The World’s Premier Collection of
Mechanical Musical Instruments And Mechanical Antiques For Sale

For over 30 years I have provided Mechanical Antiques to Clients All Over the World!

This where we build the future on the exciting items of the past! 

IMPORTANT NOTE:  My goal is that you be an informed buyer.  For example, “Has the instrument been modified and how?”  This is just one  of a number of important questions that YOU need to ask!  An uninformed buyer or new enthusiast can easily get burned.  Because of my depth of knowledge I will even fill you in with what I know about instruments I am not even offering!  Put on your ” seat belt” and let me cut through the BS of auction houses who disclaim virtually everything in fine print AND the BS of other dealers who wear the robe of flattery and leave you without important decision making information.  Remember the more they don’t want you to talk to me, the more you should talk to me!  Call me at 630-269-3059 with your questions.
