For Sale on the Internet -- annotation by Ann Donoghue

In St. Petersburg, Florida, an apparently untouched Mason & Hamlin
Ampico A.  "5 foot 8 inches long, 1927 model A, in great original
condition but needs to be rebuilt."  $4750

In Germantown, New York, a very nice looking Fischer Ampico grand,
maybe 5 ft. 4 in., circa 1927.  The piano is on its side currently.
The owner sent me pictures; the Ampico looks totally rebuilt.
$1800 or best offer. 

In Amherst, Virginia: a mid-1920s "Opera" piano with Standard Action
player, foot-pump only.  $250 

In Rocky Mount, Virginia: a Straube player piano from the 1920s.
Straube had a well-designed player mechanism and above average pianos.

In East Peoria, Illinois, an A. B. Chase upright player piano, circa
1908.  I spoke to the owner; he is getting older and is downsizing.
The piano pumps very well and A. B. Chase pianos were very high end
instruments, as you know.  This is an 88-note-only "Krell" mechanism
(all contained in the bottom of the piano case), not a combination
65/88-note model.  I think that the owner would bargain on price to
have it go to a good home.  With rolls, $1650.

In Ypsilanti, Michigan, a Musette player piano, _free._  These Musette
players are usually Aeolian spinet players, i.e., full keyboard
versions of the 64-note "Pianola" models.  It could be fun for a senior
residence that wants a small piano or even a group home for seniors who
would have a ball listening to it, even if not able to pump it when
serviced to eliminate leaks.  With rolls, free.

In Minneapolis, Minnesota, _free,_ a rebuilt 1917 Cable "Euphona" Inner
Player, foot pump only.  The owner said the piano pumps nicely, the
piano action might need some attention.  Let's not let this go to the
dump, please!

From 180511: 
For Sale on the Internet -- annotation by David Oppenheim

In Tujunga, California (Los Angeles), an adapter to play MIDI files
at your computer on a Pianocorder solenoid player piano; it replaces
the original Pianocorder cassette tape playback deck.  A lot of folks
probably still have Pianocorders in their collections.  $195

In Fowlerville, Michigan (near Lansing), a huge piano case that once
contained a Seeburg Mortuary Organ.  Maybe someone has a basket case
Seeburg MO that is complete and would like a (almost) new piano and
case for it.  Free!

From 180510: 
For Sale on the Internet -- annotation by David Oppenheim

In Gloucester City, New Jersey, a 1920's Davenport-Treacy upright
player, _free_.  It's a restored late Standard Action pumper, just
renewed on Craigslist.  Original finish, not gouged, with rolls.

In West Hills (Canoga Park), California, a Ragtime West build up
"O" roll piano, and the price is right!  $395

From 180508:
For Sale on the Internet -- annotation by David Oppenheim

In Pine Island, Minnesota, a piano roll storage cabinet in very good
original condition (I confirmed this) plus many player rolls.  The
estate sale begins Thursday, May 10th.

In Fairfield, Connecticut (near Bridgeport): an early 88-note Stroud
Pianola, with stool, bench and 50 rolls.  I shared this with MMD before
but it is now for free.  These Stroud pianos have a wonderful bass!
Odd that it contains a Recordo tracker bar, though.  I'd hate to see
this go to the dump.  Can't someone in NY or CT area save this?

From 180507:
For Sale on the Internet -- annotation by David Oppenheim

In Affton (St. Louis), Missouri, a W. P. Haines & Co. player piano with
bench and rolls.  It seems to be a really nice double-valve Standard
player in well kept condition.  Just trying to keep better instruments
from being hauled off to land fills.   The price is right, too: $500.
