The Style G orchestrion was introduced in 1911 and has become the favorite of many collectors of American orchestrions. Seeburg described the Style G as containing “two sets of pipes, violin and flute, bass and snare drum, cymbal, triangle, tympani, mandolin, loud and soft effect piano. Giving the effect of an orchestra of six men.”
The model G packs a lot of music in the space slightly larger than an ordinary upright. The beautiful art glass, melodic organ pipes, dynamic percussion, expressive piano and a library of lively music combine to give the Seeburg G a special magic that helped make it the quintessential American orchestrion.
This instrument spent many years in storage, totally dismantled, before being restored to its former glory by D.C. Ramey Piano Company. The cabinet was refinished and ivory (walrus) keyboard was restored.
Interior mechanisms have been restored; piano stack was rebuilt with all new leather, pump and reservoirs have been recovered with sealed leather. Piano has new bass strings, action was cleaned and rebuilt with original hammers.
This beautiful instrument is ready to perform for another generation. Purchase includes
