Tubing Schematic for Ebersole Player Piano
By John A. Tuttle

Hi All,  In answer to Edward Emley's question about a tubing schematic
for an Ebersole player, Edward didn't supply enough information to
answer the question.

Ebersole used at least three different player systems in their player
pianos during the years that they made players.  They used the H.C. Bay,
the Krell and the Standard (not necessarily in that order).  So, first
he has to figure out which system is in the piano.

To help him (and thousands of other people with a similar question),
some time ago I put up the web page "850+ Player Piano Makes & Makers,
and the Player Systems that They Installed".

Following the links next to each manufacturer's name will take the
visitor to a 'systems' web page that contains information about
identifying the player action. The 'systems' page also contains a link
(or links) to any available technical information about that system.

To begin the search, go to

It should also be noted that only a small handful of manufacturers ever
produced an actual tubing schematic.

After being asked about a basic tubing schematic for a Standard player
system more times than I care to remember, I finally drew one up and
placed it at the web site. It's at
