Technical Articles
from the
Tuners' Journal
(Circa 1927)

Courtesy of Larry Lobel


Below is the listing of a number of articles written by Wilberton Gould that appeared in the Tuners' Journal back in the late 1920's. Scanned images of the original articles were sent to Player-Care by Larry Lobel in September 2005. Through the magic of OCR (ocular character recognition) software, the images were converted to text files and later edited and formatted into web pages. It is believed that the information contained in these articles is worthy of being archived for future generations, and our personal thanks go out to Larry for considering Player-Care an appropriate place to house these articles. Upon request, the original images will be sent to any interested party.
