Kimball Electromatic & Lester Player Pianos
By Nevin Engle

Someone has a W. H. Kimball piano with Electromatic player, model 792,
serial number S84685.  The motor that drives the roll works but the
gear box doesn't put out any torque.  Are there any replacement parts
out there?

Another person asked if they could get a player unit for their Lester
piano that was gutted.  It has 26 hammers in the bass section, 32 in
the middle and 30 in the treble.  Does anyone have a player with this
configuration?  I have no idea what kind it was but the literature says
it could be one of four brands.
