    Thanks for sharing! Looks like a lot packed in there. Also looks like large scales for the room. Know what the wind pressure is? How's it sound?

    Does that mean a brighter sound, or less durable material? Is your reference to the diapason or the whole organ? I know I like more lead in the 8's (I think). Would enjoy a building lesson here. []

    Zinc is often used as a cost-cutting measure, especially for basses. It can be difficult to voice well.




    I suppose it is not surprising to see so much zincsince the smaller pipes are not yet installed in these photos.

    a 16' pedal diapason is the rank I would MOST wish I could have on my home organ. It is technically possible space wise but then I'd have no view out my front windows. LOL maybe if they could make them of glass? or clear PVC? hmmmm

    I agree NYC; if there was one stop I could add to my residence organ it would be a 16-foot principal or violone. All 32 pipes would really be nice!

    Maybe Im missing somthing but that 16' dosen't look all that big. Thanks for the pics! It's always interesting to see how organs are set up.

    Try getting into your average living room and then see how big it actually is.
