This year we are holding our second Annual Pianola 'Workshop' entitled:-

                               Keeping  your  Pianola  Playing"  

                                Basic Maintenance for your Player.

It is hoped that this will show you all the main components of the player, where they are and enable you to diagnose faults, especially age related faults.

Simple 'maintenance' repairs will be covered,- replacing tubes and patching pneumatics but more importantly advice on when to try and 'maintain' a component and  when to 'give up' and do a complete rebuild of that particular part - or even the whole player if that is required,


Details of supplies needed to do these basic repairs will be given and also suggestions as to where they may be obtained.


For details of this Workshop and all our other meetings in 2015 please see the NWPPA Website at http://www.sites.google.com/site/thenwppa  and follow the menu to contact us either by EMail or Telephone -  addresses/phone Nos. are on the website.(This is so contact details can be kept up to date.) 


Our first Workshop held last year -  'Music roll repair and conservation'   proved very popular with those who attended: 

" We congratulate the NWPPA for organising this useful workshop and especially for David giving his time to impart his wealth of knowledge and also to Hazel for the excellent refreshments and lunch. A grand day out."
