Will someone tell me what an "Ampichron" is?

Thanks, Larry Toto

 [ It's an accessory fitted to a few late Ampicos, consisting of a
 [ time clock which started the piano playing each hour, and the Ampico
 [ "Chimes" roll to play short melodies.  See the MMD archives for
 [ Digest 971117 and a few days following.  -- Robbie
