Diagram of Universal Nickelodeon
By John A. Tuttle

Hi All,  One of my customers asked if I would like a diagram of the
nickelodeon manufactured by Universal Piano Co., Culver City, Calif.
I said, "Sure."  What I received will blow you away!  The detail in this
diagram is so good that it could easily be used to convert almost any
88-note player into an 'O' roll nickelodeon.

The man who made the diagram is David McQuaide.  In a subsequent email,
he told me that Play-Rite made the special 5-7 tune rolls that work with
the instrument.  (I sent the diagram/file to Robbie.)

 [ Thanks, John and David, I'll place the file under
 [ "Nickelodeons & Orchestrions" at the MMD technical site,
