Mechanical Music Sources List
By Dan Wilson

Jody -

If your list is meant to be international, and I notice Mastertouch is in it, don't forget the sources I mentioned in (I think) 96.05.29:-

Steve Cox        Makes very good 88n and Duo-Art recuts
Laguna Rolls marketed under "Play Time" (two words !)
Laguna label. He will copy rolls in very good
Lagoon Road condition only: you have to buy six
PAGHAM unless you can persuade him to buy some.
West Sussex PO21 4TH ph/fax +44 1243 262041

Also has medium stock of 2nd-hand rolls.

Frances Broadway ("Roll Bid Enterprise" - postal auction)
39 Sydner Road (NB Sydner not Sydney)
Stoke Newington
N16 7UF ph +44 171 254 6145
fax +44 171 249 0130 (dedicated line)
Also the sales outlet for Southport Music Rolls (new, "hotel piano" music, also good Duo-Art recuts)

There are also the Player-Piano Group "Post Bid" auctions which are run about four times a year - but you have to be a member ! See Societies - Great Britain.

Other resources mentioned in the Player-Piano Group's own list which you don't have are:-
