Updated through online information from Margret Downie Banks, National Music Museum Associate Dir. -- "It has been on long-term loan (since 2002) to the Meredith Wilson Museum and Music Man Square in Mason City, Iowa. Actually, after it is safe for us to travel once again, we are going to be dismantling the extensive exhibit there and will bring everything back to Vermillion. All I remember about the Reproduco is that it is tremendously heavy! Basically, it arrived here in 2001 and almost immediately went out to Mason City..no time for photos. It was shown in a very small, “vaudevillian” type theatre, where visitors could watch a silent movie starring Charlie Chaplin."We received the most recent update for this note from Jim Stettner on November 07, 2020.

The "Reproduco" organs came in three styles: A 1-manual organ with a roll player - much like a Photoplayer; a 2-manual instrument with a lower piano keyboard and an upper organ manual with optional roll player; and a 2-manual, 4-rank pipe organ with a horseshoe console having a roll player in the center.We received the most recent update for this note from Jim Stettner on November 06, 2020.
