My Arrangements for Small Carousel Organs
At this point my website probably contains as many free download
MIDI files in 20er Carl Frei ("Raffin"/John Smith) format as any page

The WurliTzer Collection
To support the new MIDI interface for the OSI Strasse Orgel I have edited
over 50 tunes scanned from Wurlitzer 125 and 150 scale rolls. Click here for information on those

I have decided that some of my work has risen to the point
where I should receive something in return for hours of work on a
I have made arrangements to have Mel Wright
(internationally known arranger and high-speed punch builder) provide
as rolls punched on

concert band as arranged by E. Beyer in 1886. The band score was
obtained from the Royalton (Ohio) Community Band website http://www.bandmusicpdf.org as

other music. He usually punches a roll the same day he receives an
order and ships promptly by air mail. He accepts most credit cards via
PayPal. You pay Mel, and he'll punch some music for me. Contact me for
