It won't be long until the snow arrives, STOCK UP now on your Mechanical Music winter projects !
On behalf of the Mills Novelty and Haughawout Music staffs, as the year draws to a close, we wish everyone a safe and wonderful holiday season. This time of year brings families together, and the enjoyment of Mechanical Music entertainment makes the occasion more fun for everyone.
We have been servicing, buying, and selling Mechanical Music Instruments and Mills Violanos for decades, and it has been a great pleasure to meet people with like interest. Sales for 2015 have been excellent! Sorry we have been tardy in updating this site, travel during the past few months has been demanding. Many buyers have continued to acquire top of the line mechanical music machines even before we could list them for sale on the website. So if you are looking for that one "special" piece, please give us a call at 800-691-6042---we may know where to find it!
It appears this year will exceed (again) our previous year's performance---THANK YOU for helping with our success.
Finally you can find posted photos of the moving process for the very large Welte Wotan, see the blog on this page and enjoy. Our team of the finest experts in the USA handled this difficult moving process and the client seems very happy with the result.
Many very desirable pieces have found new collection homes in 2015, and we finally have a few Mills Violanos back in stock for you to consider. It is unusual for us to have both a single Mills and double Mills Violano in excellent playing condition also with our midi digital player system installed. These machines are plug and play, no waiting on the restoration process as somebody already did it for you!
Several months ago we mentioned that we have several thousand music rolls for Orchestrions, Violano, Nickelodeons A,G,H and many other styles, Phonoliszt, etc. We are happy to report that these have ALL been sold. Several large Orchestrions have been sold, and we are in the process of revising the list of the great instruments that are still available.
One interesting new item in the "for sale" section is an Aeolian Hammond Player Organ complete original rolls and the famous Leslie speaker, check it out! If you like to work on your own collection pieces this might be for you---at a dirt cheap price. Since these organs were electronic when new over 50 years ago, they do not have the space requirements of a full "pipe" organ, while the sound is still very impressive. The Leslie speaker is worth the price we are asking, and you get the entire organ also! We are always in need of warehouse space, so this has to go!
We acquired a very nice Verbeeck organ cart, brand new, ready for the wheels to be put back on, to transport your small to medium size monkey organ. This one is also priced to move immediately, at a fraction of its original cost. We have a very nice Link Nickelodeon, and several other original nickelodeons that have just arrived!
The Andrews collection is being downsized not totally dispersed. We continue to represent this family in the private sale of several remaining items that are out of scope with the current collection space. Please feel free to contact us directly by cell phone, 715-697-9242 if you have interested in any of these items.
These are some of the most desirable mechanical music instruments available anywhere from any seller!
Our current offering include some of the finest large Orchestrions. The wonderful Wurlitzer Pian-Orchestrion Style 30A (one of two known), has not been for sale in the collector market in over 40 years! Any one of these pieces would be the "star" of most automatic music collections.
Opportunities still exist for discriminating buyers who are looking for solid future investments against unknown financial market setbacks. Many of these extremely rare, extremely fine examples are being purchased---and will not again be on the market for a very long time!!! Look over our "for sale" items and give us a call, 800-691-6042.
