Book "The Disc Musical Box" by Kevin McElhone
By Craig Smith

Hi Kevin,  A couple weeks ago a friend and I needed to know the tuning
of a Otto Capital Cuff box but couldn't find it anywhere.  The comb
had lead disease and it was way out of tune.  I could figure out much
of it graphically but there were a few notes that were in question.

None of the books had a scale so I asked Nancy Fratti if she knew the
scale.  She immediately advised me to look in your book, "The Disc
Musical Box", which I had purchased from her a few months ago.

There it was -- just what I needed!  The time spent trying to figure
out just one scale would almost pay for the book.  Thanks for your help.

By the way, there is one note that you have as a question mark.  That
note should be a C-sharp.
