Fletcher, Neville H.
The scaling problems involved in designing a rank of organ flue pipes which is satisfactorily
coherent in tonal. balance and matched in loudness level are investigated from the viewpoint
of acoustical theory. The suggested solution from the viewpoint of tonal balance, that the pipe
diameter should vary as the 5/6 power of pipe length, leads to a rank which is too loud in the bass.
The usual practical solution, which is to make the diameter vary as the 3/4 power_of length and
to make...[Show more]
