    Practice Organ

    I've just taken delivery of my latest e-bay purchase, and it's a beauty ... I am now the proud owner of a practice organ.
    No more having to negotiate rehearsal times at the Church, I'm hoping this will help me with learning some more challenging pieces.

    Hey Jonesy, good news; does it have MIDI connections? If so you can connect to your PC and set up a VPO on Grand Orgue and have proper pipe sounds!
    Cheers MIKE.

    Lars - it's a Wyvern Gloucester ST30
    Mike - Nope, just analogue ... I'm using it purely as a practice instrument, so I can get more time at the console.
    I still have the ultimate Alan Digital to play at my local Church, so sounds wise, I'm more than happy with what the ST30 has to offer.

    Counting the minutes until I can leave the day job for a long weekend of practice!!!

    Indeed - already having more practice and getting more pieces ready. Hopefully will be able to record a few more and get them up here. Not sure about youtube - don't have professional recording equipment, so will just be audio. Got a loose connection, so having some issues with a pedal sometimes working sometimes not, but have a local fix it man who can sort that out.

    Thanks ... it's got a tiny fault which is a loose connection on the pedal board. I'll get that fixed this month and also the volume control is noisy, but that's just some dust or general crud in the wiper - hoping I can find someone local to fix both at a reasonable cost.
    Apart from that, it's brilliant and I'm finding over an hour a day to practice which is really good.

    If you can find some 'contact spray' for electronic switches, that might help to clean the wiper. Don't oil it though ... that will only tend to make matters worse.

    Ahah ... the pedalboard problem ... probably a loose nut at the organ console ... ... Just Kidding, but couldn't resist. The made me do it ...
