Nickelodeon Piano Co. of Huntsville, Alabama
By Howard Wyman

Ken Marts is looking for information on his nickelodeons [130223 MMD].
They can't be playing style "A" rolls since that scale does not have
provisions for the percussion instruments he mentions.  I just rebuilt
one that was made by the Nickelodeon Piano Co. of Huntsville, Alabama,
which sounds similar with respect to the leaded glass.  It used a style
"O" roll which would enable it to play all those extra instruments.
Ken's pianos probably use either the "O" roll or a "G" roll.
