    Been there and done that John, back in my band days, both with the guitar players, and also adjusting various things on the hammond / piano combo I used to play.
    Was hoping that I wouldn't have to do that, but some weeks later, I'm still tweaking it to get it how it should be.
    If I find the person / persons who did this (if it was human intervention), I'll insert them into the choir register personally :-)

    I really enjoyed reading about your theater organ at home. What an amazing story!

    For church organists, this is known as "how to tick off the organist". It happens when somebody else plays and knows how to change the pistons. Many recent organs have a computerized piston system with many "levels", some of which can be locked in. This at least solves a lot of the problem. But if it's an older organ with only one setting for the pistons, most bets are off. Moral: Be sure and check things out if somebody else has messed with the organ.

    Or ... just lock the instrument down and take away the option for people to mess with it.
    It's a shame, but when trust is abused, sometimes we need to revoke the ability to do it again.

    It is a shame to have to resort to this, but seems necessary if not just for the protection of the church's investment. The organ at my church requires a key to start the blower. Unless the blower is running which also activates an air switch, which in turns powers up the console, the electro-pnuematic pistons cannot be changed.

    My little Johannus Opus 10 has a separate key switch to enable the SET piston. Without it, combinations can be recalled but not changed. I'm sure a competent repairman could fit your instrument with one at not a very great charge.
