FS: Seeburg Style H Reproduction Kit
By Jon Fortunato

For sale: Seeburg Style H reproduction "kit".  What you get is a
professionally built case of quartered sawn oak by Parma Furniture
Crafters in Manhattan, New York City.  The case was built from plans
drawn up by the late David Ramey, Sr., from an original H in his shop.

Reproduction front, side glass and lamps were made by Drehoble Bros.
in Chicago, the original makers of the art glass for Seeburg.  Original
plans and original sheets of old glass were used.  I have the brass
over lays that were remade as the by the original company in Brooklyn,
New York.  David Ramey, Sr. and his son David, Jr., made all of the
internal parts, including a complete Drum shelf with all mechanisms for
the cymbal, castanets, bass snare drums and their expression units.

The player stack was reproduced, too, matching the action let off rail
of the donor Seeburg piano going inside the case, this piano comes with
this package.  A complete pipe chest with its sets of violin and flute
pipes were made along with its large reservoir.  An original pump and
large Seeburg H motor is with it as well and a H roll frame and tracker
bar.  Brand new exact H copied xylophone included too.

The statues were faithfully carved by machine using a set of originals,
(they're currently unfinished).  Gutted Seeburg upright nickelodeon
piano goes with the package, and 33 reproduction Seeburg H rolls are
also included.  David Ramey, Jr. can assemble all of this into a
gorgeous machine for a fraction of the cost of an un-restored or
restored original.

The Seeburg H is $35,000.00 or best offer.  Located in Rockland County,
New York.  Pick up only.
