mrbouffant Posted February 14, 2015 Share Posted February 14, 2015 I was asked to visit and play an 1874 Forster & Andrews house organ recently. When I arrived I was surprised to see that the pedal organ listed on NPOR was not evident. However, it soon became clear that the pedal board pulls out from the casework and can then be played once it is suitably anchored to the floor. Afterwards, it slid back neatly into the case. Quite an ingenious solution when one doesn't want the instrument dominating the room in which it is situated. Is this a common feature of house organs in general? I had never come across it before and it struck me as novel. Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
