Guest Lee Blick Posted January 10, 2006 Share Posted January 10, 2006 I was listening to Pipedreams (it is a haven as far as I am concerned) and they played the lowest notes of the 64ft flue rank on the Atlantic City Convention Auditorium organ and it indeed sound like the rotating blades of a helicoptor. It was quite exciting to hear it on my bass woofer enhanced sound system. Are there organs in the UK that would benefit from such a rank? I was wondering whether this would really be heard under a full registration or too muddy to accompany quieter registrations? How much would a rank like this cost today. In fact I would be interested to know how much a rank (61 notes) of each 32, 16, 8, 4, 2, mixtures cost in today's prices. Do larger ranks cost more because of the need to use more material, or are smaller ranks more expensive because of the intricate detail required to produce them. N.B.
