Default Organ Failure

the "catchy" headline in the most recent issue of Nature describes the collapse of the pipes in several of the great organs of Europ -- I scanned one page and place it below since even with my subscriber ID I can't seem to open the page:

Highly interesting reading this is.

After the last statement, I would imagine that all that acetic air is coming from something else inside the organ itself. I wonder if they're really looking inside the whole organ, lol, and not just the pipes.

It's amazing that these things have lasted so long, would suck if they needed to be rebuilt

i was wondering whether it might not be a decomposition product of leather bellows, hide glues, etc. formic acid, acetic acid, etc.

Or even some impurity from the smelting process used at the time.

Possibly, but it's interesting that it might have taken this long for such a problem to become evident.
