American Piano Industry 1960's to 1981
By Craig Brougher

Don Teach really told it like it is.  I hope that every reader of the
MMD will devour his letter yesterday, and realize what he is saying!

the nose who was intent on taking advantage of the public and making
money off their ignorance (and this is not an exaggerated

about the finest full upright piano that is built, today.

planet.  Anybody who loves pianos so much that they would buy the great
Sitka spruce forests to assure themselves of the best sound boards the
world can own, is -- in my opinion -- people after my own heart!
