Frank Adams' Automatic Music Roll Co.
By LynnLav@

Hi.  Thank you for all the helpful info on your site!  I'm trying to
find out when Automatic Music Roll Co. stopped making Duo-Art recuts.
The box for my latest such purchase, while vintage, has a zip code so
I know they were making rolls in or after 1963 when zip codes were

I would love to learn the history of Duo-Art roll making as I think
they were originally Ampico.  I just wonder why I have rolls that say
Duo-Art yet have other manufacturer names on them such as QRS and
Automatic Music Roll Co.  Did these companies perhaps make rolls for
the company Duo-Art?  I would love to have a timeline if such exists.
Thanks for any information you might be able to share.

 [ "Automatic Music Roll Co." (AMR) was a brand name used by Frank
 [ Adams of Seattle for his recut piano rolls.  Many years before,
 [ the brand name appeared on music rolls for Seeburg orchestrions.
 [ After a brand name registration expires the brand name may be
 [ used by someone else.  -- Robbie
