Joe,

Tim is quite an amazing organist. Here is another of his goes on the real deal:

The audio is a little rough.

Hi, I had almost forgotten about this thread. Amazing what drama can erupt from a simple post :lol: . I will try to get another photo to attach, showing the front full view of the console. I actually tried to upload it last time, must have clicked the wrong file! On a side note, this is my latest recording: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Af1ZJbKG0wg

Phibes,

That's a nice console! I think it looks better than a lot of the efforts over the years by major manufacturers to capture the look of a theatre organ console in something better suited to a home. Hope you get many years of enjoyment from it.

I'm afraid the goal of being able to play not even half as good as Tim is more than I'll ever accomplish no matter how much I practice.

I really appriciate all of your compliments. Some might not believe it, but it has only been around a year and a half since I even first heard a theatre pipe organ LIVE. Before that, I focused strictly on piano. Of course, theatre organ caught on, and now I've almost forgotten about piano...
