    Questions about history and development of Pedals

    I've been trying to glean from the internet (mostly from here http://www.concertartist.info/organhistory/begin.htm)

    Basically it sounds like only in the mid 1700s and after (except for Germany which was earlier) did you start to see Pedalboards bigger than an octave or so, if at all. Can anyone speak more on this?

    Hi spotty,

    *Socrates: "My opinion is: Truth is absolute, not opinion, and that you are in absolute error. Since this is my opinion, then according to your philosophy you must grant that it is true."
