Nelson-Wiggen Style 6 Orchestrion
Nelson-Wiggen Style 6 Orchestrion.
The Nelson-Wiggen Style 6 was the top-of-the-line keyboardless orchestrion made by that firm as a competitor to the similar Seeburg KT Special. Much more rare than its Seeburg equivalent, it is considered to be one of the best sounding orchestrions of its kind.
