Hardman & Peck Autotone Soloelle Player System
By John A. Tuttle

Hi All,  A gentleman in Australia sent me some pictures of a Hardman
& Peck Autotone Soloelle player system.  I have no information about
the system, but I find a few things about it quite interesting, namely
the tracker bar.  It's unlike any I've ever seen before.

Also, the method used to achieve expression.  It appears that
expression pneumatics move the hammer rail specific distances.

Any information will be appreciated.  I plan to make up a web page about
the system.
