Hi All, Primarily in response to John Neiswinger posting about
schematics for modern Kimball player pianos, I'd just like to remind
folks that Player-Care.com has the most extensive listing of available
player piano service manuals, technical reprints and diagrams on the
planet! I have all of the manuals offered by Schaff and Player Piano
Co., plus about a dozen others that they do not offer (which include
the six modern Kimball players).
The link to the page that lists all of the references is
https://www.buysecure.com/playercare/reprints.html This is a secure
web page, complete with order form and instructions.
For the modern Kimball players, please start at:
I'd also like to report that the listings of player piano manufacturers
(foreign and domestic) continue to grow. At last count, over 930
manufacturers have now been identified. That constitutes about
a 20% increase over the past three years since the first listing was
published on the Internet (08-06-00). And, considering that the basic
listing had not changed significantly in the 30 years preceding the
Internet listing, I find the increase nothing less than outstanding.

player piano, start at http://www.player-care.com/makers.html
