Kingsbury Carola Inner Player in Mason & Hamlin
By Jere DeBacker

Hello Friends,  Has anyone ever heard of a Mason & Hamlin Kingsbury

Carola Inner Player?  I'm working on a beautiful piano that has the

serial number 164312 and on the fall board it has the standard Mason

& Hamlin script and under that it has Kingsbury followed by Carola

Inner Player.  I don't see any reference to Mason & Hamlin and Cable

Kingsbury being associated in the Pierce Piano Atlas.

It's a great old piano with the spool box up really high like a

Kimball, but it has a player system much more like a Euphona.  The

bellows are completely different, with the pumps and the reservoirs

running horizontally instead of vertical like usual.  The bellows are

also two separate units that bolt onto a divider in the center.  It's

a nice system, and the piano is very high quality.
