What Kind of Music Do You Prefer?
Unless you have listened to the ANGELUS PLAYER PIANOS and have heard
their marvelous rendition of vour favorite melodies, be they the classics of Chopin,
Beethoven, Schubert or Mozart, or the more simple and tuneful numbers of your
childhood, "Old Black Joe," "Bonnie Sweet Bessie," "Massa's in the Cold, Cold
Ground," you are yet incapable of judging just what a truly artistic Player Piano
is, just what it should do.
The Ludwig-Angelus Piano
combines the beautiful tone
of the most popular of all
medium-priced pianos with
the most perfect piano play
ing mechanism ever invented. There is no jumble of melody in the Angelus. In
stead, every note of the melody stands out -with the distinctness and clearness of
skilled hand playing. Best of all, it requires no effort on your part to play it beauti
fully the MELODAXT separates melody and harmony, while just the touch of one
finger on the PHRASING LEVER imparts your own individuality to every number
played. The Ludwig-Angelus is medium priced and is sold on easy payments.
