Seek 58-Note Spool Drive for Wilcox & White Organ
By Charles Barrett

I have a Wilcox & White Symphony which is missing its original
58-Note Spool Drive.  I am hoping that someone out there might have
one to sell or a suggestion for a suitable substitute spool drive unit
in the event that a proprietary Wilcox & White Symphony 58-Note spool
drive unit is not obtainable.  The specifics on the missing unit are

 - Uses 58-note player rolls that are 10.25 inch wide,
 - Holes per inch = 6.00

If I can "rob Peter to pay Paul", by using another bolt-in player
spool drive unit from another manufacturer, then that is fine too.
Suggestions are certainly welcome.

To further complicate matters, I was also considering converting it
over to MIDI control in lieu of a spool drive unit so that I can
program it and have it play without the need or hassle of paper rolls.

Thanks in advance for your assistance, everyone!
