(back) Subject: Thanks From: "Phil Stimmel" <pca@sover.net> Date: Thu, 10 Jun 2004 20:21:53 -0400   Thanks to all who have responded to my questions about James Jamison, = Estey trackers, etc. I've received many, many good suggestions, and wanted to = let you all that the website is coming along very well. The Opus list is up, and I'm adding links to it daily with stop lists, photos, articles, etc. = If anyone has historical materials about Estey organs, or those who worked for/with Estey, I'd love to have copies.   As you go through the site, be sure to click on photos, etc, as much materials is available as links. Also, please, if you see errors = (including typos) let me know and I'll get in there and fix them up. I'm not a web designer, just an organist with a passion.   Phil Stimmel www.esteyorgan.com

You do not say whether the power supplies were for the pipe section or the electronic. Pipe organ power supplies can go bad too but if any supply has had to be replaced three = times it indicates a real problem somewhere, not necessarily the fault of the organ.   As far as the trouble free pipe organ is concerned, there are plenty of those, but there are also very troublesome pipe organs too. Ciphers, dumb notes, etc. I knew a feller had a Jaguar car which kept him poor having it repaired. There are lemons in everything, but that does not condemn the whole product.
