Seek Test Roll for Oreste Orchestrion
By John A. Tuttle

Hi All,  Here's an update about the 'Oreste' orchestrion.  Perhaps
a 'do-over' is in order. I received some more information from the
owner about the machine.  Here's what he wrote:

  "Orchestrion Jazzband, made in France in 1930 by C. Souribes from
  Contrexéville, Vosges.  It is an Oreste type of music instrument
  I.E Music tools made by Oreste."

I've put together a webpage with all the information I now have.

Like I said before, the owner is interested in finding out the scale
design, and he would also like to find a test roll.
