  • OK I lied- Here is where I really will be practicing! :D

    Ok so I have been in contact with a few different churches.

    I did say I was going to be practicing at a local church with a Skinner organ... well..... it turns out that with my schedule I just couldnt balance it.

    So I was in contact with another church! Tuesdays for an hour I get to practice on this amazing organ!

    BUILT RIGHT here in Nebraska by the amazing Bedient organ company. The cathedral here in town owns 2 of their organs and they are incredible. Very baroque sounding.

    This one is in a Cavaille Coll reversed terraced console style!

    Bedient Pipe Organ Company (1998, Opus 59).

    2 manuals. 3 divisions. 28 stops. 24 registers. 58-note manuals. 32-note pedals.
    Slider chests. Mechanical key action.
    The organ is in a case at the front of the room.
    Traditional style console. Detached, reversed console (mechanical action). Drawknobs in horizontal rows on terraced/stepped jambs. Balanced swell shoes/pedals. Adjustable combination pistons. Crescendo Pedal. Reversible full organ/tutti thumb piston. Reversible full organ/tutti toe stud. Combination action thumb pistons. Combination action toe studs. Coupler reversible thumb pistons. Coupler reversible toe studs.

    Additional notes.
    -- Spec slightly different at console: Swell Cornet II is two separate ranks; Trumpet 4' added to Pedal. (Database Manager. 2009-08-29)

      Well I finally got to play the organ for the first time today!

      Literally blown away. First Bedient that I really got to get to sit and examine.

      No doubt about it- a real fine built instrument in every way. The console couldn't have felt more solid.

      The voices were romantic sounding. The bombarde, and trompettes were soaring, and booming, and the stopped flute voices were so nice!!

      Bedient gets 2 thumbs and a foot up for building this fine instrument.

      I have something to really look forward to each Tuesday afternoon!

      Horrible phone demo video coming soon. Next week I will bring my really nice digital video camera.

        Just noticed something. That stoplist above is incorrect!

        The 16' reed in the pedal is a Bombarde, not a Posaune, and a 4' trumpet is in the pedal as well.

        PS. The reeds on this organ are to die for!
