#blackHistoryMonth #inventor Joseph Dickinson
Joseph Dickinson (also spelt Joseph Hunter Dickinson) of Cranford, New Jersey invented several improvements to different musical instruments. In particular, Joseph Dickinson invented an improvement to player pianos (patent below) that provided better actuation - the loudness or softness of the key strikes; and could play the sheet music from any point in the song.
I’m trying to see his involvement with creating the record needle, or rather the horn used for record players. You know I love this one being #teamMUSIC.
