Gottschalk Rolls
By Wayne Stahnke

In yesterday's Digest, Larry Lobel asked for leads on rolls containing
the music of Gottschalk.  This note is directed to Larry, but I have
placed it here (rather than in private e-mail to Larry) because I think
it may be of interest to others as well.

Larry, I recently located a number of rolls of the music of Gottschalk,
and I have borrowed and scanned most of them.  My new scanner recreates
the master roll from which the production rolls were made, so it is now
possible to make a "replica" roll (i.e. a hole-for-hole copy) that is
functionally indistinguishable from the original.  The critical "layover"
test shows that even the original bridging is preserved intact.

I suggest that you recast your request for Gottschalk rolls slightly.
Most rolls are now in the hands of collectors, and change owners only
very rarely.  However, my experience is that collectors are very open and
generous about loaning rolls for scanning.  Therefore, if you change your
plan of attack slightly, and ask to borrow Gottschalk rolls for the
purpose of making hole-for-hole copies, I think you will be able to find
all of the Gottschalk rolls still known to exist.

I intend to perforate a number of hole-for-hole copies of selected rolls
in the near future.  If you like, I could include your rolls among them.

I hope this note is of value.  With best regards,

Wayne Stahnke
