Tuning meter amnesia

I am having temporary amnesia about the German manufacturer of specialist organbuilding supplies, amongst which is a very clever tuning meter which can listen to any partial of a Mixture meaning you don't have to stop pipes off. It's not Korg!

You are probably thinking of Marc Vogel

The tuner who first taught me, always used cotton wool to 'wad-off' mixture ranks. This always seemed a slow and clumsy method, especially if the pipes are planted really close together.

 

Some years later, I was shown a much simpler method - using small paper cones. Easy to make - just roll a sheet of paper into a small cone, tape it up. A few of these in differing sizes can be left in the job. Easy to drop in and remove without disturbing anything else.

 

Cheaper than a meter !

Feathers even cheaper still!

 

The Vogel link was the one I was after - thank you. I kept searching for Vogel Organ Tuning Mixture Temperament and stuff like that, and all I got was some old guy with a beard who's evidently made a record or two.
