THE possession of the world's best is none
too good for anyone who loves music, for,
whether you play, sing or are content to listen,
remember that a piano is purchased for a lifetime
service and enjoyment.
Hence, in the choice of a piano do not consider
the claims of any that must acknowledge a
"superior." The Steinway Piano has no equal
it is in a class all its own. With its purchase
goes the assurance that you own the world's
leading piano. This assurance and satisfaction is
well worth the slightly higher cost of the Steinway.
