Thread Name: Seeking your knowledge of pianolas!
Subject: RE: Seeking your knowledge of pianolas!
There is a usenet group for piano tuners try that-maybe two groups....one may be for tuners the other pianos in geneal.

Check google as I remember finding a good source somewhere on the things...

Also....find out how many notes it has. At one point a convention was adopted before that I would imagine they would be more valuable however....rolls might be harder to find or should be dealt with more care.

An interesting field....automatic music players. I just finished assembling a collection of them from the musical casket to interchangable disk music box to edison machines to flat disks to wire recorder tape recorder 8 track....cassette....cd....eventually I will go on the road with this.... Player piano however was too large to cart around I did obtain a roll for demo purposes but went for the musical casket for the show....
