I picked this up at an antique store several years ago. I thought it was pretty cool so I thought I would share.

It’s a 4/5 LMMM. It’s due for new leathers and some reeds need attention. The palm “master” switch (just dis/enables the bassoon reeds) doesn’t really work well both directions. I hope in the next couple years to get around to do a mild refurbishment on it. Obviously I can’t really compare it to a modern instrument but the keyboard plays pretty easy and the bass mechanism works really nicely.

Looking good! Looks like the same vintage as that La Tosca I worked on.

I love the bling on these old boxes. I have several I'll be posting soon. Yours sounds lovely, to my ear.

Press on....
