Seek Control Levers for Duo-Art Grand
By Mike Walter

I'm rebuilding a Weber Duo-Art grand piano that has had the player
mechanism out of the piano for a number of years.  Over the intervening
years three of the levers in front of the keyboard have disappeared
and I am looking for replacement parts.

I believe that the piano is around a 1926 or '27 model.  It is an
80-note stack with round valve plates.  The levers are of brass and
are secured by set screws to metal rods that travel over the top of
the stack to the mechanism behind the stack.  The levers, I believe,
control "Motor", "Play/Rewind" and "Soft/Normal/Dance".  If anyone has
any spare levers for sale, I would greatly appreciate the assistance.

Thanks very much,
Mike Walter
