Year of manufacture: approx. 1920 Serial
Mechanism: Philipps DUCA changer
One of the Frankfurt manufacturer's specialities was the automatic reel changer systems, known in the product catalogue as 'turret mechanics'. At the beginning, the music rolls had a brass rod in canvas, which could be hooked into the mechanism - and then be automatically hooked in/out and changed. This is an extremely rare Pianella "D" (DUCA) reproduction piano with 5-fold changer in very good original condition. We are not aware of any other instrument of this type. A rarity for every collector or museum.
