Vintage Mechanical Music Machines

Vintage Mechanical Music Machines from Sound Ideas is a trip down musical & machinery memory lane with a nostalgic nod to the fantastic innovators of the late 19th and early 20th Centuries. Sound Ideas recording team traveled to downtown historic Franklin, Pennsylvania to capture the style and whimsy of the antique mechanical musical instruments housed at the DeBence Antique Music Museum.

 

The DeBence collection is showcased along with a wide range of antiques and many of the instruments in the collection are very rare. For instance, the 1913 Berry-Wood A.O.W. is the last of its kind in existence; the Cremona J “Tall Case” is one of only a few manufactured; the 1927 Artizan Air-Calio is the last original example remaining; and the 1930 Wurlitzer 65 note band organ is the only one of its kind ever produced.

 

This slice of history and ground-breaking engineering is all available here, recorded live on scene as the automatons, one man bands, orchestrions and Wurlitzer machines played on.

  • 1904 Wellerhaus Fairground Organ
  • 1905 Mills Racehorse Piano
