Mason Hamlin Ampico

    I have a customer with a Mason Hamlin A, Ampico, from 1927.  It is all original, all there, and needs EVERYTHING.  These pianos were sought after in the 80's but it seems that ship has sailed.  It could be stripped of the reproducing mechanism and rebuilt as a piano but that seems like a crime.  Anyone out there looking for a reproducing piano project?  Know of anyone?  The piano can be had for almost nothing.  I would cheerfully take it and rebuild the piano but it just seems wrong to throw out the repro.  Any suggestions?

    Chris,
    I see some folks will post on the "Player Piano Talk"  page on Facebook. There are many rebuilders and player enthusiasts that follow their page. It will certainly have a big audience of readers which might be interested in the Ampico Player especially that the piano is a Mason & Hamlin.  Good Luck.
