Many small pipe organs have been built using “unit action,” a system that allows one rank of pipes to be used for several stops. For example, an eight-foot Principal can be wired to play an octave higher creating an “independent” four-foot Octave. Unification fails when an organbuilder tries to create a Mixture by borrowing from other ranks. This nine-rank instrument includes an independent Mixture, providing a “real” Principal Chorus. Well-built and well-conceived, this instrument would be useful for the small church or chapel, or for serious practicing at home.
