Nick Bennett Posted November 30, 2005 Share Posted November 30, 2005 Notwithstanding the efforts of the humidifier, the organ in Halifax Parish Church has not stood up well to the heating during this brass monkey weather. The swell flutes are particularly badly affected; they are so out of tune as to be effectively unusable. The other flutes are nowhere near as bad for some reason. But the whole organ sounds dull and lifeless. It's all still working at the moment, but past experience tells me the odd note and stop will be off before long, and there will be runnings and other little irritations. Does everybody else go through this every winter? More importantly, does anyone have any tips to minimise the effects of the heating on the instrument? It's not as if the place is that well heated - it was only 50 degrees at the console yesterday. Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
