A Cure For Loud Piano Music
By Bill Finch

For all of those who feel that your piano music is too loud, what you really need in the house is a good strong band organ.

When I demonstrate my Wurlitzer 145b for unsuspecting guests I always tell them that it was made in 1929 and is getting old and if they listen carefully they will be able to hear it. I flick the switch and the response is always the same: they jump back, and then they break into an uncontrolled grin which they can't get rid of.

Player pianos are nothing compared to this wonderful beast. Condition yourself every day with a few good marches on the band organ, and then the piano will no longer seem quite so loud.
