Seek B.A.B. Music Rolls for Band Organs
By Matthew Caulfield

Once again a cry [*] goes up for B.A.B or Artizan rolls, this time
from Les Beebe for 46-key rolls.  Ed Openshaw, Rumney, N.H., who has
the masters and the machine to run off B.A.B. rolls of various sizes,
has plans to put his equipment to use -- but the plans aren't very
immediate, it seems.

Perhaps it would help motivate Ed if he knew what the market was for
the various sizes of B.A.B. rolls: 46-key, 48-key, 61-key, 65/66-key
or 87-key.

Matthew Caulfield (Irondequoit, N.Y.)

 [ * A 'whine' for rare music rolls seems more accurate.  Collectors
 [ talk about how they lust after something but few put up any money
 [ where their mouth is.  That's also why roll recutting projects
 [ fail.  Les and others have asked several times for music rolls,
 [ with apparently no replies.  Try offering money -- that will get
 [ some attention!  How much are you willing to pay for a 10-tune
 [ B.A.B. roll?  $20?  $80?  $300?  Are you willing to produce a roll
 [ recutting subscription project?  Ask Don Teach about the success
 [ and failure of such projects.  -- Robbie
