  • mos 1 tone card list

    Our church may be getting an Allen 301-B to replace our t-15B organ. The man who is selling it is furnishing a lot of tone cards with it, and I was wondering if anyone has a master list of all the MOS-1 tone cards that Allen made (or knows where I can get one). I went to the Allen website, and noticed that some of the sounds weren't listed (e.g. Chrysoglott, Carillon, and others) and I just wanted to see what I may be getting my hands on.

    If you are a member of the Allen Organ Owners Group on yahoo, there is a posting of the original MOS card order form at:http://launch.groups.yahoo.com/group...20Card%20List/

    Allen no longer makes new cards and when they run out of their current inventory, the card is no longer available. I guess they card punch machines wore out.

    If there is a voice you want available on the Allen site, buy it while you can.

      Seems like some enterprising soul could buy up one of each and preserve them for posterity. Punch cards aren't that hard to duplicate.

        They are if no one has a card punch. Type 026, 029, and 042 keypunches cannot be used because binary cards will destroy the print mechanism (and it can't be disabled without disassembly). An 020 keypunch (without the print mechanism) would be excellent, but there are very few of them still working, and they are several thousand dollars apiece.

          Toodles,

          Unfortunately, a useless post for anyone who is not, or who does not want to be part of the Yahoo group. PianOrgan, send me a PM, and I'll try to get you a copy of the list I have (PDF or DOC).

          Mike,

          I am trying. Toodles has also done some work on this, as well as David with a hand punch (the slow way). I have about 2/3 of the inventory listed in my MOS Tone Card list. Working on the other 1/3.

          Way too many organs to list, but I do have 5 Allens:
          • MOS-2 Model 505-B / ADC-4300-DK / ADC-5400 / ADC-6000 (Symphony) / ADC-8000DKC
          • Lowrey Heritage (DSO-1)
          • 11 Pump Organs, 1 Pipe Organ & 7 Pianos

            A few years ago someone listed a keypunch machine for $250 up in Wisconsin, on eBay. At the time I didn't think I wanted to go up there to get it so did not make an offer. Now I wish that I had. There is a guy down in the Houston, TX area who repairs and sells keypunches. Maybe some day....

              I'm sorry if someone doesn't want to join that group, but I do not feel at liberty to repost data from another site.

                I have a list from Allen, but it bears a copyright notice, otherwise I would post it.

                  026 keypunch... boy does that bring back memories. I was able to copy the Allen cards on it... if I did it one column at a time. Never could do it on a 029 and 129.

                    I totally understand.

                      Michael, I definitely want the list, if you can send it to me. I sent you a PM a while back with my regular e-mail. If possible, could I have the PDF form?

                      Thanks

                        I still wonder if it would be possible to make a device that would slip into a card reader and using LEDs, simulate any tone card.

                          I apologize.:'( You caught me in the middle of 2-3 rehearsals/performances, etc. They're over for the next week, so I'll try to provide the information this week.

                          Thanks for the reminder.

                            Check out this link: http://dftscript.blogspot.com/search...max-results=16 -- Kevin has modified his card reader to work with a device that flashes the lamps in a simulation of what would be produced by inserting and removing a card. (The reader also still works normally.) His device is able to input any desired set of values.

                            Kevin and I worked back in early 2010 with my spreadsheet and his input device to help Philip Fillion diagnose a problem with his card reader. I posited a couple of possible problems (dead lamps) and Kevin input the card data as if certain lamps were not working; he was able to make a sound clip of the results and Philip was able to use them to confirm what he was hearing and make repairs.

                              David,
                              I was supposed to give you the data for some tone cards a long time ago but I forgot. Are you still interested? Maybe I could take some pics with my iPhone and email them to you.
