Nelson-Wiggen Tubing Diagram
By Jack M. Conway

Hi Group, Mike Walter asked for a tubing diagram for a Nelson Wiggen
Style 2 nickelodeon.  According to "Encyclopedia of Automatic Musical
Instruments," "Style 2: The "Pian-O-Grand," a piano with mandolin and
one rank of pipes -- either violin or flute, as the buyer preferred.
The Style 2 and 3 use regular 10-tune "A" rolls."

A Roll Scale:
 1 Soft pedal
 2 Sustaining pedal
 3 Play
 4 to 61 C-A, 58 playing notes
62 Extra instrument (such as xylophone or a pipe rank)
63 Rewind
64 Mandolin
65 Shut off
