Orchestrions

Organs and Orchestrions

An organ is an instrument with pipes. An orchestra, composed of automatically playing musical instruments, is an orchestrion. Given the whole story started with an automatic playing pipe organ that increasingly became complemented by other instruments, the term "organ" is more common. Our acoustic instruments are the result of years of development and are much more than just an addition of a pipe organ. On the contrary, our instruments are extremely sensitive and can play both solo and accompaniment! Therefore, we prefer to use the term "orchestrion"!

 

Like our individual musical instruments, which you can combine to your heart's content, our modular orchestrion system gives you the opportunity to combine a whole following your own taste, preferences and insight!

 

Are you looking for a very compact eye-catcher that does it all? Then the latest "Rockabilly"-orchestrion might be something for you!

 

Whatever you choose all instruments and orchestrion elements work through general-MIDI. This way you can link them and let them play all together!
