Blower For Voicing Organ Pipes
By Christofer Noering

Paul, Bontempis and similar organs being harmoniums as well as
accordions, I think they operate with suction blowers, _not_ with
pressure blowers.

But, dear MMDers,  _please_ correct me if I'm wrong -- in that case
I would really like to butcher that awful plastic Magnus Organ next
door!

Best regards

PS: Of course I won't!  I intend to pick that beautiful specimen of
1970s plastic up "for a song," then put it in my own garage and just
wait until the last Magnus Organ has been scrapped!
