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.
