Guest Patrick Coleman Posted December 31, 2007 Share Posted December 31, 2007 The mention of Charles Brindley in the Abbott & Smith thread prompts me to ask for enlightenment. We have acquired a 16 pedal stop from this Charles Brindley organ in Menai Bridge. It is a very large scale stopped metal rank which served as its only pedal stop and will serve us to fill out shaky parts of our own Pedal Organ until it can be removed and repaired/replaced. It makes a lovely rounded sound and is effectively a large metal Bourdon, smooth inside and quite conventional except for its wide girth. The puzzle is its name - Harmonicon - which seems everywhere else to refer to vaguely reedy stops with some internal architecture, or possibly to free reeds - all of which this stop is definitely not!
