Music Media Prices
By Ingmar Krause

Robbie commented in 010125 MMD:

>[ A typical music roll for a 20er crank organ weighs about 300
>[ grams (11 ounces), same as a medium-size Ampico piano roll.
>[ So why does a 20-note music roll cost 50-60 USD but a '100-note'
>[ Ampico roll of the same weight is only 15-25 USD?

I don't know of anybody selling music by its weight!  The typical
way of billing for music these days is "per meter", but not in the

On a personal point of view, because of piracy it is these days not
worth it at all to make 20er music and place it for sale.  If I was to
make arrangements for someone then it certainly will not be 50 US but
way way more!

P.S.: I hear about MIDster Punch all the time -- anybody willing to
build one of those for me?
