Let us know.

The Band Organ was introduced in June of 1966, and has the distinction of being the first musical instrument to be manufactured at the RMI plant in North Carolina. It was available in kit form or factory built.

The instrument consisted of a 37-note keyboard, 19 electronic oscillators and had the authentic sound of a calliope. Its purpose was to add life to a party, or add the sound of the calliope to a band. It was intended to be fun to play, and it was very successful.

As stated above, the instrument was available in kit form or factory built. In kit form the instrument could be purchased with or with out the undecorated plywood cabinet. The kit without the cabinet sold for $180, the kit with a put together cabinet sold for $225. The unit, completely factory assembled, and decorated sold for $395.
