    Another guy rented a storage room, found it had an electrical outlet, and disassembled, repaired, and repainted an old motorcycle there.

    MANY things are possible.
    The sub bass is actually a stop of it's own. Usually has some of the biggest reeds and makes the deepest (or close to the deepest) notes. Part of what makes the instrument have such a depth of sound. Those reeds are located in that box to the right (looking in the back) of the Vox Humana. Not all reed organs have one, but I am blessed to have one that does.

    This is true. But neither of those people were working in their mom's living room. XD

    Thank you. Mr. Milne says that sub-bass is often 13 notes linked to the lower keyboard notes by a movable lever that is pulled up to uncover the reeds in a... box in the back.
