I have a old oak telephone from the old Conneticut house that has two bell
like things on it. I remember it did work at one time and the crank still
goes. We even have one of those old stick phones and other old phones in
the attic. They have bells on them that look just like clarinet bells. I
can see if I can get up there and get the box down, snip off the bells.
"You Take The High Notes" http://helius.carroll.com/p/leo_g/ There is a
difference between "dealers" and musicians that love not only the sound of
music but the tools which make it possible for people to play music. It's
important to set things free so they may ultimately find their way to
their intended parties. I am especially interested in Musical Instrument
History and technical data. Please email me with interesting links. Thank
