Organ Pipes to Scale

Organ Pipes to Scale

Organ Pipes to Scale

In the original image, the scale is 1 pixel = 2 inches.  For comparison, the largest pipe in the organ (the bass CCC in the Bourdon 16 in the Pedal division) is 98.6″ tall.  The smallest pipe in the organ (the g3 in the Nineteenth 1 1/3 in the Great division) is 0.5″ tall.  The widest-scaled rank in the organ is Nacht Horn.  The narrowest is the Violoncello (eventually it will be the Viola but I haven’t done the scaling work on the Choir division yet).

    The diapasons need to be a bit smaller-scaled. They’re far too wide for this organ.

      Also, the stopped flutes (Rohrflute and Bourdon) need to be much wider than I have them scaled currently. I based the scaling on R.W. Giangiulio’s wooden pipes and his Soubasse could almost be a diapason as narrow as it is. I’d like to keep the Bourdon and Rohrflute to the same scales, so I’ll use the wooden Bourdon pipes of the M.P. Moeller Opus 10101 at First Lutheran Church as the basis for the Bourdon and Rohrflute in my organ.
