Evans" <tlevans95@charter.net> Date: Sun, 23 Jan 2005 22:49:58 -0600   At the church I play, we have 20 ranks of pipes and 50 digital stops. = Only one real reed rank, but it all stays in tune really well. I have more individual flue pipes that need tweaking than the trumpet, which I think once in 3 years has needed a spot tuning. However, we only have a 3 = degree variance in the temperature from during the week to that on the weekends = for services.   Travis     ----- Original Message ----- From: <RonSeverin@aol.com> To: <pipechat@pipechat.org> Sent: Sunday, January 23, 2005 9:45 PM Subject: Re: Question re hybrid organs     > Dear Nick: > > The digital will stay in tune with pipes IF there is a sensor installed > with the pipes.

The instruments that we = play, not people's organs, who's organs they play with, date, marry, etc!

I do not wish to go online, since there is always alot of nasty = scuttlebutt about my undergraduate alma mater. I feel pipechat should be professional, = but I know 'tis not always the case. I've not heard anything via the guild (which calls Princeton home base).   Of course, I could go on and on about what happened there in my day :)
