WHAT MAKES the DIFFERENCE
Why i"o y tt charg n much mor tor a Plaver linn than for
piano-au(.W I. r your Chsait I'lsyer ami only ll&O.CK) fur yuur Cheap
est I'lamiT asked one of our friend thai other day. It occurred to ua
that ether nitifhl have the aam thought, o w wlah to explain.
To bogn with our WW 00 piano w are convinced will ttand up per
fectly whn umkI aa piano la used In lh avarsg noma, but w ar not
aure that It would aland up satisfactorily If aulJurtd to the hard usage
f a player. It la estimated that a modern player piano la played 1 from
ten to twenty limea aa much aa a straight piano in the averK home,
and because of ihla and the fact that a player playa the dlllicult ar
ran(emenU with their crushing affect aa readily aa the moat simple
tort of niuale, a player piano haa to be built well in order to etend up
ml atay In tune.
Then, the player arll.m uaod In our Bhnle Tlayer at .H5.00 ia an up-tn-the
niinuU, free from troul.ie action- combination we know will
pleaae and one which will not cause aa tnmltle aa time C oe on. A rheap
player action Inatalled In our 1100,00 piano could eaally be had for 9275.0U,
but we could not recommend it.
A piano or player la an investment of yeara, a lifetime Investment
In many eeaea, therefore we alwaya recommond the beat the euatomer
feela able In buy. There ia full value for every additional dollar you
have to pay for rur llalnva liroa., Haielton llroa, or for the Ulurioua
Old Chickering. In any eaae, aee ua and our planoa and Jilayei before
you buy. We will aave you money.
