Seek Orchestrelle Book & 58-note Roll Conversion
By John McClure

Does anyone know where I could obtain a copy of the book, "The Aeolian
Orchestrelle -- Its Operation and Overhaul", by Arthur WJG Ord-Hume?
He refers to the Orchestrelle on page 406 of his book on barrel organs.
I've tried and it is not listed.

Also, in doing research in the archives, reference to modifying 58-note
piano rolls for use on an Orchestrelle is mentioned but not described.
I would love to know how to do this as it would open up a whole new
world of musical possibilities.

Thanks to all who responded to my search for an instrument.
I'm deciding on the choices presented.

Best regards,

John McClure,
