Longest marathon playing barrel organ
  • This record is for the longest time to continuously perform music on a barrel organ.
  • This record is to be attempted by an individual.
  • The measurement value is time in days, hours and minutes.
  • For the purpose of this record, a barrel organ or roller organ is a mechanical musical instrument consisting of bellows and one or more ranks of pipes housed in a case, usually of wood, and often highly decorated. The basic principle is the same as a traditional pipe organ, but the barrel organ is activated either by a person turning a crank, or by clockwork driven by weights or springs. The pieces of music are encoded onto wooden barrels (or cylinders), which are analogous to the keyboard of the traditional pipe organ.
