Usually, mechanical organs are pipe organs although some instruments were built using reeds similar to those found in a harmonium. Since the 1950s, some instruments have been built using electronics to generate the sound, though still operated by mechanical or pneumatic means. From the 1990s pipe organs have been built that are operated by MIDI rather than the earlier mechanical means. Originally, the music for mechanical organs was stored by pins on a large barrel.

The organ barrels must be sturdy to maintain precise alignment over time, since they play the same programming role as music rolls and have to endure significant mechanical strain. Damage to the barrel, such as warpage, would have a direct (and usually detrimental) effect on the music produced. The more notes, the longer the barrel. The longer the tune, the greater the diameter. Reblitz, Arthur . Q. David Bowers.

Ord-Hume combines experience into this volume obtained by none other. When an organ he restored fifty years ago needed freshening, I sent it to him again. This volume does need expansion after many years, but I have not found any problems with the content, unusual for other works on the subject of mechanical music which change with the wind. Techniques of conservation and repair have changed and should be reviewed, of course, and the author would agree.

If you are interested in barrel organs, and who isn't, this is one of the definitive sources for your library. Barrel Organs are the descendents of the oldest church bells of the middle ages, when clocks had no faces and time was told by the chimes (our word "clock" comes from the german word Glocke, meaning bell). The original church bells had large wooden cylinders (barrels) with huge pins sticking out which struck levers attached to ropes that rang the bells high up. These large barrels eventually were adapted to use in reproducing music in organ devices, such as monkey organs and large orchestrions. If none of this makes sense, don't worry, but for those who want to know more, including how these music machines work, buy this book.
