Zeitter & Winklemann Player Piano
w/C. Pude & Co (Berlin) mechanism

A gentleman from Moscow, Russia, who only identified himself as Sergie, sent me the pictures below along with the following information.

I decided to sent some photos of my German-made 1914 Zeitter & Winkelmann player piano and it's mechanism for your site. I think such unknown mechanism may be interesting for player piano owners... It's 88-note C. Pude & Co (Berlin) mechanism with foot-pumped action.
Tubes which "go" from trackerbar to valves made by metal. 88 valves in 2 lines. (Bellows made from white paper, some bellows was repaired by other black material. Big bellows such as air-motor, pedals etc. made from cloth. Air-motor includes 3 bellows. Keys are not pressed when pianola playing.
Player pianos in Russia are very rare things and here impossible to find information about it... Now piano is taken to pieces because it needs in transportation. Player mechanism in non-working condition - some tubes broken.

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.
