I have a maestovox, or at least most of one, which I found on a tip. It was basically functional,
completely out of tune, and highly dangerous!
Just got it out of the cupboard to start to put it together, abd did a quick search in case anyone has circuit diagrams, as the vibrato isn't working, and i was hoping that someone may have done the hard work of decoding the values of the keyboard resistors, as bulk carbon drift somewhat.

The only info I had was a picture from the web of someone playing one in a dance band of 1952ish. if you know what the lid looks like and have any more pictures, they would be more than welcome.

oh and my speaker is different, it's a goodmans eliptical.

Best wishes,

Nigel

The maestrovox was designed and bullt by my wife's late grandfather Victor Ward. Sadly, we do not have one, although we keep searching, we did see the one on ebay and pointed out that it was incomplete to the seller and buyer. We do have lots of paperwork on it including brochures, news cuttings and photo's etc. It was used and promoted by the pianist Stanley Black, can't remember the exact date but it was in the 1950's. Many were shipped to the USA and Canada. If anyone ever wants to sell a complete version, please get in touch as my wife would love to have one. She is a pro musician and keyboard player. If anyone wants more precise information I can dig the box out of the loft with all the papers etc in.

In the late 1970's ,there used to be a Maestrovox complete in the Victoria Pub in the Surbiton High street;it used to sit on the grand Piano.
I don't know if it is still there.
However ,I am an electronic engineer and now live in my native Aberdeen.
About 3 years ago I repaired one which was in excellent condition and complete, for a guy who collected such things .He also bought and sold and tuned pianos and traded under the name of NETHERDALE pianos.This is not far from the township of Rothienorman in Aberdeenshire.
As I said ,it was three years ago and I no longer have his number and it never was listed in the directory.
He also had at least three Hammonds and a selection of electrmechanical instruments from the 1950s,60s etc.
If any one is really interested contact me and I'll make some mor enquiries.
