Unknown Player Action in Haddorff Piano
by John A. Tuttle (040521 MMDigest)

Hi All,  I need your help in identifying a player action in a Clarendon piano which was manufactured by Haddorff around 1917.  According to my references, Clarendon only used the Amphion, the Pratt-Read, the American, or the Standard mechanisms in their players.  However, the mechanism in the pictures does not appear to be any of those systems.

I have requested that the owner send me a picture of the backside of the stack.  Hopefully, it will shed a little more light on the matter.

Thanks in advance for any help you may provide.
