Melville Clark Solo Apollo
Player Piano System

Regarding the under-keyboard stacks for the Solo Apollo.  The keys
for these 55 notes are actually about a half inch longer than the other
keys, with a tab on the very back end.  This tab sticks out beyond the
back of the keybed.  The stack is mounted directly under the keybed
and the pneumatics look just like an inverted stack from above the
keyboard.  The wires with little wooden felt-tipped buttons just push
up on the back end of the key, just like in a regular player grand.

I have piano #14101 which is complete and intact.  Piano #14075 has
the keys with the tabs, and the bellows nipples the wide tracker bar
and the spool box, etc., for the Solo system, but it was long ago
removed.

Piano #15239 is exactly the same thing, set up for the under-keyboard
Solo stack.  All the Solo components there, but the actual system is
missing.

Since "Player-Care" is an internet business, I prefer that we correspond via E-Mail (click here to fill out the 'Request Form'). However, if I'm not in the middle of some other activity, you can reach me at 732-840-8787. But please understand that during the hours from 8AM-5PM EST (Mon-Sat), I'm generally quite busy. So, I probably won't answer the phone. If you get the answering machine, please leave a detailed message stating the reason for your call. Also, repeat your name and phone number clearly and distinctly. By necessity, I prioritize everything in my life. And, if you call and just leave your name and number, and ask me to call you back, it might be a day or two before I return your call. Why? Because I don't know why you want me to call and I might not be prepared to assist you in an effective and efficient manner. If you leave me an E-Mail address (which I prefer), spell it out phonetically. The more you do to help me, the more I can help you in return. Don't rush. You have four minutes to record your message.
