It is interesting to know that every member of the English Royal Family has purchased a piano-player. It is significant that in every instance it has been a Pianola.

The Pianola is the standard piano-player of the world.

Its musical superiority is universally conceded by the greatest musicians of this country and Europe.

Its mechanical excellence is everywhere recognized. It is the most scientifically designed and carefully constructed instrument of this type in the world.

The Metrostyle Pianola, the popular model, costs $300. This is somewhat more than the price of other piano-players, but wherever it is a question of quality and not of price the Pianola is universally the instrument selected.
