Take a look at these two photographs. The unit on the left is an example of the typical
construction of a competitor's vacuum box. Made from at least three different types
of wood, it has the appearance of being made of 'scrap' wood. The seams are sloppy
and show poor alignment.
The photo on the right shows the Bergytone BT-002 box construction. Rabbet joints
and precision cuts make the seams nearly invisible. The sturdy construction and air-tightness
is evident. This product has a professional look that you can be proud to install.
In some pianos, to add on an auxiliary pneumatic such as re-roll or mandolin rail,
more than one vacuum line is needed.
Rather than drill port holes in the reservoir, it is often easier to do this at the
pump itself. This keeps the originality of the foot pumps and reservoirs intact.
It can also allow for cleaner hose routing. This photo shows an additional port
connected to a rewind pneumatic system.
The Bergytone pump is unique in that multiple ports can be added to the top (or even
the upper sides) if required. By design, the BT-002 has an acoustical dampening chamber
above the motor. It is this chamber that allows holes to be drilled and port fittings
to be glued in. All of the other suction boxes on the market today do not allow this
due to the fact that the motor is placed all the way to the top of the box. Drilling
into their boxes would drill right into the motor!. If you would like to see the
6 page installation manual, drop me a line and I’ll email a copy to you.

What others are saying:
I thought I would email you and tell you that I installed the Bergytone BT-002 yesterday,
and my 1921 Beckwith player piano is making beautiful music without any foot pumping.
I really like this way of making music!! Everything installed without any problems.
I would say it took around 2 hours. It was not difficult at all!! I placed the
pump in a nice cabinet which sits next to the player piano. I had plenty of tube
and wiring. Thank for this wonderful item. I have enclosed a picture of the cabinet
where the pump is located and the player piano. I am really enjoying this instrument!!

Eric, very very pleased with the suction box. Nice job on the quality, refreshingly
quiet motor, and thoughtfully written instructions.

by the promised date. Andy, Santa Fe, NM
All I can say is that you kick some serious ass! You are absolutely awesome! The
quality of the work is phenomenal. Much, Much, Much better than I anticipated. I
knew you were good, but I didn't quite know what to expect. I will recommend you
to everybody I ever meet that needs one of these. I am also going to give high reviews
on the various forums that I belong to. Excellent product & service! In short, I
just want to say thank you. Derick, East Freetown, MA
