Hi Everyone, My name is Kirk Gipe, and my wife Josette and I are
brand new to the world of music made without electronics of any kind!
What will they think of next? :-)
We recently bought a old upright player piano at auction, and are in
the process of fixing it up. It's a 65-note Kohler & Chase with a
working player action, but with a poor finish.
We have located about 20 rolls for it, and we just got three additional
rolls in a box full of rolls that fit something else. These "extra"
rolls are older, and are, I believe, 58-note rolls. How do I go about
identifying these so We can find them a good home?
Also, a couple of these rolls are marked 65-note, but have the drive
pin on the wrong (left) side. One was a 10-tune roll, and I was able
to rewind it, and flop the supply spool around the other way, and after
adjusting the tracking it played great.
Any one out there have any ideas or help? Thanks very much
P.S. I would like to say that in the short time I've been on the list,
the information I've read has been very helpful. Thanks.
