Hello Player Friends ! Does anybody know anything about a player action
installed in a Swedish Piano (Bergqvist & Nilsson), probably from 1910
to 1920? The player action seems to be American made, with an all-metal
three-piston wind motor, and a three-row unit valve pneumatic stack
similar to Simplex.
The system contains an ordinary pump board with motor and stack governor
in one unit. The pedals are made of brass, and are very genially
sledded [stored] inside the piano when not in use. The sustain bellows
is unfortunately missing. If anybody has a picture or some other
information in this matter I would be very grateful.
