Value of the MMD
By John A. Tuttle

Hi All,

Echoing the sentiments of many others, I'd like to voice my
sentiments about the value of the MMD.

In as few words as possible, "It's Invaluable". There is no other
resource on the planet that even comes close. I know because
I've checked every other resource that's out there.

Naturally, there are other resources like Player-Care and The
Player Piano Group (and many others) that offer quite a bit of
information about specific mediums, but the MMD has the
most comprehensive database of information about mechanical
musical instruments in the entire world.

About 10-15 times a week (and maybe more) I refer people to
the Archives at the MMD. And if I can't find information about a
particular subject, I send a posting to the MMD so there will be
some tiny bit of information about that topic in the Archives. That's
the best way to keep the Archives growing.

In closing, I'd like to remind the members of the MMD that Jody
and Robbie spend countless hours making this information
available to us all. And I think it's our duty and our responsibility
to continue to support them financially whenever possible.

 [ John, much for your kind words and encouragement to Robbie and
 [ me for what we do, to our readers who also WRITE, and also for
 [ the nudge to help support us financially.
 [ I'm pleased to announce that I've set up a PayPal account which MMD
 [ readers can use to send support.  This is infinitely easier for us
 [ than the old VISA mechanism we were using.  It does require that
 [ the sender set up a PayPal account.  Its not hard, though, and if
 [ you use our "referral link" we get a small commission for the signup.
 [ Every little bit helps.  Access to PayPal is secure, via SSL.  To
 [ sign up for a PayPal account so that we get a commision, go to
 [ I have added clickable signup logos on the MMD Website.
 [ To actually send money, go to the page:
 [ and send the money to:
 [ Contributions (not tax deductable as a charitable contribution)
 [ can be in any amount, and any amount is appreciated!
 [ Thanks in advance for your support!   --Jody
 [ P.S.  There are a stack of checks on my desk that need to be
 [ processed.  Every one of them is appreciated and will be
 [ individually (privately) acknowledged soon.  We hope that
 [ the PayPal account will simplify supporting us for many
 [ of you.  It does work Internationally.
