Organs in danger / Re: Free Complete Dismantled Organ
« Last post by Broadscot on September 10, 2019, 02:03:10 PM »
Is the Machie Acadady organ still available?  I used to live in Stonehaven - I owned the old Alexandra Hotel. At that time, there was a strange 3 manual organ in the Academy which only had one stop on each manual!!  It was not fully working.  I understand from Alan Buchan that there is an Ingram extension organ also - is this the one you have?  I am wathching the restoraion on the Ingram theatre organ in Corstorphine which I owned for yours.  However, I have a wee church which looking for a small pipe organ.  Can you help - as always - they have no money!! (skint) All best - Charlie Davidson ( chasdavidson@hotmail.com)

Organs on eBay or for urgent sale / Re: Conacher on ebay

Thanks for correcting the location.  The ebay ad said location was Telford and the Menai Bridge instrument came up on NPOR (Telford Road) and has the same Swell stop list.

Ah!  I was thinking it might have been one of their Irish jobs and I was piqued that I didn't recognise it!

It's the old Union Free Church in Wellington.

I've played the Menai Bridge organ, and it is also worthy of preservation.

Restoring pipe organs / Re: Pedal Acoustic Bass 32

And so we rediscover the Compton Harmonics, remembering that there was no hard and fast rule for it's derivation but rather what worked best in the building. Even a Quintathon 16 duplexed at 12 4/5 can work in some acoustics.

Using the 6th and 8th partials is genius to create the 32. I always considered 2nd and 3rd partials to be a very muddy sound.
