How Does the Ampico Rate as a Reproducing Piano
By John A. Tuttle

Hi All,  From the desk of Craig Brougher, who loves both the Duo-Art
and the Ampico reproducing piano systems, comes his 'latest and
greatest' article about the Ampico system.

Just when you thought there was virtually nothing left to say about
the Ampico, Craig delves into "Ten" aspects of the system that have
received little or no attention in the past.  From the "A"rtists who
recorded for Ampico to the "W"ood that was selected for various
critical parts, it becomes obvious that the people who manufactured
the machine and the people who masterfully played the music strove
for excellence and achieved their lofty goals.

Truly a "must read" for anyone who enjoys a complete and lively look
into the methods and madness of the Ampico saga.
