Midget Organ Has Full Range (Nov, 1937)
Midget Organ Has Full Range
Weighing only 125 pounds, a diminutive electric organ has recently been completed by Louis Weir, of Boston, Mass. Tiny whirling wheels generate the fundamental notes, while the variations and harmonics of a full-size organ are produced by an intricate combination of switches and stops. An amplifier swells the volume of the instrument from a faint whisper to a resounding crescendo.
