(back) Subject: Consoles [on-topic] From: "Charlie Lester" <crl@137.com> Date: Wed, 20 Apr 2005 10:22:04 -0700   I agree with Sebastian that horseshoe consoles are by far the most ergonomically correct and easiest to play on.   In particular, I really can't get the logic behind building a huge 4- or 5-manual console, especially with hundreds of stops, and employing drawknob stop control. Other than looking impressive, what else do large drawknob consoles offer?   Electric-action drawknobs are like vestigal organs (e.g., appendix) -- the remains of a once functioning organ but now having no real function other than retaining the imprint from its evolutionary past.   Probably the reason that horseshoe consoles have not caught on for church organs is because of their unseemly association with the vulgar theatre organ. We all know how uptight religious folks can be about things vulgar (except behind closed doors and out of the light of day, of course).   Personally, my favorite type of console is the domino-tablet. I don't so much like flip-tabs because the stop names can be hard to read. With dominos, the labels are clearly legible and the tablets are easily engaged and retired.   But the worst of all is the spring-loaded tablets or drawknobs that do not STAY PUT when you push them. This recent "innovation" (surely done in the name of economics rather than utility) is an absolute abomination of good console design. You have to wonder if the people who thought that ridiculous idea up have ever played an organ.   With stop controls that STAY PUT, you can with one hand engage and retire stops with two quick movements --- this IS particularly easy with drawknobs. "Plick-plack," there you go. Try doing that when all the stops -- whether on or off -- are in the same plane! (And what do you do when the light bulb inside the drawknob or tab burns out?! Play stop "potluck" ?!)   bla bla bla, just some post-dental-surgery ramblings...   Throb, throb...   ~ C

We all know how uptight religious folks can be >about things vulgar (except behind closed doors and out of the light >of day, of course).   Vulgar ...hmmmm... Yes I guess show music and ragtime , and others could be vulgar LOL, but just ask the late George Wright, or Tom Hazleton, it takes a good organist to play "dirty"!   But then hymns and Bach on classical, and music for fun on the theatre = organ!   Never mind... just playing the devil's advocate!     So there was this time that I was on an organ study tour in New England, with a bus load of staid classical organists, who, mostly when I uttered "Wurlitzer" looked at me as if I were a dirty diaper..... Our last stop was a big Aeolian in a private residence in the evening. Open console and the scholarly classics flowed!   But when the wine began to flow, there were suddenly tremulants going, Tibia imitations, ragtime on reedstops, Broadway's best, you name it!   What does it prove? That Theatre organs belong where alcohol is served? Possibly..... the Organ Stop Pizza in Mesa serves beer and not a bored face in the crowd!   I think it says basically that in this varied world of pipe organs it is OK that there is also a little organ corner reserved for strictly FUN!   just my 2c.   John V --

(back) Subject: RE: Flat pedal boards From: "TheShieling" <TheShieling@xtra.co.nz> Date: Thu, 21 Apr 2005 06:37:44 +1200   My organ teacher had a pedalboard in the new organ in his church in 1958 that was a little different from any other I know, combining the best of both worlds. Instead of being 8'6" radius and concavity, it was 13'6", providing just that bit of extra room for the heels. Everyone, used to = flat or r&c, found the pedalboard the best they'd ever played on. It was = retained at the rebuild a few years ago and I'd happily recommend that r&c = dimension to anyone.   Ross

Most people these days, including organists, have never ever seen a WurliTzer, much less try one, and wouldn't have a clue what the thing is that the organist sits at.   Ross
