Not only are organ pipes thiner, but the vibrations are not dampened, as on
the clarinet, by the hands of the player.

Now, I and I'm sure many others assumed that since the tubes on a pipe
organ are pretty thin that they'd vibrate and add their harmonics to the
sound produced by the organ. After all, considering the volume produced
by pipe organs, it would only stand to reason that those tubes would do
_something_ to the music when they vibrated....

The sound production methods (air column vibrations) between clarinet
and pipe organ are essentially the same, except that the metal organ
pipes are substantially thinner and vibrate easier due to their material
