Aeolian Piano Given a Home
By Andy Taylor

Damon wrote, "Aeolian owners and restores, please e-mail me so I can
ask you a few specific questions.  I'd really appreciate it!"

Ask away Damon!!  If that piano is original, and that nice, chances
are it doesn't have any major problems.  Every once in a while we find
original pianos in nice condition, and it is a sheer pleasure to work
with them. I've seen and owned pianos in good original condition that
still play and sound great, but they are rare.

I do have an old Aeolian that has some bad brass rail problems (half of
the hammers fell out!), but it's all there.  The piano itself is very
questionable, but the case is nice.  I've been saving it for parts for
the Duo-Art people. I'd like to trade the piano and player action for a
65/88-note spool box, or another Foster, of course!!  Any takers?

Best regards
