Guest Cynic Posted September 21, 2009 Share Posted September 21, 2009 Now I'm pretty ignorant where solid state is concerned. I have in my care an instrument with such a system dating back to the mid 1970s, the job consists of three ranks + repeating mixture - a later example of the standard Walker Positif models. Generally it's been fine, all faults on re-installation have been tracked down, except.... according to an intelligent priest who understands about music, there were weird unexpected notes coming out of it a few days ago. They were described to me as 'like stars' just coming out 'any old how' without much suggestion that the player could be at fault. Needless to say, I turned up early yesterday to check it over before the morning Mass. Worst scenario, if what was actually happening were damaged contacts touching or dirt in a few pallets I would just have removed a few pipes to get them through the service. What did I find? The organ appeared in perfect playing order, nothing apparently wrong at all. I don't think he dreamed it, and in this particular case we have a Catholic Priest with all his marbles and without a drink problem. So..has anyone out there in Mander Forum Land come across an organ behaving like this and could it be the solid state? All comments gratefully received. [Apart from those who suggest that the church should have bought a tracker organ, please.] Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
