Seek Virtuola (Melodia) Rolls & 65-note Tracker Bar
By Frans van der Voorde
Hello All, Does anyone have Virtuola/Melodia rolls for sale?
Virtuola was a "Poor Man's Reproduction System". You can use both
the special Virtuola System tracker bar and a 88-note tracker bar.
Mine is a push-pedal operated one in a Richard Lipp piano from Leipzig.
Supposedly 65-note tracker bars also exist for it.

A long time ago -- before the age of the Internet -- I heard of a
Virtuola, that also had a 65-note tracker bar, being offered for sale
in Brussels but I never got hold of it. I live in Holland.
As I am in the USA for a while and because the cost of shipping rolls
to the Netherlands is prohibitive, I now try my luck by asking if anyone
in the US does have Virtuola/Melodia Rolls for sale. Anyone who has a
65-note tracker bar on offer would really make my day.
