Ampico Record Music Roll
By Matthew Caulfield

[Ref. 040616 MMDigest]

What do you want to know about your Ampico rolls?  They are what they
say they are, music rolls containing the tunes named, by the composers
named, and played by the artists named, for use on the Ampico
reproducing piano.  Reproducing piano rolls have coding punched in
them that operate the expression elements of a player piano to make
the performance less mechanical and more artistic than you would get
from a normal player piano and its music roll.

I bet what you really want to know is how much they are worth.  That's
usually the "bottom line" question on people's minds when they ask for
"information."

Matthew Caulfield
