    Hi, Adler - welcome to the forum. To identify your organ, start here:

    http://www.reedsoc.org/

    Select "ROS Database" in the left-hand menu and then search for "Adler" in the search box. The first one is 104666 and is identified as 1910. Hopefully you'll find a picture very like your's in the listings.

    Do you play? Are you planning to repair or restore the organ? It was probably made in Kentucky. How far did it get to come to you? (You may want to stick your vague location in your profile so folks will know about where you're at.)

    If you're new to pump organs, feel free to visit my famous Kimball thread linked below. (I went into it knowing NOTHING about reed organs. I still don't know much, but it pumps and plays.)

    After you get a few posts in, you can post a picture or two of the organ. Let us know which organ at RSoc resembles it. Again, welcome. We need more reed organ enthusiasts.

          To me it looks like the pencil writing says

          Can anyone shed any light?

            I have a reed organ identical to yours. Will check it for similar markings.

              Thank you. It looks like a cutie. Bet it sounds like one, too, and has room-filling volume. Does it pump up, and do the stops work? What are the stops names from left to right?

                I will check out the stop names. The pump assy. has been recovered and yes it does sound nice with a full bodied sound for its size.

                  Thank you. I would be interested to know what you find out

                  Just looked at your profile. I lived in Bovilar, TN for about 10 years. Moved to Florida about three years ago. Was back in Bolivar about two weeks ago to get this organ.
