IAPPA 2000, Tepetongo Park

As time comes around to write our column things are going at a fast pace as we are in the final stages of preparations for the IAAPA Show in Atlanta, Georgia.

This year we have a very large display area and are featuring new products which include the new generation 2000 organs and our new high tech sound system with a special organ facade for those locations where an organ would be desirable but absolute control of the volume is a must. This unit also has built in public address system for making the safety announcements at the carousel and is the perfect answer for those who can not use an organ but still want the sound and appearance of the real instrument

All of the organs displayed will be MIDI controlled and complete information will soon be available on our web site:

Last week I was again at the Tepetongo Park in Mexico to finish the updates and repairs on the model 87 Stinson organ. It was a great trip and I will also feature a photo of their organ on the web site.

Now I do not think of myself as an old antique man but I was reminded while there that I might be a little like the old gray mare where the song states (She ain't what she used to be.)

A Mexican man in full cowboy dress was renting riding horses and I decided to have my picture taken on one of them. I put my foot in the stirrup and found I had to have my guide help my other leg over the rest of the horse. I might not be what I used to be but at least the horse didn't laugh at me. I think a carousel horse is better suited for me in the future.

We have a new brochure now and would be happy to send one out. Just Email, call or fax us to get your copy.

And so it was in the old organ Shop.
