Blackett & Howden 2/9

2 Manuals, 9 ranks - 7 Tuned percussion - 8 traps - Curved console (Christie) as installed at Coburg Town Hall, Melbourne, Australia

The organ specification is :-
MAIN CHAMBER, (lower) - Viole 'D' Orchestra, Celeste, Diapason, Stopped Flute, Tibia Clausa, (Wurlitzer), Chrysoglott, and the Relays and Switches, (by Christie).

SOLO CHAMBER, (upper) - Tibia, (metal), Tuba, Clarinet, Vox Humana, Xylophone 1, (by Christie), Xylophone 2, (by B&H), Glockenspiel, (Compton), Cathedral Chimes, (Christie), and the usual Bass and Snare drums, Cymbals, Traps and Effects.

A large Aeolien Organ Harp, (61 notes), is unenclosed, and mounted high up on the rear stage brick wall, it is hoped to add a Piano at a later stage.

The compressed air is provided by a 'Discus' blower driven by a 3 phase 10 HP motor and provides about 21 inches of static wind, more than enough for an instrument of this size. Pressures used in the organ are 6 inches for all the Flues, 8 inches for the metal Tibia and Tuba, and 9 inches for the Tibia Clausa.
