Seek A-rolls and G-rolls
By Tom Grace

Hey everyone -- I was just wondering if anyone knows who is cutting
quality A and G rolls.  I know that Dave Miner has some in stock, but
who else is out there?  I have heard rumors that Dave Ramey in Chicago
cuts some rolls and so does Don Rand, I have not been able to reach

I would like to boost up my collection before all the sources dry up.
After seeing such high prices on a recent eBay auction, one starts to
get worried.  A Play-Rite recut went for over $70.00 alone!  So if
anyone out there knows of some good sources, please list them to the
MMD.  Thanks

Thomas Grace

 [ Six-per-inch rolls are perforated by John Malone (Play-Rite),
 [ Don Rand (Clark), and Carl Lambie, but none of these folks
 [ usually keeps a big stock on hand for sale, preferring to let
 [ the "re-cut producers" handle sales.  Among them are Dave Miner,
 [ Paul Gottschalk, and Dave Ramey.  See the MMD Sources site,
 [   The folks recutting piano rolls
 [ also have occasional nickelodeon roll offerings: check the Archives
 [ for articles by Frank Himpsl, Rob DeLand, and composer/arranger
 [ George Bogatko, and be prepared to pay about the same price as
 [ at eBay!  -- Robbie
