Parts Removed From Reproducing Pianos
By David Dewey

Terry Younce posted in 140509 MMDigest, "I have many components of
an Ampico B system that were recently removed from a client's piano.
If you are interested please contact me with your interests."

Augh!!!  People are still taking players out of pianos -- reproducing
players, even!  I guess my curatorial training gets bugged by this,
as I think the history of the instrument should be respected.  It's not
like a non-functioning player system affects the piano's playability,
and it's still there to be restored later!

Okay, rant over.  At least the parts are being offered to others for
their restorations and not going to the dump (which is also happening
to complete pianos; players and non-players; sad times!), so for that
part I am grateful.
