Wurlitzer 165 Organ Replica by Johnny Verbeeck
By Matthew Caulfield

Anyone interested in getting an idea of the sound of the replica
Wurlitzer 165 band organ, made in 1966 by Belgian organ builder
Johnny Verbeeck for Seabreeze Park, can compare the dozen new MP3
files added to the sound files section of my on-line 165 roll catalog
with the other MP3 files there from various genuine Wurlitzer 165s.

In each case the organ from which the recording was made is identified.
The recordings are not professional ones, but they serve their purpose.
The MP3 files are fairly large -- the Verbeeck ones particularly so
-- since I used a higher kbps setting (96 kbps rather than 64) for
transferring them from tape to MP3.  But even those large files
download for me, using a Roadrunner cable connection, in 1 minute or
less.  (Insert advertisement for Roadrunner here!)

While you are there, please take a listen to a new unidentified WW1
two-step added to the "Unidentified" section as no. 15.  Maybe you
will recognize it and be able to put a title to it, for everlasting
fame and credit.
