The 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 Atlas".

Please note that this database is no longer updated or maintained.
