and, if said at *all*, should be noted as "personal opinion".
Although a "purist" might feel this way, I believe there are many circumstances where an electric pump will keep a piano playing which otherwise might just sit. For instance, from time to time I experience very painful lower back problems. Should I be denied the use of my piano simply because I am unable, physically, to pump it? I'm sure there are many who may fit this category.
Also, although not technically capable of making music by itself, I think that at least a passing mention could be made of the Pianocorder.
