Universal Nickelodeon
Universal Nickelodeon Diagram
drawn by David McQuaide, forwarded by John A. Tuttle (110218 MMDigest)

Hi All,  One of my customers asked if I would like a diagram of the nickelodeon manufactured by Universal Piano Co., Culver City, Calif.  I said, "Sure."  What I received will blow you away!  The detail in this diagram is so good that it could easily be used to convert almost any 88-note player into an 'O' roll nickelodeon.

The man who made the diagram is David McQuaide.  In a subsequent email, he told me that Play-Rite made the special 5-7 tune rolls that work with the instrument.
