  Historical Holyoke Carousel 
Location Holyoke, Massachusetts

Located at the Heritage State Park 
As one of less than 60 remaining full size wooden carousels this classic 1929 Philidelphia Toboggan Company Carousel #80. This represents the lost folk art of hand carved wooden horses. This magnificent hand carved carousel has 48 magestic steeds, 2 spectacular chariots, artisan band organ and over 800 brilliant lights. It is housed in a beautiful new building in the Heritage State Park. It is open year-round.

Merry-Go-Round "Carousel" comes from the Italian carosello, "little war,"
an ancient horsemanship game. About 80 percent of U.S. carousel figures were horses.

Hi  !

The first time I saw  (and heard )  " MUSICAL MECHANICAL INSTRUMENTs  "   

  was in  Bruchsal (Germany) castel, the second time was in Utrecht -"band organ museum "  ,

 in those cases I was amazing from the beauity and the great sound they made .  

 Taking into consideration that these marvellous instruments were built with technology of 100 years ago...

I bought some  records, tapes, cd's  but actually I didn't use them because  

 their sound was a poor fake , they did'nt reflect the original !!

 My deep  "Dipression" increase as I know  the fact  that in my country (ISRAEL)  

there is not even one single bandorgan to listen!

Till...   (Now- I come to the point )  I  find your BONBON site , 

As soon as  I understand the big potential in your midi's site, 

 I bought a good sound-card +  HI-FI speakers system for my P.C  ...

the results are         GREAT !!! 
The band organ  midi's  sound   EXACTLY  as I heard in holland !
THANK YOU ,     Your site made me very happy !
Yours         Alon
