My Favorite Nickelodeon Coin Pianos
By Don Teach
Coin operated pianos have always been my collecting specialty.
I have had several Seeburg pianos and other brands of pianos.
The Coinola "O" roll machines have always been one of my favorites.
The music they render has usually been excellent and it's one of
the most listenable coin pianos that were ever made. The homemade
machines have usually used the "O" roll with less musical results
than their original counterparts.
The original machines played with more expression and never had
the drums overpower the piano. Nor do the other instruments in
an original machine override the piano, which can always be heard.
I was wondering if there are many coin piano collectors that read
the MMD on a regular basis and what is their favorite coin piano.
My personal two favorites are the Seeburg G and the Coinola X.
It would be hard to choose between the two for me.
