NEW MASTER CONSOLE: Click on the views below for a look at the new master console.
Actually, our “new” master console is not really new. It was originally installed in the Stanley (or Stanton) Theatre in Baltimore. It has been totally gutted and what remains is the shell and keyboards. The rails (where the stop tabs are) are new (created by Kenny Crome); the pedalboard has new key tops; the keyboards have new ivory tops (salvaged from a discarded organ keyboard set) and new stop tabs; and there is a new relay and combination system.
We refer to our new console as the “Master” console. We call the “old” console the “Slave” console. Not truly a slave console in the fashion of the 1920’s, this console has its own relay independent of the Master console although its signals run through the relay of the new console. In the 1920’s, a slave console only had keyboards; all other controls were inactive on the slave. Not so with the Dickinson Kimball Slave console. The artist at our Slave console can set his own sounds.
