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: http://www.player-care.com/techform.html.
Best of luck in Florida,
