Some are still to be found out there

This England - - Post Box -

Pianola rolls are in plen­ti­ful sup­ply and pianola pi­anos can still be found, but be­ing about one and a half times the size of an av­er­age up­right pi­ano, they are less wel­come ad­di­tions to the mod­ern home.

ebay of­ten has them in non­work­ing or­der for give-away prices, but there are at least six re­pair­ers who are ca­pa­ble of full restora­tions. Me­chan­i­cal mu­sic mu­se­ums reg­u­larly demon­strate per­for­mances on them and their sounds are avail­able on CDS.

A roll in play­ing po­si­tion in the pianola’s spool­box.
