Does anybody know about the Hammond 825 church organ model? I believe it is from 1991. If so, could you please tell me anything you know about it? Is there a good website for this? What are the pipe organ stops like?

The only useful info I could find on this was in an Ebay listing, which you can view at your liesure from this Google Page (http://www.google.com/search?sourceid=navclient&ie=UTF-8&rlz=1T4GFRI_enUS224US224&q=hammond+825).

If one wants to hear what a pipe organ stop sounds like, go listen to a real pipe organ. No amount of electronics or computers can duplicate that sound - although some do come close.

Krummhorn ... whilst I agree, I recently heard a Makin organ and really, couldn't tell the different. Yes, there is a sense of massiveness that only pipes and wind can deliver ...

:-) I know where you are coming from. But most electronics suffer really from lack of expertise in moving air . . . when one sets out to make a difference, one can:

Thanks for the links.. very good sounding organ I would say. I have always been Partial to Johannas( larger units) myself. I think with electronic organs that the installation of the instruments has the most to do with sounding the instrument. i.e. amplification, proper number of various speakers for ultimate sound production etc. etc. I aways compare it to the speakers in your computer verses an external set with far better sound.

Hi!

Here's another sound that I have been working on:

It's rather a novelty in England
