Reproducing Piano

Any links below to external sites are offered for your convenience but the Musical Museum neither endorses the sites nor vouches for the accuracy of their content.

A piano capable of playing reproducing rolls on which the expression which characterises the performance of a named pianist has been encoded. Compare with a player piano, on which the piano roll has the notes encoded, but the person playing the roll must introduce the expression by controlling the dynamic and the tempo using the piano's controls. Several manufacturers developed competing and incompatible systems.
