The Player Piano company is the World's Largest Supplier of Materials for Rebuilding and Repairing Antique Player Pianos, Organs, and Coin- operated Musical Instruments
Antique Player Pianos are not as popular as they were 20 years ago but there are still a lot of them around, and many that were repaired then need some work now.
Rebuilding the piano will cost over $2000, and just temporary repairs are expensive ... but how many people realize they might do it themselves?
Durrell Armstrong's company has always made an effort to give personal help and information to the beginner who decides to work on his own piano. Now the company is giving everybody a free book, "Rebuilding the Player Piano" which you can download. We believe the information that follows will be interesting and helpful and will also make it clear why we have selected several items from our catalog for you to examine. They are especially important for the beginner.
