Wow, contrary to the doomsday "sky is falling" music dealers, we are experiencing a very excellent start for the new year. The two large orchestrions (Hupfeld 131C and Welte Philharmonic) offered on this site last month, along with several more modest instruments sold very quickly. We have added more fresh inventory, at EXCELLENT current market prices, so check out the bargains! And remember, on any item we sell we are happy to provide a private inspection and supply all the details we can. Give us a call at 800-691-6042 and ask for Bob.
Here's A new musical idea for you----perhaps you need to start a Church or University! Or better yet a cemetery of your very own! We have recently acquired an outdoor CARILLON!!! It is all ready for that special place in your new venture, complete with a player setup to provide rousing carillon concerts on the lawn... Now, tell me who else could bring you such an opportunity, at a tiny fraction of the cost of a new Carillon---- except Mills Novelty Company!
Your neighbors will love you for providing them with soothing music for the delight of all passersby within a mile or so. This instrument is in our warehouse now, ready for immediate delivery. At only $2,500 this massive unit (you figure out how to re-install it) will be on its way to that favorite grave yard or that shopping center Church you always wanted!
Franz Ochrlein large roll operated monkey organ, with a complete automata band!!! This gem has it all! Several moving band figures play their instruments as the band master conducts. This is a very rare book operated organ and plays like it is new, no flaws, no problems, no repairs, ready to go right now! It is approximately 5' tall, and has the original case design and a large supply of music books in its rear storage area. These have not been manufactured for many years, and we do not know of another for sale at this time. Click on image or here for more details.
Here is an OUTSTANDING example of the extremely rare Mills Bowfront Violano. This instrument is ready for the most advanced collection, or as a single instrument to be the star of any collection in the world! It has our famous digital player system and also plays from original paper Mills rolls. It is common knowledge that these instruments have brought $220K at recent auction; our example is equally fine and working, as well as more modestly priced. This plug and play example can be delivered anywhere in the world, ready to delight all that are privileged to see and hear it. This is the first Bowfront we have had for sale in over a year, who knows when (if ever) another might come along. Click on image or here for more photos and details.
We are CERTAIN that nobody is offering another one of these----since this is the only known example! A beautifully restored Resotone Grand Harp, as pictured in the Encyclopedia of Mechanical Music on page 597. This instrument was also professionally restored a few years ago and works flawlessly. Dating from the early 20th century, it comes with about a dozen original rolls (also the only ones known to exist). It has a stunning oak cabinet and is ready to move into any collection in the world. Give us a call and we will provide all the details, 800-691-6042.
The King of American Orchestrions, the Seeburg H is the finest and largest of the Seeburg line. This instrument was restored by David Ramey several years ago, and was lot #762 in the Milhous RM auction. It was purchased by a collector who has now decided to sell it as it is out of scope with his primary interest. Plays extremely nicely and is priced well below the current asking price of $175,000 for similar instruments. Give us a call at 800-691-6042 and we will detail why this is a wonderful instrument at a wonderful price!
This 165 Stenson band organ had been a part of a famous Ohio collection for many years. Although modern (manufactured about 20 years ago) it does not need any work at all. Alas, the owner passed away and we have been liquidating the entire collection for the estate.
No matter if it is destined for a private collection, or if you have a commercial use (such as an amusement park, carousel, etc.) this will give you great trouble free daily service at a fraction of the cost of a Wurlitzer 165 original band organ. We are prepared to offer it at a substantially reduced cost, Call us today at 800-691-6042 you won't be sorry. Nothing on the market can come close to our price---we have been told by the estate trustee to "move it out"!
Here is a slightly smaller Franz Ochrlein Organ, which was made several years ago and still plays very well. It comes with a lot of music songs, and has a small band master on the front that keeps time with the music. Again, it is priced EXACTLY in keeping with the tight economic times, where are you going to find another one for only $4,000, they cost more than this when they were being made---and they are no longer available as Mr. Ochrlein has retired. Click on the photo at the left for more photos and all the details or call us as at 800-691-6042.
