Andreas Ruth und Sohn Style 38 band organ

  • Imported from Walwdkirch, Germany.
  • Originally used a 94 keyless organ (played by air pressure) using cardboard book
    • This was replaced early on by a Wurlitzer 165 music roll system
  • Approximately 300 pipes
    • Due to noise complaints by the carousel operators and visitors, several of the ranks of pipes in the band organ have been disabled to reduce the volume of the music.
      • Decommisioned pipes are still intact and fully functional
  • For a time, Looff served as the sole distributor and American representative for A. Ruth and Sohn
  • ​This specific organ was made especially for display purposes as Looff promoted the sale of Ruth's organs to accompany his carousels.
  • In 1995, carved instruments from the facade of the band organ were stolen.
