Melville Clark Apollo Player
By Debbie Legg

Dear fellow techs on MMD, In a couple weeks I will be going to give an
estimate on rebuilding a 1905 Melville Clark Apollo upright foot-pumper.

This particular player will be a first for me.  I have read all the info
available in Reblitz, Bower's, PPCo's cat., etc.  Have any of you
rebuilt one of these?

It has the spring wound rewind, etc.  I am assuming being an early model
it will have the pouch pneumatic/valve combination and probably strike
the keys from above.  Any advice or cautions would be greatly

Thanks in advance,
Debbie Legg
