people. The piano and player piano are becom

want a piano.
You have perhaps hesitated to give your home
a piano, as you did not feel "able to pay the price
for a good one, and did not want to purchase the
cheap ones so extensively advertised. So you are
one of those who will be interested in getting a
genuine piano or player at the price of a cheap one.
We and the manufacturers guarantee every
piano that we sell to be a better piano than you
can get at most places for from seventy-five to one
