Although I did a Bachelor of Music before studying electronics, my major instrument was trumpet, so I didn't know a whole lot about pipe organs when I first started working here. I'm finding I'm still learning a lot. The following list of previously unknown pipe stops was found on http://www.tadstone.com/unknown.htm. I hope you find it as educational as I did.
Last year we did a new Maestro System for Timothy Easton Memorial Church in Toronto, included in the specs for this organ were 2 new ways to step through registrations, so it seems appropriate to go through the different ways you can now sequence through registrations.
Classic Organ Works has recently finished working with Bon Smith of Austin Organ Service on the installation of a new instrument at Emanuel Lutheran Church in Hartford CT. I was the lead applications engineer for this job.

Henry grew up a farm boy, getting up early each morning to help milk the cows, before catching the bus for school. He wasn't much enamored with either end of a cow however, so his heart wasn't in it, but he was already demonstrating technical creativity. I remember Henry finding a gear box once, which he than used as the basis for building a self-unloading feed wagon.
Been back for a week actually. The American Institute of Organbuilders (AIO) convention was October 3-7, officially in San Francisco, although actually in Concord CA. We got to see several customers we talk to on the phone regularly, it's great putting a face to a voice. It's kind of funny when you go out to dinner with a customer and you offer to pick up their bill, as they are such great customers, and they want to pick up your bill as you help them so much with their jobs.
