K someone I know about 6 hours from me has a Duo-Art Model AR
1927 I think, piano is in rough shape, but complete ( will get pics up later
as I have to learn how to use page etc, and image-shack) I haven't seen the piano, but it has a rank of electromagnets and power cord connections, that say "feed wire" and " organ Connection" so I'm guessing it was made to play along with a aeolian pipe organ ? It's very unusual nevertheless, also it's a 7 foot piano, isn't that kind of large for a duo art? again i promise some pics soon,

The Steinway AR was the largest 'standard' Duo-Art model in the US, I believe - there are a number of the about. Very nice too! In the US a small number of full concert grands were made as well, whicle in the UK a small batch of Steinway B Duo-Arts were made, the next size up from the A.

The magnet bank might relate to a concertola installation, but the references to organ connections are completely new to me. I don't recall encountering an Aeolian organ with a piano attached. There must be experts in these things who can help.

Grand piano's are used in theater organs sometimes. why not use a Steinway duo-art for that? maybe it wasn't an Aeolian organ but another brand? I don't know any useful information either..

-- Phonola 73-note vorsetzer (in restoration) -- Steck pedal electric Duo-Art (in restoration too) -- Citro├źn Dyane (drives great, but needs restoration too)
