He' has shown that nothing can stop the great wave sounds that this marvelous machine creates. Its the
greatest instrument of its kind the world has yet produced.
The Sterling Piano Company have been demonstrating for nearly 50 years, that nothing could stop the
matchless tone waves produced by their grand pianos. It took years of experimenting to produce a tone that
could not be confined by brick walls. With their many advantages and exceptional facilities, they are favorbly
situated for the manufacture of fine pianos. Viewed from an artistic standpoint Jhere is much interest to be
noticed in the wonderful suc.cess of the Sterling.
We will take pleasure in giving you a complete demonstration of this wonderful instrument at any time.
