At times, I think that I am probably not very bright. I take free
player pianos, pay $50 to $100 for some of them, spend $150 or more
to have each one of them moved, and I sell most of them for $295.00.
I rent storage for them. I presently have 15,000 square feet in which
to store them and it is nearly full. I have something under 200 pianos,
counting silent (non-player) and grand pianos. I am seriously con-
sidering the 10 others offered here on MMD recently. However, on rare
occasions I am able to sell 5 or 6 at a time to folks in areas of the
country that do not have many pianos to be found, like Washington State,
Florida, south Texas.
I have offered these periodically on MMD and had very few takers. The
folks that call me about them ask if they are untouched, unrestored-at
and almost all of them are. Some folks find it very hard to believe
that they have never been touched or screwed up by another "rebuilder"
but it is true. When moving 6 or more the move last only cost $125 each
to Washington State.
These are still available and now there are more since the last time I
