5 and 6 manual organs


Recommended Posts

How would you like to rip out "In-A-Gadda-Da-Vida" on this thing!




Even better, there's the Wanamaker Organ, the biggest pipe organ in the world. Here's a picture of the console, with its 6 manuals and hundreds of stops:



An organ worthy of Vishnu himself.



note: Vishnu has many arms.

I never actually played the Wanamaker, but I sat on the bench a number of times and got a tour of the pipe chambers. Daunting isn't quite the word. The time I would've been able to play it, the console was disassembled for repair. If you're ever in Philadelphia, don't miss the lunchtime concert at what is now Macy's in Center City.



9 Moog things, 3 Roland things, 2 Hammond things and a computer with stuff on it

I was born and grew up in Philadelphia. I've heard that organ several times though I have to admit it was a very long time ago.



No guitarists were harmed during the making of this message.


In general, harmonic complexity is inversely proportional to the ratio between chording and non-chording instruments.
