Rachmaninoff "Star Spangled Banner" Ampico 57282
By Vincent Morgan

> looking for a copy ... with Ampico "B" coding.

Ampico roll No. 57282, "Star Spangled Banner", played by Sergei
Rachmaninoff, is readily available from Keystone Music Roll Company,
P.O. Box 650, Bethlehem, PA 18016.

I talked to Ken Caswell and he asked me if the Keystone roll has
expression coding for Ampico B.  I just checked by playing my copy
on my piano and it is an "A" roll.  Ken says that he has an original
box that states that the roll is a "B" roll, but the roll inside is
actually an "A" coded roll.

Ken doesn't have a computer and the space for messages on his phone
is extremely short.  He says that his answering machine is so old
that it runs on steam!
