Wurlitzer Band Organ Registration Controls
By Jack M. Conway

Hi Group,  Some arrangers make my Wurlitzer 146-A, which has no
automatic registers, sound as though it did.  I really like David
Stumpf's arrangements on roll 13408 and "Great Moments In American
Music, Volume One".  His arrangements allow certain registers to,
in effect, play solo.

Some of Tom Meijer's arrangements have trumpet fanfares.  His roll
Eur-1 "European Favorites" features a trumpet fanfare.

There are other newer arrangements that really show the organ.
