Loc: portland, ore.
I am currently restoring an 88 note Grotrian Steinweg HUPFELD PHONOLA. Somebody got to the player mech. and tried to "customize" it. I would like to return it to original condition. The main thing I need is a Tubing Diagram. Can anyone help? Ken Marts, 503-843-4061,

Go to Mechanical Music Digest mmd@foxtail.com and check their Archives under 'H', then Hupfield.
I probably could find a tracker-bar scale if that is any help.

From what I have been able to determine so far Hupfeld 'Phonolas', without any qualifying prefixes or suffixes, were mostly straight players, 73-note up to about 1908, 88-note afterwards. An exception was some that had an expression device based on the Aeolian 'Themodist'. The Duo- and Tri-Phonola were entirely different.
