Restoration of Ariston Organ
By Ingmar Krause

[ A forwarded note from Eddie Scott asked: ]

> I have an old Ariston organ in need of total restoration.  Do you
> know of anywhere in the UK that I can get this done?  In addition,
> I have approximately 30 of the original Ehrling cardboard discs.

If there is none to do so in the UK, he can

1) Try it on his own, with help on questions by someone else (me,
for example).

  Pros: cheap
  Cons: probably not well done or never finished 'cause of frustration

2) Send it over to me, to let me do it.

  Pros: it's gettin' done and will be made to either (a) be quite
original and in some way "playing", or (b) be a little optimized to
play well by losing a little bit of the original way (not recognizable
without opening the instrument).

  Cons: expensive and could take some time.

3) Send it over to me, so I can give it someone to do it.

   Pros: it's gettin' done relatively quick;
   Cons: even more expensive !

ERlanger drehORGEL-Trio, Familie Krause,

P.S.: I'm interested in a list of those 30 cardboards with titles
and numbers as far as they are recognizable.

P.P.S.: I didn't answer directly to the author of the forwarded mail.
