    1. Welcome to the Mander Organ Builders Forum


      Updated 27th August 2020

      F H Browne & Sons ltd is delighted to announce that it has acquired the trading name and intellectual property rights of Mander Organs Ltd. From 1st October 2020 F H Browne (Organ Builders) Ltd will revert to trading under the name Mander Organ Builders for all current and future contracts.
      Both companies are based in South East England, and three of the current FHB employees (including myself) are former employees of Mander Organs, so there are immediate synergies.

      We are delighted to have made this transition and look forward to working with our present and future customers both in the UK and Internationally.

      It is also confirmed that his forum will continue as it is now.

      Stephen Bayley
      Managing Director

    • I seem to recall that Schulze built some experimental flutes in turned wood with an external windway blowing over the mouth, but I can't remember what he called such stops.
    • I seem to remember that Brindley and Foster's "Harmonicon" (such as here: https://www.npor.org.uk/NPORView.html?RI=N16749) was a metal Bourdon.
    • Having intended to post three more editions, the forum seems not to want to let me - file size too big.  Anyone know how to avoid this issue? Thanks, B  
    • Dear all, A friend of mine has a morbid fear of page turners peering over his shoulder during performances, and has created a number of editions of works with minimal page turns, easily managed by the player; he's given me permission to share some of them here.  They're designed to be printed on A3 landscape sheets - if, like me, you don't have an A3 printer, any decent print shop will print them for you.  He punches holes in them and puts them in an A3 ringbinder (easily available online), but I've just put the ones I've used into the comb binder.  No particular editorial ability is claimed, and if you spot any misprints there's an email address for reporting.  If these seem useful, I'll ask if if I can pass on his other editions. All the best, B Dubois, P. - Prelude et Fugue (Douze Pieces Nouvelles).pdf
