Identifying Pianola or Orchestrion Music Rolls
By Jacques Thijs
Years ago I bought a box with around 40 old rolls, in good condition.
I always supposed that these are pianola rolls, since I did not know of
the existence of orchestrion rolls. I thought orchestrions always used
cardboard books. Since I want to sell these rolls it is important to
know for which instrument they are intended. How can I see if they are
for a pianola or for an orchestrion?

[ Richard Vance contributed much data about rolls for American pianos
[ and organs. We still need much more information about orchestrion
[ rolls and European music rolls. -- Robbie
