  • A really small Schlicker organ

    At a university near me is a really small Schlicker organ. I thought it was awesome! The 16' stop had really nice bass and the keyboard was high quality. Neat instrument.

    RJ,

    Thank you for sharing this organ with us. I am a bit confused, though. It appears the organ has only three ranks, and those ranks are mounted on chests behind the music rack. Now my confusion--why the Swell pedal? Are there pipes in the two taller towers in front of the windows?

      Good question! I have no idea what the pedal is for. There are pipes behind the two taller tower things but they look like the 16' bourdon pipes—it's just a one sided front cover you see in the photos.

      Next time I'm able I'll check to see what the pedal does.

        The "cover" is actually a common pipe wall shared by the bottom octave of the Pedal 16', with adjacent pipes also sharing side walls. It was a cost-saving technique that is extremely common in these smaller Schlicker unit organs.

        The Swell pedal is either wired as a Crescendo, or as a dummy expression pedal for practice purposes.
