About the Reed Organ Society

Welcome to the Reed Organ Society. Founded in 1981, the Society is an international, non-profit organization devoted to the appreciation, study, collection, restoration and preservation of reed organs. Membership is open to anyone who is genuinely interested in reed organs. If you enjoy these organs and want to learn more about them, there is a place for you in the ROS.

The Reed Organ Society does not appraise reed organs. Some individual members are qualified to do so.

Join the Reed Organ Society!

Scope of instruments we are interested in

The scope of instruments ranges from harmonicas, accordions, concertinas, and lap organs, through melodeons, harmoniums, parlor, chapel, and church organs to mechanical player organs, whether they be foot-pumped, hand-cranked, or motorized.
