MAKING AN ORCHESTRION
We have a few player pianos that have not been restored and decided to make an orchestrion out of one of them. First we removed the player parts and fixed whatever problems existed with the piano action.
The next step was to rebuild the stack, eliminating the pneumatics not needed for the 66 playing notes to be controlled by the O Roll we had decided to use and substituting connections for additional functions.
