ALEXANDRE HARMONIUMS CKAPPELL'S, 50 NEW BOND ST.

ALEXANDRE Sc SON

Hare taken out a new Patent for the Drawing-Boom Harmonium, which effects the greatest improvement they have ever made in the Instrument. The Drawing-Room Models will be found of a softer, purer, and in all respects more agreeable tone than any other instruments. They have a perfect and easy means of producing a diminuendo or crescendo on any one note or more; the bass can be perfectly subdued, without even the use of the Expression Stop, the great difficulty in other Harmoniums. To each of the New Models an additional blower is attached at the back, so that the wind can be supplied by a second person, and still under the new Patent the performer can play with perfect expression.

THE NEW CHURCH HARMONIUM,

. WITH TWO ROWS OF KEYS.

These Instruments are a perfect substitute for the Organ; the upper keyboard has a Venetian Swell, and acts as a Soft or Choir Organ, on Which a perfect diminuendo and crescendo can be produced; and the lower keyboard answers the purpose of a Full Organ. The tone of these Instruments more closely resembles that of an Organ than any Harmonium yet produced, being rich and pure in quality. The construction is of a simple character, and not likely to be affected by damp, rendering them peculiarly suited to Churches. An additional blower is attached to each Instrument
