I am interested in finding someone with a Wurlitzer 105 or other
Wurli band organ that is willing to help me out. I need to know what
kind of shallot and reed to use on a set of the trumpets.
The ones in particular are the ones with wooden resonators and wooden
round boots. I need to know the diameter, as well as the shape of
the shallots and reeds: straight, flared, square end or rounded end.
If someone has such an instrument, please snap me a picture of one.
I am particularly interested in size of the top and bottom notes of the
rank so I can take a scaling of them and make them or have them made.
Judging from the tone, I expect these will be wide scale, flared and
square at the bottom but, not having one to look at, I do not know.
In case you have this info already written down that would be extremely
