Announcement: Outbound Mail Delivery Broken

We are having a problem with our mail service provider. Inbound mail is working but outbound mail -- specifically for mailing the Digest -- is not working and we know it. Sorry!!! Please bear with us. In the meantime, I will endeavor to keep the MMD website up-to-date with updates DAILY.

Piano Without a Player Action Is More Valuable
By Don Winter

Michael, I have given up on the sale of the Knabe Ampico.  Looking
back, I have NEVER been able to sell a player grand regardless of price
or condition to the general public.  I have always had to remove the
player.  This particular piano is very nice, the best I have ever owned
out of say 25 grands.  But the expression needs attention.  The current
local sale fell through and I will simply remove the player, place it on
eBay and sell the piano for whatever I can get for it as a regular
grand.  There is literally no more demand for these things.  I am not
the least upset about it, but mechanical hobbies have been tanking just
like the Dow Jones!  LOL

At my age, if I were to do another rebuild I would rather invest that
time in a 7' Mason and Hamlin B or something like that.
