Seek Orchestrion Tubing Diagram
By Ken Marts

Hello,  I recently acquired what I would call an orchestrion.
It looks to be a remanufacture of a 48-inch Sojin piano, with high
polish black case, a beautiful stained glass front, top and bottom,
coin operated.

Rumor has it that it originated in Las Vegas somewhere, perhaps in
the 1970s or '80s.  Inside the top are xylophone, tambourine, wood
block.  Inside the bottom are bass drum, cymbal, snare drum, roll box.

Along with trying to find out some history on it or the manufacturer,
I would like to find a tubing diagram.  Also, I'm not sure how to
determine what kind of roll it uses.  Any information would help.

Thanks.
