Genuine brass and painted steel exterior make this a durable instrument that will last.  It has a keyboard for manual play and an automatic playing roll frame using the A type music roll. It can also be equipped with a midi operating automatic player system. The midi player makes it possible to play any song automatically on the Calliope.

There are different models available to fit many different needs, from catching the ears of people over a mile away, to being in a living room with one of the finely crafted hardwood cabinet Theatre Special models.  The
Tangley and National style Calliopes are great for parades, and general crowd gathering appeal.

This Calliope is as good as they get.  They are hugely dependable and rugged for over the road use. They look great too.

Beware of imitations!
A genuine Calliope is one made with real brass whistles.  Fake brass whistles (spray painted PVC pipe) don't stand up to the beauty and durability of authentic brass.
