FS: A-Roll Remote Electric Player Unit
By Matthew Dow

I have a custom-built A-roll player unit capable of running a 61-note
instrument that I would like to sell.  The player unit was used aboard
an excursion boat in West Virginia to play a 32-note, air-operated
calliope.  I was advised by a friend to list it on this site.

The player unit was located in the pilothouse.  Inside the player unit
were pneumatics that operated microswitches which were connected to
electric valves on the calliope.  I have included some pictures below.
