Reverting to Pedals for a Player Piano
By John A. Tuttle

[ Ref. "I Want My Pedals Back!", 040411 MMDigest]

Hi All,  Claudine wants her player piano to be returned to its original
configuration, and I don't blame her.  What fun is a player piano that
can't be pumped?

However, before any meaningful advice can be given as to where to turn
or determine what is required to do the job, I would first need to know
which parts are missing.  Considering that Weber was involved with
Duo-Art, it may very well be that the unit is an electric motor-driven
reproducing player that never had any foot pedals.

So, I'd say we need some pictures to determine the facts.  What I'd
need to see is what's inside of the lower half of the piano.
