Pneumatics face forward and engage with the piano action through rocking levers mounted under the stack. A double valve system was used that was quite similiar to the Standard action. The pneumatic air motor was the five-point type. There was only one equalizer (or reservoir bellow). In front of the left foot pump bellows is a governor for expression, in addition to the governor for the air motor on the opposite side. There was no automatic tracking device. Instead, it had only a finger lever for tracking adjustments and transposition.

There is nothing particularly difficult about restoring this action. All of the measurements needed are quite commonplace with respect to player pianos. If necessary, see the Standard Action for specifications.

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.
