Positif (with expression pedal)


I am looking for a 3 man Cavaillé-Coll for my Hauptwerk set up which has the Pos under expression. I use Caen at present which only has the Recit pedal. Can anyone let me know if they have come across one? I see that the 1854/80 Ducroquet/Cavaillé-Coll Organ has both manuals under expression. How have people taken to this organ as one that may be used to record a wide range of French organ works? (I am thinking Tournemire especially). Thanks

It's a nice instrument, but bear in mind that OAM forbids any public installation or commercial recording with their sets. They do allow posting on CB (but I made sure to ask permission)

You may use the Caen Extended which has the Positif with expression pedal:

Many thanks with help and I have now downloaded the free extension with expression pedal to the Positif. All seemed to work very well. I now need to buy the hardware!

Does anyone know of a good pair of expression pedals at a budget price or second-hand? Thanks.
