Additional information

This box was merchandised as the solution for smaller spaces, like stores, sidewalk cafes and bowling alleys, because it could be hung on the wall. Strange though, it could still be delivered with a floor stand !:

To save space, the rotating drum had moved to the left, instead of its usual place at the rear side of the box.

This was also the first Rock-ola equipped with the two-button selection system.

As option the <<<Reverba-sound>>> unit could be added giving the music a "concert hall realism".
