Sorry to hear of another closure, although I must admit it is many years since I have visited Paul Corin's Museum.
However I BELIEVE (possibly wrongly) that Paul had the piano part (only) of one of the recording pianos used at Hayes - I am told that it had a 'huge' multicore cable coming from under the keyboard. It (almost certainly) came from Gordon Isles (Artona) sale so it may not have been totally original - although quite a few of the Artona bits were original.
The piano (an upright) didn't look anything special, but if it was 'original' it may be worth someone documenting it properly before it disappers.
Is there any one who can confirm:-
1) Is the 'Recording piano' still there.(or, if not, possibly where it is)
2) Is it original - or had it been 'Altered' by Gordon Isles
3) Is it possible to document it properly - Contacts, Circuit Diag etc.
If yes to any of these is there anyone in the area prepared to have a look at it as I'm too far away.
Play it again Sam.
