Player reed organ
By Jason Klinger

Dear Fritz,

Thanks for the info. I HAVE seen the Jackolodeon that you mentioned. It was at Toy-Fest in East Aurora NY this past summer. It looks a lot like a big, green television cabinet with lights on it. Regardless of it's strange facade, I thought it sounded great. That was most of the inspiration to "playerize" my reed organ. It's about 1/3 completed as of today. I hope it won't be too much longer.

One other thing, does anyone know if Lauter-Humana unit pneumatics will work screwed down horizontally as opposed to vertically like they are in a player ? ( the valves will travel from side to side insted of up and down ) These will be the type of valves that I will be using in my organ. They will be screwed directly to the vacuum chamber already contained inside of it.
Thanx !!
