ABOUT CABINET ORGANS.
It may not bu generally understood,
even by thoso tolerably well versed iu
musical arts, that the vast diU'erenco in
quulily of tono developed in the different
makes of Cabinet Organs, is owing in n
great measure, to the different modoa of
bending tho tongue of tho reed, n slight
variation in the stylo of bend making quite
a perceptible difference in tho quality of
tone produced, as well as in tho speaking
capacity of the reed.
So difficult and peculiar in this depart
ment of work as to render it necessary for
a person to havo 11 natural gift or tact in
handling tho delicate tools used, and even
then it somotimes rcquiros years of prac
tico to cnablo one to become proficient in
Thero aro only two or thrco of tho lead
ing makors in thiscountry who understand
tho application of what is called tho now
and unproved bend in tho reed,, and
uuiong them the houso of Simmons &
Clough Organ Co,, of Detroit, Mich., havo
mado their instruments deservedly popu
lar, and aro taking tho lead in way of tho
moro desirable Improvements, having so
eurd tho valuable "Scribnor Patent,"
un application of tubes to reeds, which
materially increaso tho volume of tone,
and at tho samo timo destroy tho wirey,
motaliu sound of tho reed. This firm also
tnalto uso of the celebrated " Vox Hu
tnnna, " or ' Fun tremolo, " und also tho
famous " Vox Celeste " stop, tho uso of
whiehjiaj created Buch an cutery among
older manufacturers, wbo find il impossi
ble, with their stylo of bend und voicing
to inolio a good job of it.
It is comparatively but a brief period
sftico this firm bgan to niiiko instruments
upon n largo scale, and oiler them to tho
publio at largo through dealers, tho homo
demand having taken their entlro produc
tion heretofore, but wo aro informed that
tho oxporionco of this house dates back to
the year I860, nnd It is theso years of care
ful study and oxpjrlment which cotnbino
to make their Organs,ln many rcspccts,8U
perior to thoso of othor makers,
Tho musical editor ot tho Suporior
(Wis.) 'Times' makes mention of thorn as
follows: "Wo aro impressed with all we
road and know of tho 'Simmons & Clough
Organ.' Contrary to tho practico of
many other establishments, this firm havo
first made n reputation for their noblo In
struments, und then advertised them, It
is a mystery to us outsiders what thoy aro
advertising for, ns tho demand for theso
Organs now exceeds tho supply. Tho
groat demand for them, in fact, has com
pelled tho company to put up a now man
ufactory at n cost 01 nearly $100,000.
Thore aro only three Instruments of the
cabinet organ class in America that wo
should feol salaried in purchnslng, nnd
of tho threo wo far prefer tho instrument
made by Simmons & Clough. It can
ronder all styles of music, from the
thunders of church organ diapason to the
strains of a fine military band, or the ex
quill to tromor of fairy bells." 0-18-lf.
