Yamaha has been building organs since the late 1800's.

This little gem (using the term loosely) followed me home today.

These organs were used in small churches that maybe didn't have a regular meeting place, military applications where they were used in the field, or anywhere a small compact easily moved, instrument was needed.

This one needs some work but it will "play" if you pump fast enough (bellows leak air).

There are Youtube videos of classical pieces being performed on these little organs, kinda neat.
