MusingMuso Posted April 11, 2011 Share Posted April 11, 2011 I am having to endure an almost silent bottom Eb on the (sole) pedal Bourdon.....can't play the St.Anne. Now I keep scribbling in the tuning-book, "Bottom Eb Bourdon" and nothing has materialised sonically from the tuning visits over a period of about 18 months. Last time, I wrote "The Eb is STILL almost silent....should we order a new one if the old one is worn out?" The reply came back....."I can't get anymore out of it without increasing the cut-up." "Bovine excrament"" I thought; or words to that effect......it used to work and now it doesn't. Tonight, I shall get out the ladders, clamber up the back of the case, open the beast and climb in to investigate. Would anyone like to vote on the likely scenario? Is it:- a) A dead mouse blocking the foot Insufficient cut-up (We'll leave the sly smile in place) c) Inadequate wind d) A split in the pipe e) An ill-sealed stopper Unless I fall to my death, I shall report back, but on the assumption that I will live, what do our organ-building experts think?
