Not long ago you heard a Piano so
harsh ?nd metallic in tone that you
wondered how it carne to be in so nice
a hosie. You vowed you^would
never own such a plano. DID YOU
Were you in earnest when you heard
at another home a Piano so beautiful,
so sympathetic and melodious that it
fairly touched your heart and you said,
I want such a Piano. ONE MAY
.HAVE COST AS MUCH AS THE
OTHER. One was sold as a "just as
good," The other sold itself because
it was a MUSICAL INSTRUMENT.
Eve.y Piano in our stock from
Wesser down; has character and indi
vidually, a Piano of class by right of
birth and breeding. That is something
unklug, something to be seen nowhere
else in Anderson.
And it means that a person having
only.$200 or $225 to spend on a
Piano, can come with the certainty or
getting the very, best instrument possi
ble to make for that* amount of money..
There are standard low priced Pianos
just as there are .standard high priced
instruments. THE STANDARD"
PIANOS ARE HfcrJE; THE WORLD'S
BEST FOR EACH PARTICULAR
PRICE. ' ' *
How We Can Do It
We buy pur pianos DIRECT from the FACTORY paying;
SPOT CASH for them which makes a GftEAT BIG differ
ence in the CO$T to US. In this manner we are enabled to
name YOU prices which were NE VER named here before
for the SAME GRADE of instruments.
Our pianos are Guaranteed for TEN YEAHS? by ourselves
and the Manufacturers, too. ?.i
We Set For Castor on renns to Suit You
Let this be your invitation to come and see. It will be a
delight to you. and a pleasure to us
