gately automatic organ
Restored 14-note Gately organette with 1 new three tune music roll. Nice walnut case with elaborate stenciling and spring loaded top expression panel. This unusual organette uses spring activated brass keys that read the holes in the music rather than using the music roll directly as a valve. As the music passes through the tracker bar the brass keys push up through the holes in the music lifting the pallet valves via small leather strips. Restoration included new bellows, inner/outer flap valves, pallet valve leather & lifting strips, felt damper, leather seals and re-tuned reeds. Rewind crank is included.
Additional music rolls available through Pipes Of Pan.
