  • decorative organ pipes

    Do you know where I could find organ pipes to put on top of an electronic organ? I don't mean working pipes, I mean decorative pipes...maybe something like the CONN electronic organ pipes (by the way, how do those work, anyhow)?

    Are those the decorative pipes atop a small speaker cabinet? I think they actually function as tuned resonance modifiers to smooth out the frequency response of the box.</P>


    I would think that non-functional decorative pipes could be made from a number of materials: aluminum tubing; PVC pipe; cardboard tubes; they might have to be painted, of course, but many organs have painted pipes. Because they would not be expected to speak, the mouth areas would not be too difficult to simulate (basically a hole in the pipe, maybe with ears and a bridge).</P>

        Better yet, why not drop a couple million, and buy a real pipe organ[;)]. If you really want pipes you could ask a local organ builder to fab up some pipes just for display purposes, but that is probably more money than you really want to spend for just a little display.

          I may be wrong when I say this, but I'm relatively sure the Conn pipe speakers actually send the sound through the pipe tubes. This is a very clever way to send the sound of the organ into the room, and I've heard that they work really well, although I have not heard them personally.</p>

          I'd agree with everyone else on here. If you want something cheap, get some PVC pipes, paint them silver or gold (or green... ?) and glue them to a black box and you're all set.</p>

          Otherwise, put up an ad on the Church Organ Trader for some 4' principal pipes. Once you've found them, you can paint them a nice shiny silver and you're all set. Just put together a basic wooden stand, paint it black, and viola, decorative pipes. Pipes come up on ebay every so often, you may try that as well.</p>

          Cheers!</p>
