Pipe Rank Manifest

The 3/12 Grande Page Theatre Pipe Organ is extremely well equipped with a myriad of tonal flavors and toys that give it the capability to play any song an organist wants. The twelve ranks, containing 976 pipes, are arranged in two chambers. These pipes range in size from big ones taller than a man to small ones the size of a pencil.

Most of the pipes are mounted in twelve wooden chests. There are also eight offset chests for the Bass extensions, for a total of twenty chests. The pipework gets its wind from a Spencer blower. The Moving Combination Action is controlled by an Arndt Organ Supply Company control system with Peterson stop action magnets and key transposer.

The solid state multiplex organ switching relay is made by Z-tronics, and there is a Trousdale MIDI computer system for recording and playback of all performances on the instrument. It is quite possible for the organ to literally play itself! And the MIDI capabilities allow for an endless variety of digital voices to be accessed using the Yamaha Disclavier system and any other MIDI device a musician might want to employ. The Moving Combination Action system is made by Arndt Organ Supply and has Peterson Stop Action Magnets.

Soon, the entire control system is to be updated to include 99 memories, each containing 99 levels in the Moving Combination action, so that any organist can store and retrieve their own custom combinations. New capabilities are constantly being added to bring this organ into the twenty-first century, something old yet something new.
