July brought a trip to New Orleans, followed by a week of Covid! Although all of the symptoms were no fun, it did provide a two day window of isolation in the basement. This meant a solid two days of wiring! At this point the marimba, chime action and all manual chests have been wired. Many amphenol ends had to be made as custom cables were put together. Now everything is tied up and connected on the chamber end of things. Work now continues terminating a fairly large clump of wires to the relay boards!
Finally, I’d like to thank Andy Meyer of Jerome B. Meyer & Sons for repairing two orchestral oboe pipes that had resonators mangled and broken off. Thankfully what remained of them was taped to their boots. Andy worked his magic and brought them back to life!
