Those who enjoyed Joseph Fox’s article “Day of the Player Piano” might like to know about AMICA, or the Automatic Musical Instrument Collectors Association, which is an organization founded in 1963 comprising approximately 1,350 collectors of player pianos and countless other automated musical instruments. Its members search for player pianos and other old instruments (almost every musical instrument known to man has been automated in some way), faithfully restore them, preserve and exhibit these amazing mechanical devices of yesteryear, and seek to develop historical background such as that Joseph Fox presented in his excellent article.

We hope you enjoy our work.
