Melophone, build by Pierre Jacquet in Paris, France around 1838 - 1840.

The owner, citizen of Calgary, Canada, is overwhelmed with the beauty and sound of it. But playing it the right way isn't easy at all!!

Inside it has 62 reeds and 104 knobs to play with; playing like a guitar and pumping with the handle.
