Schober Organ Notes No. 97
Disclaimer: We accept no responsibility for any unfavorable consequences
resulting from following our advice
I hope you are all well. My place in Vermont is still upside down and there
is still lots of work to do. This will be a rather short issue. Hopefully
one of our members will send me a little story about their life and how
they came to purchase a Schober. Or what is going on with their Schober.
Or what problems they are having with their Schober. Or all or a combination
of the above. Like the mini portraits we had in past issues.
A HINT FROM ALLAN KIISK
I did some work on the organ -- and almost like a miracle -- it came back
to good health again. I was ready to replace some electrolytic capacitos,
but after turning the organ on, leaving it on for a while, turning it off
again, and on again, the capacitors all came back to life. So the old organ
is functioning like it used to many years ago,.
You may pass this information on to others, that one should not get
panicky if after a long period of non-use, the organ does not function
properly. Turn it off again, a few minutes later turn it on again, leave
it on for a while, turn it off again. At that point, when you turn it on
again, things should be back to normal -- if the original problem was caused
by the electrolytic capacitors. I think the organ would be of good use
to a student who needs to practice playing with full AGO pedals and several
keyboards, with couplings and all, for becoming a church organist. I'll
look around our area for such a need.
TWO ITEMS FROM RICHARD McBETH
Enjoy the sounds of the "Mighty Mo", 4 manual 42 ranks, at www. theatrepipeorgans.com
The Miditzer Style 260SP combines two of Wurlitzer's largest 3-manual
instruments, the 3/15 style 260 and the 3/19 Balaban 4. The result is a
3/19 Miditzer with all the bells and whistles, from the diminutive 1' Fife
whistle to the great big 32' Diaphone 'whistle'.
Check out the 3/19 Wurlitzer now available on Virtualorgan.com
