Q: How does it work?
A: It uses compressed air from a ‘Blower’ to play tuned pipes.
The airway to each pipe is blocked by a wooden ‘pallet’, sealed with leather, until the pipe is required to ‘speak’.
In addition to the keyframe, this organ is also able to play electronically via small electromagnets which open and close the ports instead of the cardboard book.
