  • Posaune 16'

    added a 16' Posaune 12 note extention to the home pipe organ:



    We have the rank up and playing somewhat but having issues with pipe speech. Not sure of the pressure..we have it on 5 inches......might have to wind it off another chest at 6 inches to help out on that speech if we can't get it regulated at 5.

    recording of it at:

    Only the lowest 12 notes are Posaune...the remaining notes of the "stop" are the 8' OPen Diapason and a 8' Oboe which works pretty well actually to make a combined unit stop for notes 13 thru 32.

      Sounds as though you have the makings of a very nice reed! The pressure may be on the low side, but the stop sounds dirty. Polishing the tongues and shallots (and checking the weights) may go a long way toward correcting many of your speech issues.I would also advise getting a rack on those boots. Those pipes look Austin-esqueand very well built, but that ferel can only take so much stress before it will snap.</P>


      congratulations on your latest addition</P>

        thanks! Yes Trevor will get a rackboard built for that rank soon I hope! Thanks for the advice on the speech issues!!!!!!! They are Austin pipes from a church in Grand Rapids Michigan...was told they were voiced for 5 inches which is what they are playing at now..its somewhat possible run them on 6 inches should that be required but we are going to try and get them cleaned up and regulated first!

            I would agree that polishing the tongues AND shallots would be a good first step. I listened to the sound file of the test-playing and several of the pipes are slow to speak, and tone/loudness is a bit uneven (as you no doubt noticed!) I would check that the shallots are perfectly flat, and that there are not flat spots in the tongues (checked against a known flat surface), and that the shallots are on the voicer's mark. Also, it may be that the tuning scrolls may need some re-hab work as well, it was difficult to tell from the pictures.</p>
