Player Piano Training Videos

Below is a listing of the Training DVDs that are available for purchase at Player-Care. Considering the numerous hours that have gone into their creation, I believe they are reasonably priced. The information in these DVD's is invaluable. Not only do they cover what must be done to properly rebuild a component or system, they also alert the user about the problems they will undoubtedly encounter during the rebuilding process. Also, they explain in great detail how to correct common mistakes and replace parts and materials that are no longer available with superior quality goods. Though the titles of each DVD are relatively self-explanatory, it's my intention to include a brief explanation or listing of the contents of each DVD. Unless otherwise noted, each DVD is approximately one hour in length.

Known by many as 'The Pump That Thumps', this training DVD explains in great detail the many reasons why the pump often thumps after being restored, and it tells the user how to eliminate all of the possible problems that would create a thump.

... How The AMPICO Really Works: $18.75
Starting with the various coding techniques used in Ampico rolls, and going through the Ampico Reproducing System on a bench setup, this DVD explains how the Ampico system really works. It also debunks the claims concerning the poor musical quality of the "B" rolls when played on "A" systems, and visa versa. The information presented is relatively complex, and you'll learn something new every time you view this DVD. If you ever wanted to get a handle on the operating principles of the Ampico system, this is the DVD for you!

... Orchestrion Builder's Manual and Pneumatics Handbook: $23.75
(CD Version - in PDF Format)
The most comprehensive book about valves and pneumatics ever written. Unlike most books that tell you what 'To Do', this book also tells you what 'Not To Do', and then goes on to explain why! Written by Craig Brougher, noted author and master craftsman, this book is a must for anyone who is considering building or rebuilding a pneumatic operated device of any kind or type. This 238-page 3-ring binder version is loaded with well over a hundred illustrations and every topic is explained in great detail. No stone is left unturned. I highly recommend this reference, and have a copy that is quite worn!

... Standard Double-Valve Action Service Manual: $16.95 (Only available on CD!)
Produced in 1917, this 36-page reference has the finest gray-scale graphics I've ever had the pleasure to view. They are so good that I decided NOT to have the reference printed on paper. Instead, each page was scanned at a resolution of 150 DPI and a variety of electronic files were produced. This reference is ONLY available on a CD that I produced. It contains all of the original scanned files as well as an Adobe Acrobat (.pdf) file and a huge Word Perfect (.wpd) file. The beauty of these program files is that each page can be magnified to over 200% without losing the clarity of the graphics, making it possible to easily see details that are often difficult to see with the naked eye in the original paper manual. Also, through the magic of 'image mapping', you can access super-high resolution images by clicking on any image inside a web page. These images were scanned at 300 DPI, and they are twice as clear as the images in the individual pages. All files can also be accessed individually in 'My Computer'. Or the pages can be viewed as web pages.The CD is designed to automatically open your default web browser when the CD is put into your CD Drive. Lastly, if the web browser is connected to the Internet, you can also access everything at Player-Care from the links on the main default web page. Shipping within the US is $6.95. (An excellent companion to this CD is the 'Standard Action Q & A' reference -just below.)
