Fairground organs comprise some of the most colourful automatic musical instruments ever made. These instruments loudly voiced so they could be heard above the surrounding din, provided music for merry-go-rounds, carnivals, amusement parks and similar attractions.

Typically, such an instrument contains several ranks of pipes, all voiced on high wind pressure (usually from 8 - 12 inches of water - column pressure).
