  • Hope to get a close look at a Schantz

    In June I plan on attending our denominational general assembly at a church in TN which has what looks like a fantastic Schantz. Hopefully I can arrange a tour of it. I need to find my digital camera in the mean time so that I can get some pics and hopefully a video.

    Didn't get a chance to play it but heard a little bit. Unfortunately the "Happy, Clappy Praise Band" was the focus and they let the multi-thousand horse power, million dollar instrument play along as long as the organists knew their place. Every now and then one would get glimpses of the potential though. Beautiful voicing from what I was able to hear.

    Has Great, Choir, Swell, Fanfare, Antiphonal I, Antiphonal II, and of course pedal. Choir, Swell and Fanfare are under expression. There were only about three voices on each antiphonal division and the 8's must have been stopped as the longest pipes were about 4' in length. I was able to feel the 32 Bourdon at a couple of points. There are some digital ranks (I don't know which but would expect the 32' ranks are probably among them).

    Here is a quick look at the console. In the next post I will post pics of the draw knobs by division and try to read them well enough to construct a disposition.

        These videos are hard to navigate (lots of dead space at the beginnings and have to wait for loading to move about) but some bits can be heard here...

        Third video: around 26 min
        Seventh video: around 23 min and especially 26 min

        There are probably a few more nuggets but it is tough mining.:)

          Thank you so much for sharing these photos. It is so unfortunate you weren't able to hear the instrument in all it's glory, though.
