*** The first 12 pipes of the Pedal 16' Bombarde were from Virgal Fox's home organ (this information was relayed to me personally by Gene Burmaster but I have not independently verified it). Numbers 1-6 had full-length wooden resonators while numbers 7-12 were mitered metal. The wooden resonators would not fit in Gene's vehicle when he transported them, so he cut them in half at the mid-point and reconnected them by gluing and screwing plywood "band-aids" on all four sides. The tongues on these pipes were massively thick and heavy and they barely spoke on the much lower pressure of this instrument, sometimes taking up to two seconds to begin sounding.
