    Question Organ blowers?

    I am making a small home organ. What kind of blower should I use?

    (Is the blower usually loud?)

    now that's a leading question. I read on a website (can't remember where) that a guy used a vacuum cleaner (in reverse) and then had it put into a sound proof box. As to loud, what? the blower or the organ?

    I've seen that same application, Contratrombone64, in Italy (Assisi) on a small portative I played in 1992. Also known some local folks here who have those quaint ornate pump organs in their homes who have made the conversion from manually pumped bellows to a vacuum cleaner blower.
