It's been a good few years since I've seen an impressive organ


Tongue8cheek

Same. Have all of your organs failed too?

What's better than roses on a piano? Tulips on my organ

It's funny, but this is just a decorative face. The real organ is usually much more impressive. Most full size organs have a facade like this, of mostly nonfunctional pipes. The real pipes are housed in a pressurized room. And depending on the individual organ, there are likely many hundreds or even thousands of pipes hidden away. Sometimes the very largest pipes in the facade are functional, as they are impressive and also pretty damned hard to hide. If you ever get a chance to tour inside of an organ, take it. They are incredible machines.

I watched a tour of the Wanamaker organ on youtube a few years ago. The scale of it is amazing - I'm not sure if it's true, but I've heard the organist has to adjust their playing because of the distance some of the pipes are from the keyboard.

If that organ were anthropomorphic, it would be a villain in a Disney movie

There's actually a mean organ in the Christmas Beauty & the Beast movie, good call!

Cathedrals once were power stations harvesting energy from the atmosphere for the community. Built my a civilization that no longer exists and has been omitted from history. They were never churches. They were taken over by religion so as to inspire awe and demonstrate timelessness and power.

And thus god was so pleased with the material sacrifice and sheer exorbitance of this most devout and sacred offering that he personally shown down a ray of righteousness forever ensuring the safety and security of… oh wait

Finally an impressive organ post that's not NSFW.

If you have seen polish porn, you would know this isn't the most impressive organ in Poland.

I was expecting a priest… never mind

I am friends with some woodworkers that do detailed stuff like this and showing them a picture the consensus is not one of us has the skill to do this. It’s breathtakingly beautiful!

Remember, it’s not bragging about you organs size if you have the photographic evidence to back it up.


The_Maddest

That’s amazing


lordperiwinkle

Holy fucking Moly.
