  1. Half-draw stops appear quite often on the specifications of small- and medium-sized mechanical action instruments from Continental and North American builders these days. I’m not aware of many instruments from UK builders with them, Generally they draw a single component from a Compound stop eg a Fifteenth from a Mixture or a Twelfth or Nazard from a Sesquialtera or 2- or 3-rank Cornet. Sometimes they have a different function eg providing a choice of lowest note on a Cornet, or changing the composition of a Mixture for a 16' plenum. My questions are: Are these half-draw stops a good idea? Are they only appropriate on smaller instruments? Are they only practical on instruments with completely mechanical stop-action or are they compatible with electric combination systems?
  2. I was wondering if people generally use 8-foot stop(s) or 4-foot stop(s) for the chorale tune in the pedal. I have experimented with both, and 4-foot stops sound fine even if Bach didn't call for them.
