Electronic Organs / Re: Ahlborn Owners Group
« Last post by therepetiteur on Today at 11:06:20 AM »

Facebook is indeed searchable.  There is a search bar on the site.  We made around 10-15 members in about one/two days.

Regarding battery leakage, this is something which you can try to repair by replacing the battery, cleaning up any acid leakage from the board and then perhaps soldering wires onto the board where the old battery used to be so that the new battery can sit somewhere off the board.  Either that or encapsulate the battery in some sort of casing!

Cheers for now

I'm not greatly active on facebook. Perhaps you might encourage some of them to post here? Facebook isn't searchable so it's not really helpful in terms of helping people solve any problems.

I have a number of their extension units which are truly excellent and inspiring in sound. But a few have been damaged by battery chemical attack on the board. Are these boards at all repairable if this has happened?

Best wishes

I hope and pray that he does go - for the good of the parish.  I met one lady from the parish - a warden, I think, who came to a Mass at our church when the Bishop of Ebbsfleet was celebrating.  She spent a long time talking to him privately about the situation.  I don't know the outcome.  The little organ there would be far better that the jukebox they've installed - and it could, perhaps be made back into a two-manual if space allows.

This little organ is one of several on Ebay at the moment.  I hope it finds a good home.

... yes, wonderful are the ways of 'CofE': I was reckoned to be 'time-expired' so put out to grass - and someone three years older - who'd never run a Parish - put in! But, older and inexperienced though he was, he held good 'liberal' views about everything; I understand he's now got the message that it's not going well, and is looking to move...
p.s. The vendor of the Organ in question, has now added some information: it is in NPOR (Thrapston) and seems to be by Claypole. He also now gives the dimensions in those new-fangle measurements I can't fathom, and worries whether what must be one side of the Pedal pipes can be removed from the wall, the corresponding ones being attached to the back of the case.

I think many people wish you WERE still there, Fr Otto.  The organ in your former church is no longer used and they have replaced it with a music box.  I enquired about the post some months ago and was told that they don't want an organist.  I understand that the Anglo-Catholic tradition is also under attack.

Very sad.

...This number: 182895433321... should lead to the above. I've contacted the vendor, trying to persuade him to give a bit more detail (I think picture 1 has the/a maker's name visible but not readable just below the console lamp; the front pipes look like pretty good spotted metal; where exactly it is might help anyone interested) but, I suppose he's got other things to do. Couldn't find it in NPOR, so at a loss but stops appear to be:
Swell:  Horn 8', Gemshorn 4', Lieblich Gedacht 8', and Viole de Gamba 8'
Great: Flauto Traverso 8', Dulciana 8', Rohrflote 8', Open Diapason (those spotted metal pipes) 8'
Pedal: Bourdon 16'
Couplers: Sw. to Gt., Sw. to Ped., and Gt. to Ped..
If I were still in my North Devon Cure, I'd probably be off there with a Luton-top, and one or two chaps, to dismantle it and bring it down!
p.s. ...all that 8-foot work, and just the one 4-foot, would bring on a seizure today - no squeaky stuff at all!

Yet, on the Theatre/Cinema Organ sites, it's claimed that there is a stirring of interest among younsters who've never seen or heard of such things before and are intrigued by it all - even down to the popular music of the pre-War era: perhaps this could be a way of luring them back! ...Might work better than by trying to bring the popular music of today (usually = what was popular in the Vicar/Minister's day!) into Church.
