Description

This working organ at the Herschell Carrousel Factory Museum of North Tonawanda, N.Y. is the largest of the Artizan line of military band organs. This video tour shows the mechanics of the back, the painted facade of the front as five songs play on the organ, as well as views of the Artizan Factories, Inc. grounds in 1926 and 2017. Built in 1925, the organ was first installed in a roller skating rink in Ohio and last used at the State Fair of Texas. It uses a compressed air system to operate its 203 organ pipes, two drums, orchestra bells, and cymbal.
