To determine the age of an
instrument you need to have access to the old records of the reed organ
manufacturers. However, these records no longer exist, so you need to use
other sources of information. These sources can be information found in the
instrument, the brand name on the instrument, or old catalogs. Most old reed
organs also have a serial number, somewhere written or stamped in the organ.
This serial number can often be found by opening the back of the organ.
You can help us to extend the information in this database by registering your reed organ with the ROS, it is a free service and you help many other reed organ owners and enthusiasts. To do that, either use our online registration form and email pictures to the ROS Database Manager or download and print our registration form and send it by standard mail to Don Swett, 595 S Alton Way Apt 3D, Denver, CO 80247, USA.
