Player Piano
There are close to 100 pages on this Web site that include photos and MIDI samples of player pianos, nickelodeons, carousel organs, band organs, and calliopes. This is a fun site that offers MPG3 video clips of the old nickelodeon and player pianos. It requires a fast connection to appreciate these old instruments; however, the time spent downloading is well worth the wait.
