Jesse Peter Rogers
Player System
Invented, 1919
Player Piano Pictures and Patents

As of March 2, 2017, we are just beginning to collect data about the above named player action. All we have at this point are some pictures of the action and one patent. The pictures were contributed by Richard Moxon. The stack was invented in 1919 by Jesse Peter Rogers. This is an 88-note player stack. The rest of the components in the player system came from other manufacturers. Update 3/2/17: The air motor is the same as the one in the Ampico A Grand Reproducing Piano. Obviously, the mounting brackets are different and the drive gear is on the left instead of the right.

Just below is the only patent issued for this system.

The piano, into which this stack was installed, was manufactured by Henry Johnson. See data below. The serial number of the piano (see below) indicates that the piano was made in late 1925.

Below are the pictures we have so far.

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.
