FS: Busker Organ Rolls & 26-note Raffin Rolls
By Ed Gaida

I have a select group of busker organ rolls on special sale.  These are
rolls that I perforated for an arranger.  Most of the titles are Dutch
and reflect the music heard on street organs in the 1950's though
1970's.  They may still be playing the same songs today for all I know.
At any rate, people usually buy music that they recognize.  If you
heard them and were acquainted with the "Dutch" sound, you would
probably recognize them.

At any rate, they are taking up valuable space and I need to move them.
Quantities are strictly limited and I will not be perforating these
selections again.  As usual, first come, first served.  Click on the
link below for a listing.

I also have some 26-note organ rolls, punched for the Raffin and other
organs of the same type.  They are 110 mm wide and most of them are at
least 32 meters in length.  You can access that catalog from the same
URL.  I do not stock the Raffin type spools for these rolls.  They come
on a cardboard core.  I prefer PayPal but will accept United States
Postal Money Orders also.  No personal or business checks, please.

No, I am _not_ going out of the roll business.  The last time I had
a special there were numerous emails asking if I was giving up the
perforating business.  I am not.

Many thanks and Happy New Year.
