The Robert Morton style 39 and 39-A Fotoplayer pit organ is a very
compact design in a single cabinet, and similar in ability to a larger
model of the American Fotoplayer. The lowest 12 base pipes of the
16-foot Tibia rank are located outside of the organ cabinet because
they are too long and big to put inside.
The style 39 and 39-A pit organ is shown and described in the Robert
Morton organ section of "The Encyclopedia of the American Theatre
Organ" Volume 2, by David L. Junchen. They are the new and improved
model of the Fotoplayer for theatre use, as advertisements by Robert
Morton claimed about them. There are 2 original Robert Morton double
American Fotoplayer style 88-note roll players.
These Robert Morton Fotoplayer pit organs are very adaptable to being
played by other organ roll music players and now by MIDI systems and
the great and increasing amount of keyboard music available on MIDI
files. They are just the right size organ for a small theatre or home
use. Please email me for more information or phone 1-801-394-7263.
