There are six wind reservoirs within the organ. As the name suggests, these store the air ready for use by the pipes. They also regulate the pressure of the air that is sent to the pipes.
The different reservoirs supply different sections of the instrument and vary in size from 1x1m (approx.) to 4.2x1.8m (approx.)

Large "Main" reservoir: £

Tuba/Tromba reservoir: £

Trombone/32ft reservoir: £

The 16' and 8' octaves of the Dulciana rank (left) and trebles of the Open Wood rank (right).
The chest is the wooden structure below the pipes.


Chests, or "windchests" are wooden structures on which pipes stand. Often the terms "Soundboard" and "Chest" are used to differentiate between the main chest for a particular department and a smaller chest for a particular stop, or larger pipes that are sometimes placed elsewhere due to the amount of space they require.
The internal mechanism of the chest admits air to the correct pipe at exactly the correct moment, corresponding to the stops drawn and keys depressed by the organist.


Items available:

Trombone chest: £

Double Diapason / Open Diapason (Pedal) chests: £

Tromba chests: £

Dulciana chests: £
