rank box organ
instrument was developed for Furman University to provide accompaniment capabilities
in a wide range of settings. A stopped 8’ provides a sturdy foundation
which, by itself, will not overpower small groups or a soloist. The choir
of either a 4’ flute or a 4’principal allows the performer to
vary the strength of the ensemble and the 2 ’octave gives the necessary
brightness to stand up to full choruses or orchestra. All the pipework is
built of poplar and maple. It is portable with the blower and bellows contained
in the base while the pipework and action are in the removable upper case.
Bi-fold doors open to reveal the façade of 4’ principle pipes.
