I'm a relatively young piano enthusiast, currently rebuilding a Knabe
Ampico B with believed factory installed Ampichron. I'm located in
the Netherlands and some months ago I purchased the Knabe in the US,
in Florida. I'm desperately looking for the tubing diagram and layout
of the Ampichron.
Also I would like to know the function of two extra small pneumatics
located at the back-side of the drawer; these pneumatics are not
present in Ampico B's without the Ampichron.
The Knabe is also equipped with a Capehart switch, that is to say, the
Capehart knob is there but the actual switch and wires are scavenged
out the piano.
Also this I would like to bring it back to as original as possible.
Would anyone have available this Capehart switch, and/or would you have
any ideas or information of how to get this switch or a replacement?
Is there any info how the wiring was routed into the piano?
Some months ago a new Ampichron kit with instructions was put for sale
on this forum by Jim Moore. I contacted Jim, but the kit was already
gone. Could the new owner possibly make a copy of the documents for
me? Please contact me at my email address below. Any information
would be highly appreciated.
