Spreckels Organ - San Diego - Doug Folkerts
This fellow explains many of the mechanical functions of the organ.  We learned that the expression "pulling out all the stops" refers to the "stops" that control which pipes an organ is actually playing at any time. By "pulling all the stops" the organist is playing every pipe in the organ.
