Pipe Organ

This morning I had the grand pleasure of receiving a tour of the BU Pipe Organ from BU Engineering Alumnus Alvan Moore.   He came to my attention after a brief exchange with ECE Professor Robert Koguga.  Here is another great article on the organ. Nelson Barden, who spend several years building the organ, gave me a quick tour of things, which you can do at the official BU Organ website.

Here are a few home photos from today.  Notice how large the pipes are in comparison to the size of Nelson Barden as he climbs the ladder to make a repair. The air compressor for this organ is huge.  Much larger than the compressor on our robots!
