Sega "Grand Pianist" Scale Model Player Piano
By Jim Katz
I finally found a good discount and reliable supplier and got my hands
on one of these. It is superb. A true miniature in 1/6 scale -- you
can not tell this from the prototype Yamaha 6-foot grand from a photo.
All the important details are right. The hand-playable keyboard
moving correctly with the performances of 100 stored pieces completes
the illusion. Certainly the best small mechanical music item to come
out for a long time. Email me if you want details.
