Seeburg Model E Special

Among the orchestrions made by the J.P. Seeburg Piano Company, the E Special is one of the rarest. It was produced for only about four years towards the end of piano production at Seeburg. There is thought to be less than a few dozen extant examples. It has the instrumentation of the much more prevalent cabinet model KT Special but in a full size keyboard piano.  

The E Special features a piano with expression and mandolin attachment, reiterating xylophone, bass drum with tympani effect, snare drum, cymbal, triangle, wood block, castanets and tambourine. It plays from the plentiful style G or 4X music rolls.
