Estey Player Pipe Organ Rolls
List of Estey Player Pipe Organ Rolls
by John Dousmanis

Hi All, My name is John Dousmanis, and I am a member of AMICA, MBSI, and the Estey Organ Museum.  Fellow collector and enthusiast, Bill Klinger, has been scanning Estey pipe organ rolls (both the earlier rolls and the later semi-automatic), and has been converting them to MIDI files.  I have sent him about 520 rolls from my collection that have already been scanned.  I can send a list of all the titles.

Does anyone have any Estey rolls that they could make available for scanning?  Are there other owners of Estey rolls that might join in our effort to locate all Estey rolls and have them scanned into MIDI files?

When we have most or all of the Estey titles completed we plan to start scanning the Aeolian 116-note pipe organ rolls and then the 58-note Aeolian Grand/Orchestrelle rolls.  There are others who have scanned 176 note Aeolian Duo-Art pipe organ rolls.  I've also have had a number of Welte pipe organ rolls scanned.

By scanning these rolls, we are making them available as MIDI files.  And in doing so we preserve their musical information in digital form, as the perforated paper rolls will not last much longer.  As MIDI files, future generations will be able to glimpse into the past and hear this music of a bygone era.  If you have any questions please contact me.

Sincerely,

John Dousmanis

* As noted, many rolls have severe damage, almost always within 3 or 4 feet 
of the core.  We did have a number of duplicates and in one case the duplicate 
was less damaged than the first copy scanned and was able to be completed.  
Some of the other duplicates were as bad as the first trial and one of the 
rolls, both copies were just shreds at the end.  

These rolls are 125 notes, 12-to-the-inch.  Though slightly wider than the 
Aeolian rolls, the 116 music holes are in the same position on both roll styles.

This list is posted in hopes that we might get offers to scan the other half 
of the library or fill in the missing titles from some other sources. 

The files are saved in MIDI Type 1 format with the Great Manual as track 1, 
the Swell Manual as track 2 and the combinations and shades on channel 10.
