Hi Arthur,  If sheer numbers are any indication, I believe you've found
the right place to gain maximum exposure in a short period of time.

The Player Piano Ring has had over 12,000 visitors in just three months.
The arrangement of the ring is changed weekly to give everyone a fair
shot at being 'next' or 'previous'.  I believe there are 35 member
sites, which include the Mechanical Music Digest and the Piano Roll
Digest, two very popular groups who publish member-written articles
about the trade.  The MMD is sent (via email) daily to it's more than
850 members world-wide.

I'm forwarding this response to the MMD to let the members know about
you and your background.  By the way, I list three player techs in
Florida in my Player Technicians Listing.  Right now, the listing is
free.  Visit:

Best of luck in Florida,

John A. Tuttle (
