A reed organ is old and not very clear in tone. But, it has the sound of the days of Little House on the Prairie. The old clap board white churches of America of 150 years ago have reed organs.
But, the reed organs of the old parlors had an impressive gallary standing up nearly to the ceiling. There, the crystal dishes from Ireland were on display. The mirror reflected the gas lights around the room.
The sound of a well restored reed organ is one of peace and warmth.

Lee Silent Reed Organ Suction Units
Our Lee Units completely eliminate tiresome foot pumping while at the same time improving the performance of almost any reed organ. These compact units are easily installed and need not alter the organ’s appearance. Sizes are available to efficiently power the small parlor organs and melodeons as well as the larger church types (Estey) with sub bass, tremolo and couplers.
They have sturdy reliable motors with specially designed aluminum fan assemblies made for these units. They are precision balanced and shock-mounted in insulated enclosures for vibration-free operation. Flanges, flexible duct, hardware and under-keyboard switch (wired into the unit) are all supplied, together with detailed instructions for installation. Everything you need is included.
If you want to be able to retain the option to pump the organ with your feet, then you need to also order the check valve. (Otherwise you will need to remove the bellows when you install the pump.)
