Seek Pianocorder Repair Technicians
By Mark Fontana

I receive several inquiries per week seeking assistance with
Superscope Marantz Pianocorder systems, generally from owners in
the U.S., Canada, and Australia.

Each year, as the weather turns colder, there is a wave of email
along the lines of "Need your help to get Mom's old Pianocorder
playing again for the holidays!"  In some cases, I can guide the
more tech-savvy owners by phone or email, but frequently, it would
be better to have a local technician familiar with solenoid-based
player systems pay a visit.

I am hoping to expand my list of Pianocorder technicians posted
at  If any MMD readers
would like to be listed there (at no charge) as a provider of
Pianocorder service, please contact me.

While having hands-on Pianocorder experience would be great, the
system is similar enough to more modern solenoid-based player
systems (like PianoDisc) that anyone familiar with those could pick
up what they need to know from the service documentation I've posted
online at  I'll be happy to provide
whatever assistance I can by phone or email.

As for Pianocorder parts, they are still available through Randy Cox
and Nick Morris, who are already listed on that technicians page.

I continue to offer upgrade kits enabling control of the Pianocorder
from laptops and mobile devices, eliminating the cassette deck and
tapes that have become the most common points of failure.  See
