R.F. Gellerman Reed Organ Database
Robert "Fritz" Gellerman was a communications engineer, historian
and reed organ enthusiast. He was an inspiration for many in the reed
organ world, and this inspiration carries on this day even after his
untimely death in 2011. This database is from his collection pictures
and research that contains more than 10000 images and years of research.
This pictorial database is intended as an aid in doing research on
reed organs. The information can be searched by the maker's name, model,
or by the type of case, by doing a text search for a key word or simply
browsing through the database. References to dates are intended only to
indicate that a specific model was in production in that year. Some models
were produced for many years, so the dates are not definitive. Additional
details can be found in "Gellerman's International Reed Organ
