Hello! Since I took over the organ here in 2007, there are still some pipes I've never heard properly or at all yet. Some 32' flues are deformed because of weight and bad mounting, and regarding the Posaune 32', some reeds are out of voicing, and bottom C is completely mute. The latter might suffer from some dirt, others would need re-curving. But to work on them, the resonators (wooden full length) have to be removed, as usual. In this case, this would need at least three men working under somewhat complicated and risky circumstances. As the need for removing dust, insects etc. might not be so seldom elsewhere, too, I was wondering, if my desire of having having little doors in the boots to access the shallot without lifting the resonator has been realized anywhere. I'm sure the UK has the highest ratio of 32'-reeds per square mile or inhabitants, so this forum should be the right place to ask! (or at least to share the burden of maintaining such pipes...)
