Question about Music

1 Answer

My kimball electromatic player piano won't automatically rewind, or even stop, when it reaches the end of the roll. It just keeps going and pulls the tape off the roller. If I press the stop button, it behaves properly. I don't know how the mechanism recognizes the end of the roll so it should stop and rewind. thnaks

Look near the end of the roll for a hole or other trigger method that triggers the stop. It could be a hole in just one column or possibly a heavy mark on the roll. The later would be sensed by an optical pickup which MIGHT have a lamp burned out. From the site:

http://www.player-care.com/system55.html

It appears that vacumn via holes triggers the stop and the rewind by "pouch" switches. I suspect those swithches trigger and lock the relays in the same pix at the site.

First thing to do is to see if those switches actuate at the end of the roll so as to stop and then rewind.

I have and antique Kimball serial number is 197287 trying to find out the value of it


Kimball piano values vary based on age and condition; as of 2015, many uprights sell for $10,000 or more. Kimball is a well-known brand, and several of its antique pianos are considered highly collectible.
The Kimball Piano Company, based in Chicago, was one of the largest piano manufacturers in the world. At the turn of the century, Kimball built approximately 20,000 pianos annually. Kimball produced pianos under different brand names such as Hinze, Dunbar, Whitney and Harrison. Styles were influenced by Victorian, Greek Revival and Arts and Crafts architecture, and upright models were often available as player pianos. Kimball was sold to the Jasper American Corporation in 1959, and its pianos were discontinued in 1996.

I have a Kimball piano, Serial # 403018. I don't know the age. Looking to see how much it might be worth.


The value will depend more on cosmetic and physical condition than the age (within reason), It's also dependent on your particular market. c/intact your local piano store to get a idea what comparable pianos are selling for.
