oh come on! Do you play on a real pipe, or use an electric?

Electric. Hammond B-3. I do kick my own bass though, a la Barbara Dennerlein, Groove Holmes, etc.
I have played an Allen electric that amazingly, did sound very close in realism to a large pipe organ.

At the church I work at, I play a 2-manual Ahlborn-Galanti (Angelus model).

I also have access to a three-manual, 50-rank Moeller, a three-manual, 51-rank Kleuker, and a 2-manual, 17-rank Dobson. All wonderful instruments.

you are so lucky ChemicalGirl.. i'm glad you are still around.

What are you playing these days? i am working on my AGO certification and need some non-Bach* organ works to play. Do you have any favorites? (*not to challenging for the feet).

What kind of organ do I play? There is only one kinds, "A PIPE ORGAN"! The organ I play I built! It is a direct electric 6rank 2 manual pipe! My ranks are diapason, Melodia, Salicional, gemshorn, vox humana, and a capped oboe! The organ has a bourdon16' and also 8' diapason. The bourdon has a Libelick gedect also! Great little instrument, but, I want to expand to 15 rank, give me time!!!

The organ where I'm paid to play is a little two-manual, 15-stop organ:

Great:
Principal 8'
Rohrflöte 8'
Oktave 4'
Blockflöte 4'
Quinte 2 2/3'
Schwiegel 2'
Mixtur 1 1/3'

Upper:
Holzgedackt 8'
Koppelflöte 4'
Principal 2'
Quinte 1 1/3'
Zimbel 2/3'

Pedal:
Subbass 16'
Rohrpommer 8'
Choralbass 4'

A small organ, but it sounds quite good. The downside is the lack of reeds, but otherwise I like it.

I also sometimes practice on larger, three-manual, 34-stop instrument in a nearby church:

Great:
Bourdon 16'
Principal 8'
Hohlflöte 8'
Octave 4'
Spitzflöte 4'
Quinte 2 2/3'
Superoctave 2'
Cornet V 8'
Mixtur IV 1 1/3'
Zimbel III 2/3'
Fagott 16'
Trompete 8'

Choir:
Gedackt 8'
Principal 4'
Rohrflöte 4'
Octave 2'
Sifflöte 1 1/3'
Sesquialtera II 2 2/3'
Scharff III 1'
Dulcian 8'

Chest (that's how I'd translate Brustwerk):
Holzgedackt 8'
Gedecktflöte 4'
Nasard 2 2/3'
Waldflöte 2'
Terz 1 3/5'
Vox humana 8'

Pedal:
Subbass 16'
Octavbass 8'
Quinte 5 1/3'
Octave 4'
Mixtur IV 2'
Posaune 16'
Trompete 8'
Trompete 4'

Great dispositon. I only deplore that there's no swell and no combination action, and only one manual coupler (choir-great). But it makes a wonderful sound.

But if I had the money and the space to build it (or have it built), I'd prefer something more French-styled (à la Cavaillé-Coll) myself.
