Player Action In Spector Piano
By John A. Tuttle

Hi All,  From Nevin Engle's description of the valves and pouches,
it sounds like the action is the later style Otto Higel with the
zephyr-skin pouch blocks.  What would confirm this is the presence of
the spring-metal piece that held two adjacent pouch blocks in place.
A picture of the valve assembly would be helpful.
