Serial number: 126870
Mechanism: Ampico
Height: 1.36 m

In Europe the American Piano Co. cooperated with the leading piano manufacturers in each country, i.e. with J. Broadwood & Sons (UK). These pianos are extremely hard to find. This piano plays beautifully as the reproducing mechanism had been restored already. The acoustic piano still is in a very good condition. The touch and tone is very good. A very nice instrument to all those who admire the huge piano roll selection available for Ampico, i.e. Rachmaninoff playing his own pieces.
