Have a desire to learn more about your Player Piano, or to see how to service or rebuild your Piano?  These two books by Art Reblitz (Left & Right) are the finest source of information available today.  The Player Piano Servicing and Repair Book will show you  just how the Player Piano works, and information on the many different player systems in player pianos.

The Piano Servicing,Tuning, & Rebuilding Book will give you information to learn what is involved in a piano, and to service or repair your instrument.

If you want to see the history of Automatic Musical Instruments, the Encyclopedia of Automatic Musical Instruments by Q. David Bowers is the one to own.  You will find it hard to put down.  This is NOT a book on rebuilding, but a book on the history of these instruments.  You will not believe how much information with pictures is in this one book!

Please "CLICK " on Desired Book for more information and Pricing.
