Illustration from Cremona Style 10 piano #11877. This is an example of a Marquette Piano Company (Cremona) tune selector enabled spoolbox that is located above the keyboard, instead of underneath where it is more commonly found. This "special" roll mechanism was equipped with a tune selector knob (surrounded by a numbered dial) which, when turned to a specific number, would cause the music roll to fast forward or rewind so as to then stop and play the selected tune.
