MTha A. B. Chaae is the sovereiirn among PIANO

players and gone far in advance of older and highly adver
tised inferior makes. '
It U different - , v
THE A. B. CHASE is unlike other players.' Its sys
tem is different It is more easily operated and produces
better results than other players. It is different In ap
pearance. With the A. B. CHASE you sit in a restful
position in an "easy" chair and enjoy the music. It is
different in that the mechanism is all below the keyboard
and the music roll is near the expression levers, enabling .
"the operator to watch the roll and give perfect expression
to the music Don't pay a big price for an old-fashioned'
player that has not passed the A. B. C stage, when yon .
can Just as well own THE BEST, the A. B. CHASE." u
