tending the entire length of the inst -ument. Copper wound Bass strings. Action first class and

The MARCHANT Piano is far superior to the average piano given in contests of this kind as a
$50.00 gold watch is compared to a dollar Ingersoll. This piano is manufactured by legitimat
plano makers and sold by legitimate piano merchants in a legitimate manner. So many pianos c -
fered in contests of this kind are simply makeshifts manufactured by you don't know who and c? r
rying names which are not listed in any manufacturer's or dealer's piano guide, pianos which lcok
well and sound well for a few months and then go all to pieces. The Marchant piano cannot be
classed uader the above description, but is the best $300 piano sold by the Marchant Music Co.
