Tracker Bar Cleanout
By John Poling

Hi All,

My player piano has probably never had the tracker bar and the tubes behind it cleaned out. I suspect that some of the holes don't work and am ordering a tester-roll to find out for sure. Should there be some blockage, is the suction device that QRS advertises enough, or would it be just as simple and effective to use my Hoover and tape over the end of it to cover all but a small space? As far as my geographic location, north Texas is where I call home.

Jody, I know you are having trouble with my provider accepting the email; they claim to be in the process of upgrading their mail servers and promise the situation will improve. Perhaps this will make them understand that many, many potential future sales may be at stake for them in situations like this. Flashnet, all these people are watching you!


May Love, Peace, Light and the Joy of Music

Reign in your home and heart.

Musically yours, John Poling
