gazman Posted May 17, 2009 Share Posted May 17, 2009 Hi Folks! I'm after some recommendations along the lines of "These people know what they're doing" to "Don't touch the following people, even with a disinfected bargepole", please! I need to obtain some quotations for replacement of some electronic basses in a substantial pipe organ. The present electronic basses (a couple of 32s and 16s on the pedal, and the bottom octave of a 16' tenor C rank on a manual) were installed some 10 years ago, along with some terrific speakers, and were highly effective. Unfortunately, the electronics were plagued with gremlins from day one, and have now broken down almost completely. The church has taken the decision to retain the effective and substantial loudspeakers, but to replace the electronics and, perhaps, to enhance the system a little further. There is no further room for any additional pipes, so electronics will need to continue to be the way forward. So, I'm looking for a company who knows what they're doing with producing convincing electronic organ tones to blend in with existing pipes, and who would be used to getting the electronics to work with the existing transmission and capture systems. I'm a little out-of-touch about the very latest developments in electronic organs, and would like to know of some companies who could be recommended. Google comes up with a number who offer this sort of work and, whilst I'm sure a number of them are good, I suspect (from what I've heard in the past!) that a number of them are less good. In deference to our generous hosts (who, I believe, are not overly keen on having electronic instruments discussed on these forums), and due to the nature of this request, I'd be delighted to receive any advice about this by PM, if anybody felt so willing. Thank you. Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
