When musicians of the calibre of Moriz Rosenthal, Maurice Moszkowski, Cecile Chaminade, and Arthur Nikisch set the stamp of their approval on a pianoforte, its status as a truly exceptional instrument is permanently established. The Stroud Pianola is spjendid value as a piano, but this instrument is much more than a piano. The wonderful roll-playing action it. contains, and which allows everyone to play it, is the genuine Pianola action, pre-eminently the best thing of its kind in the markets of the world. Practically every great musician alive today has given unqualified support to this statement. The STROUD Pianola Costs only $550 This price is what establishes its value as the greatest that can be obtained. Compared with any player-piano of other make, it will hold its own in pianoforte qual ity, against much higher-priced instruments.
