It is estimated that only 10% of the instruments produced by Weber have survived to this day, including only a handful of the Weber Otero machines.  This machine can produce a concert quality performance.  Having two ranks of pipes plus an compliment of percussion instruments in combination with a concert quality Feurich piano and an expression mechanism, the musical effect is virtually indistinguishable from the performance of a live orchestra. The installed Feurich piano is known to be of very high quality, while some of the other units produced used the less expensive Forster piano.  This machine was restored by one of the finest restorers in the country, and has enjoyed playing in Southern California for more than 30 years.
