FS: Player Pianos, Rolls & Tools in Oklahoma
By Wayne Sutter

My father, Mel Sutter, had a passion for player pianos.  He was
a master player technician with over 60 years of experience.  He is
gravely ill and will very soon not be with us.  We are tasked with
dealing with the bounty of his life's work.

He has about 65 pianos of every brand and type: warehouses full of
parts and over 12,000 rolls for every make and model -- literally
buildings full of items.  We have expression pianos and regular
players; uprights, spinets and four grand pianos (player, of course).

There are several organs including at least one player organ with
rolls.  Some are fancy, some are plain, but he knew what each one was
and only kept quality.  We also have every specialized tool imaginable
including two key-trimming machines.

It will be a little while before we can get it all under control
because we will care for him first and then deal with the things.
We are looking to help these items find others with a similar passion.
We are not trying to get rich and will consider any and all offers.
Our goal is to honor our father by sharing his legacy.  Please email
me and we will send more information when we have it available.
