Seeburg Orchestrion, Style KT

Location: Music Hall

Manufacture Date: Circa 1926

Seeberg quality is well known with collectors. This was one of their most popular models, made between the mid-teens and the late 1920s. The KT is among the most desirable with both collectors and listeners because of the combination of the 65 note piano, toe-tapping percussion instruments, and the excellent arrangements of the "G" rolls it plays. It was probably originally shipped from Chicago to Butte in c. 1926. Thousands were made and hundreds exist, but their great music makes them far more valuable than rarities that play poorly. We have three other Seeberg K's and had more before the scorched Bale instruments were sold.
