Founded in 1976, Le Ludion restores street-, fair-, monkey- and band organs, and all kinds of mechanical musical instruments. It also manufactures its own instruments and produces card music enabling a vast array of music to be played. Calling on the services of fine local craftsmen for the sculpting of the wood and the decorating work, the firm itself has all of the skills and expertise required for the pipe-, wood-, pewter- and brasswork. To make its instruments easier to use, new technological processes have been incorporated into its productions, such as a chip card to replace the perforated card and musical programming that can be stored on PDA. Working to a large extent for the international market, Le Ludion has a number of major collectors among its customers, mostly in the USA.
