Freins for Wurlitzer Pipes
By Matthew Caulfield

Back in 1975 Doyle Lane purchased the remaining assets of the T.R.T.
Manufacturing Company, North Tonawanda, New York, successors to the
Rudolph Wurlitzer Company's band organ business.  Among those assets
was a huge stock of miscellaneous parts.

(For the record, "T.R.T." are not Ralph Tussing's initials, as commonly
said, but stand for the three firm partners, Ralph Tussing, his
son-in-law Lloyd Robins, and Ralph's son, Gordon Tussing.  Also for the
record, Ralph's name is pronounced Two-sing, not Tuss-ing.  More than
you wanted to know, but important stuff.)

Doyle was rather peripatetic and moved from Vancouver, British Columbia,
to Hillsborough, North Carolina, to Middletown Springs, Vermont, where
he now resides.  Many of the harder-to-find and one-of-a-kind parts
have been sold off, but Doyle still must have a good supply of Wurlitzer
pipe freins, reeds, shallots, and things of that kind that were
produced in quantity.  Contact him <> and ask
him what he has that you might need in making your Wurlitzer 105.
