Combined organ & Harmonium
« on: January 05, 2011, 10:29:41 PM »
Hi

A relatively recent example of this rare breed of instruments - http://www.harmoniumnet.nl/Lenter-Orgelharmonium.html

I know of around half-a-dozen others, but have only seen an amateur-built (and currently unplayable) example in the reed organ museum at Saltaire.

The biggest problem that I can see is the shift of pitch of the pipes with temperature changes (electronic/pipe hybrids suffer from the same problem).  The sound clip mentioned on the web page is also worth listening to.  I think the CD is one for my "wish list!".  Every Blessing

Tony
