Would like to know more about the organ beyond what Google offers. Esp the console and controls. Looks modern and obviously updated.

Often, the German Wikipedia page about the church has information on the disposition of the organ(s). In this case, you can find it here:https://de.wikipedia.org/wiki/St._Lambertus_(Düsseldorf)#Orgel

(please copypaste the link, due to the Umlaut (ü) it appears not to work directly)

Appreciate. Quite a story. Without wanting to be critical, but find the (computerized, possibly literal) translations to be interestingly amusing at times. As.in referring to the choir organ it says '"The instrument has 54 stops on three manuals and a pedal . It can be played from two gaming tables. ". 8) Possibly got those tables from IKEA maybe? :wink:

Ok Ed, that wasn't too "Galant" of you to make me do a spit-take while drinking my coffee and reading your note!
Cheers, Bob

Sorry Bob, that's an oops on my part.

Along that (sorta) same line, I find it interesting to read all of the fine print. Such as this item description on Amazon:

It says they don't charge for Certified Frustration here? interesting: Could be I misunderstood, maybe?

Size. - 8 inches
Color. - One Color
Style. - 8 Inch 5 Speed
Pattern. - Drill Press
Power Source. - Corded Electric
Voltage. - 120 Volts
Item Package Quantity. - 1
Speed. - 3140 RPM
Certification - Certified frustration-free


Think of how boring life would be without a little humor once in a while. :roll:
