This amazing instrument is The Hupfeld Phonoliszt Violina - an Orchestrion with self-playing Violins, Enjoy!
The ingenuity of the person who dreamed up that instument amazes me.
Holy crap, that IS amazing. I deleted my previous comments and this one is full of awe!!! Thanks, Maze!!!
Thanks Zonk, I'm glad you enjoyed it.
I loved the marble machine, I never knew about these other older mechanical wonders
wow, cool, I wonder if it could play fiddle music, can it do vibratto?
