128, rue du Bac 75006 Paris 192x- Louis Debierre

I/6- mechanical traction (electric wind supply) -

Stoplist

This organ is a ‘Polyphone’: a small (portable) organ invented by Louis Debierre. It is a kind of miniature organ with "polyphone" pipes, i.e. one pipe can produce several tones: the tallest pipes are equipped with one, two or three valves, resulting in two or three different tones produced by only one pipe, while in a ‘normal’ organ, each pipe makes one tone. This allowed to reduce the size of the instrument. Despite its small number of stops, this small organ has a great sound.
