  • My New Drawknob Replacement Discs

    After a year of fooling around with stop names written on masking tape I finally bit the bullet and purchased all the replacments from HESCO. I still have a Vox to add to the Choir and a Mixture to bring to the pedal but I'm about to run out of knobs!! Or wait, maybe I'm really about to run out of a place to add chest. (the latter is more the truth)

      That's a pretty nice setup you have there. The drawknobs look great! This is a home organ?







      Just out of curiosity ... why the great 2 great sub coupler instead of a swell to great? That would give access to the other mutations and the trompette. (and really, I'm just curious. I'm not trying to critique).

        Hmm, I don't see two Great subcouplers. I see a sub, a super, and a unison off - all normal. I have a feeling his Swell to Great is on the coupler rail (right where it should be)!




        The only critique I have is that the Pedal Lieblich Gedeckt 16' is out of place and should be placed next to the Bourdon 16'.




        Also Don, didn't we talk you out of [:D] puttinga mixture in your Pedal?




        It's late and I don't want to look through all the old posts right at the moment. But I seem to recall talking about that some time ago... (?).

          Hi Bombarde32.....
          The drawknobs are just the sub/super couplers. All the Swell to Great and Choir to Great are the on coupler rail on top of the Swell manual at 16, 8 and 4 foot.
          And yes this is the organ in my home.

            Soubasse32 you are absolutely correct!! The Lieblich is out of place.[:$] I've been too lazy to unsolder and move the wire around in the console! That would be a good weekend project.
            I remember the conversation we had about the pedal mixture. I can't remember how we left it though. I'll have to go back and re-read as well. Since I already have the coral bass and two reeds in pedal the only other thing that made sense to me was a pedal mixture.

                Hmmmmm. will 16' opens weather the winter months outside on the patio???[;)] When we bought this house David told me I could install however much organ would fit in the finished basement but that was it. I think I've got enough room to put in the new Vox chest and then it's all over. No more room....no more organ.[:'(]
                I keep thinking what it's going to be like to move all this "stuff" in a few years when we are tired of Atlanta. I'm not sure if I gave it away anyone would take me up on it. Just kidding...I'll have to move the organ whenever moving time rolls around.

                  Why not have a Resultant? If your Lieblich is not too small-scaled (and thus 'quinty') you can wire it to speak at 10 2/3' - it should make a nice effect, with minimal resources (no new pipes).




                  Much prettier than a Pedal mixture! [:)]

                    Greetings....

                    Where is the console located in relation to the organ? Is it in the basement as well?

                      Yeah, the console is located in front of the organ all in the same room.

                        Don,




                        I really like those new stops and the selection. The chimes being available in the pedal division is a nice touch. Your hands can be busy playing and your feet can just chime in. I like that.




                        Looking at people's suggestions I thought of one or two, but I can play organs not create them so I'm way outta my league here. But I do have a question, how come someone suggested that you not have a mixture in the pedal division? How about a smaller Mixture II?




                        Just curious.

                          Hi ReedGuy......
                          I'm still pondering the possibilities of what to do in the pedal. I've always been a believer of the Pedal division with a "huge" presense. I just hate organs that in a full organ posture the pedal is NOT effective. I mean how in hell can you play Virgils' "Now Thank Thee" with a "can't hear" pedal?? I've got the big reed at 16, 8 and 4 foot, the octave and the big 16' flute. I just really think a mixture would round out the pedal division.
                          I'm certainly open for anyone input.

                            Hello,

                            Have you posted the complete spec for your organ on here yet? I can't seem to find it.

                              Hi Don,




                              I think I would give the Mixture a whirl. I definitely agree with you: you can't have a full organ and a weak pedal division. Another thought, I noticeda Bourdon 16 and a Lieblich 16. Any thought to adding a 16 stop from the Diapason family?




                              Cheers!
