Kevin Meayers started his business manufacturing perforated cardboard music from his own specially arranged and marked patterns. This continues today as part of our associate company, A. Ruth & Sohn Ltd.
A regular appointment is held at the Elztalmuseum, Waldkirch, where during the organ festival Kevin operates and describes the function of the music making machinery in the museum.
New repertoire is constantly being added. The library now exceeds 15,000 titles and includes the master pattern archive from A. Ruth & Sohn, Waldkirch / H. Voigt Orgelbau, Frankfurt. Some of the music markers included are; Adolf Ruth I, Adolf Ruth II, Rudolf Weisser, Gustav Bruder, Alfred Bruder, Wilhelm Mayer, Marcel van Boxtel, Carl Frei Snr., Sophie Voigt, Giuseppe Bacigalupo & Kevin Meayers.
In addition to the above, we are also able to supply music from the pattern archives of Gustav Bruder / Carl Frei, Germany and Marcel van Boxtel, The Netherlands.
We produce our own blank cardboard books in the three most common fold types. The board is 0.50mm thick and when folded and glued produces a finished thickness of +/- 1.00mm. This gives a strong and durable finished product which perforates neatly and suits both key and keyless instruments. Blank books can be supplied to your specification. All finished music is coated with shellac to strengthen the card and provide lubrication for the keys or mouthpiece. Music can be manufactured for any scale.
Best quality papers are used for our rolls and spools are made to factory specifications in house. Just like perforated cardboard music, rolls can be supplied and perforated for any scale. As well as bespoke rolls with titles to your request we also hold stock for all Gebr. Bruder, Gebr. Weber, Wilhelm Bruder Söhne, Bacigalupo, A. Ruth & Sohn, H. Voigt, Welte, and Imhof & Mukle roll playing instruments. In addition to the above we also produce arrangements and hold stock for various piano roll systems.
