Playing Reproducer Rolls on 88 Note Pianos

I generally use drafting tape instead of masking tape because it is not as gummy to start with. I don't leave it on all the time so it doesn't get a chance to harden up as masking tape sometimes will if left on too long. Finally, if needed, use a bit of alcohol (the rubbing kind) on a Q-tip or soft lint free cloth to clean off any residue.

Hope this helps,

Bob Conant
