  • Window Shopping for a Unit Orchestra

    I have been lately window shopping for a unit orchestra to have. My Criteria is slightly complex.

    1. 2M - 3M
    2. 8 - 15 Ranks

    Ok, Im been eyeing the smaller 3Rank Pipe organs but i am interested in a small tonal pallet that offers wide options. I am not ready to purchase one but i have looking around and window shopping and looking for a Style that would be able to put on a trailer and move about or installed in a nice room.

    Nice 3/8 Wurli 'Granada' type on ebay over here.... probably too far away though!

    It's not what you play. It's not how you play. It's the fact that you're playing that counts.

    Most theatre organist consider the Wurlitzer Style D (or its later successor, the 165) to be one of the best balanced of the small theatre pipe organs which had these ranks: tibia, open diapason, concert flute, salicional, vox humana, and trumpet. That forms the basic core for a decent small theatre organ.

      Ok, hmm so i looked it up and the stop list will have to be re worked, if you wanted to add just one rank or unit to it what would it be.

    Maybe a salicional celeste rank, for just one, but it would be nice to add clarinet, orchestral oboe, and post horn.
