Jennings Organs and Harpsichords

Maker of hand made continuo organs and harpsichords.

This new chamber organ for Lillestrøm Church has a principal 8ft and 4ft. The bottom octave of the 4ft is borrowed from the tenor octave of the 8ft. For those of you who are interested, to achieve this the pipes have to be conveyed through a set of clack valves (non return valves). The pictures show the valve box and a diagram of how it works. The system also needs dividers within the grid of the soundboard. This means that if the pallets are closed any wind wanting to go back into the bar is sealed off from the rest of the bar, so wind will not get to any other pipes of stops that are drawn. It's a bit complicated but it works! ... See MoreSee Less
