Player Pianos at Craigslist
By David Dewey

There are great bargains at Craigslist:

1. "Euphona Inner-Player by The Cable Company Chicago" is listed
as a "Free to a good home" and this is one of the easiest systems
to rebuild, and they usually play well too, as well as being in
a robustly-built piano.  I can't see from the pictures, but it could
even be a Recordo, like mine!  It also includes an unusual bench. 

2. "Jesse French and Sons "Lagonda" player piano" is out here on the
West Coast, not far from me even (but I have too many projects to take
on another one).  It's a book matched burl walnut case (from looking at
the photos) with a Simplex player in it.  I don't know about y'all, but
I think Simplex players are great units.  This one has apparently been
in the Sacramento area since at least the 1940s, so it hasn't suffered
climate changes, and the Sacramento climate is pretty easy on pianos. 

I have no connection with either piano, but I do suggest some readers
check them out, or mention them to others.

Play 'em if ya got 'em!
