I have been engaged to assist in selling a number of reproducing pianos
and a Welte Philharmonic pipe organ, along with other player pipe organ
and piano related materials.
The pianos include a restored 5'8" Knabe art case Ampico A, a restored
5'4" Haines Bros. Ampico A, a 6'+ Welte Mignon Original that has had
extensive restoration but needs work, an unrestored Weber Duo-Art
upright and a Stroud Duo-Art upright with the player restored but
piano original. Also a Melville Clark upright player that plays five
different types of rolls.
In addition there is a 2/10 Welte Philharmonic player pipe organ and an
Aeolian organ originally from the Max Fleischmann residence that had
been moved to a church. The original Aeolian player console had been
replaced with a church style console.
There are several thousand rolls including Welte Licensee, Ampico,
Duo-Art, Aeolian 116-note and 176-note organ rolls, 88-note player
rolls and Welte Philharmonic rolls.
Everything is stored in a shop/warehouse in Gardena, California. I can
send some photos of the instruments and would be happy to discuss the
situation and provide additional information on the instruments by
