > of stopped pipes emphasizing odd partials. > > Dick       I would like to add some observations on this topic. When useing the term "harmonic" and starting with the basic pitch as number 1, then all of the upper harmonics have a specific relationship to number one that makes the whole harmonic series into a wonderful piece of logic. Using this numbering system shows some interesting things: 1. The number of harmonics in each octave - 1 in the first, 2 in the second, four in the third, 8 in the fourth, 16 in the fifth, etc. 2. As has been pointed out, the octaves are all multiples of number 1. If number 1 is a C, 2 is a C, 4 is a C, etc. Also this progression continues with other pitches. If number 1 is a C, harmonic 3 is a G, harmonic 6 is a G, 12 is a G, etc. 3. This also shows the frequency ratios between harmonics. 2 is = vibrating twice as fast as one, 4 is vibrating twice as fast as 2, etc. I believe the ratios also hold true for all other harmonics in the particular series. Harmonic 5 would have a ratio of 5:4 compared to harmonic number 4, etc. 4. It also helps as a way to remember the harmonics. No. 7 is three = octaves and a 7th above number 1 No. 9 is three octaves and a 9th above No. 1. 5. This also provides a neat way to explain why the numbers are used for mutations. Perhaps all of you know this, but in case some have not seen it, here is how it works. Start with the fraction 2 2/3. Convert it to 8/3. (2x3=3D6+2=3D 8) The 2 2/3 is harmonic number 3 in an 8' series. 1 3/5 converts to 8/5. The 1 3/5 is harmonic number 5 of an 8' series. 1 1/7 converts to 8/7. 1 and 1/7 is harmonic 7 of an 8' series. 1 1/3 converts to 4/3. 1 1/3 is harmonic number 3 of a 4' = series Want to know what the number would be for a mutation playing harmonic 7 of a 32' series? 32 divided by 7 is 4 4/7. Maybe a useless bit of trivia but perhaps some will enjoy it.   None of the five items listed above works if you use the term "overtones" and start with the second harmonic as overtone number 1.   Del W.
