Rebuilding an Orchestrion Accordion
By Bob Smith

I am rebuilding and restoring a Mortier accordion, with 41 piano-like
keys on the right or treble side, and 36 2/3-size piano-like keys on
the left or bass side.

I would be interested in conversing within someone who knows about this
unit.  One of the questions is, because it plays on pressure only, how
much releathering of the reeds needs to be done.

Thank you in advance,

Bob Smith
Murrieta, California
