FS: Reproducing Pianos
By George Veveris

Greetings:  I'm a piano technician.  Some years ago I acquired a Mason &
Hamlin Ampico, serial #RA 36231.  It is in original condition, has good
soundboard and bridges, and needs to be rebuilt.  I also have small Mason
& Risch upright with a Welte reproducing system, also original condition
(needs total rebuild), and a Schulz Recordo - the case is refinished, and
the piano itself is in good working order; the expression system needs to
be rebuilt.

Would be interested in knowing approximate values as-is and rebuilt for
all three pianos, and would appreciate your opinion or any price guides
you might be able to suggest.

Do you know of any web sites or publications where I could locate
potential buyers?  I enjoy your web site, it's very informative.
Unfortunately I will probably not have the time to rebuilt all of
these pianos myself, so any information you can give me will be greatly
appreciated.  I also have other Duo-Art foot-pumpers.  Thanks again!

Regards, George Veveris
