A mechanical musical instrument is the ULTIMATE antique! Mechanical music combines art, music, mechanism, and design into a very entertaining antique! Not only are you intellectually entertained, you are also having fun! Each roll or cylinder is a time capsule of history! No other antique can give you the same concert that was given to generations years ago! YET mechanical musical instruments are not tied to the past. New arrangements of new songs can be made. Each newly acquired roll, disc, or cylinder adds a new dimension to enjoyment. There is also a special excitement that comes from sharing the music from a restored instrument with others. Many collectors tell me they have moved from interest to interest over the years until they discovered mechanical music. Once the discovery is made, the fascination and interest literally lasts forever!
