What is a Themodist?
Recently, a customer posed a question to the Mechanical Music Digest regarding her Themodist player piano. She was very curious to find out exactly what the Themodist does and where it is located in the piano. Her desire is to rebuild the mechanism so that she can enjoy all the features the machine has to offer.
Her questions were answered the very next day by two of MMD's members and contributing authors, Dan Wilson and Richard Vance. Their responses were so informative that I asked them if I could post the articles at Player-Care. Both gentlemen kindly agreed.
