Mechanical Music Info at Web Sites
By Adam G. Ramet
I was idly browsing about (as you do!) and came up with
a few interesting web sites you might like to take a look at;-
Leopold Godowsky Web Site
Tim Gracyks Site
On this particular page are details of early phonograph manufacturers.
The interesting entry is the one detailing that Wilcox & White set up
the Angelus Phonograph Company in 1917 as a sideline to their player
production. Now there's something I didn't know!
Harold Bauer Collection (Library of Congress)
Contains four letters from Aeolian and four from Wilcox & White and
also some other player related stuff. Someone might like to check
these out one day!
This link shows a wonderfully restored Green Welte. The links on the
page take you to detailed pages about the Welte recording process as
well as a few other instruments. It in German but the pictures are
well worth a look, at the very least.
City of Meriden
This web site actually makes mention of Wilcox & White and that they
produced the first mechanical piano. Well, we know that's not strictly
true, is it now! ;)
Happy browsing folks
