List of Rollographies and Compilers
By Art Reblitz

At  we include several major rollographies and links to others, all in one place.  We're always interested in adding more links.

Terry Hathaway has spent years meticulously compiling these.  Each of his rollographies begins with an opening descriptive page.  At the bottom of the page are buttons which open reports that are sorted in various ways.  All of Terry's reports are created from master relational databases, making the various sorts possible: by roll number, tune title, and in some cases, composer.  Another button at the end of each page leads to instructions for reporting additions and corrections.

-- Wurlitzer 65-Note Automatic Player Piano and 88-Note Player-Piano
Rolls (includes detailed information for over 3,400 regular, roll
changer, and long roll frame rolls): 

-- Wurlitzer Automatic Harp Rolls (all 238 rolls, compiled from the original Harp roll ledgers in the Gilson Collection): 

-- Wurlitzer/Philipps PianOrchestra, Paganini, Pianella & Duca Rolls (1600 rolls): 

-- Wurlitzer Concert Organ Rolls: 

Our links to outside rollographies currently include these:

-- Artizan, B.A.B., and North Tonawanda 8 to the inch (Dave Haibach and Fred Dahlinger)

-- Coin Piano ("A" rolls and certain others; Frank Himpsl)

-- Encore Automatic Banjo (Rick Crandall)

-- Hupfeld Phonoliszt-Violina (Rick Crandall)

-- Mills Violano-Virtuoso (Jack Breen)

-- Operators Coinola (Rick Crandall)

-- Wurlitzer 165 with links to 125, 150, and 180 (Gary Watkins and
Matthew Caulfield) 
Please submit links to other rollographies to [delete ".geentroep" to reply].  All types of existing rollographies are of interest (reproducing piano, player piano, orchestrion, organette, band organ, pipe organ, etc.) We do not have time to create new rollographies.  We encourage anyone who is working on one to report it to MMD and to us, to avoid redundant efforts.
