Gulbransen Pianos and Pianolas 1926
YOU have missed the greatest joy in music if you have never played yourself
And now you can. You need no musical training. Yet, you can play with all the expression, with all the skill of a practiced pianist.
You can enjoy the thrill of putting yourself into the music you playâ€”your own touch, your own personality.
It seems incredible. Yet, thirty minutes with the Gulbransen Registering Piano will convince youâ€”and amaze you.
The Gulbransen plays by rollâ€”but you control its playing. You can hush it to a whisper, or release its clear, sweet tones in brilliant volume. You can play fast or slow, accent melody and harmony notes, accompany voices or other instruments. It is simple and easy.
You can, in a word, do anything that you could do if you played by hand. This is true of the Gulbransen aloneâ€” the only piano of its kind in the world.
Only the Gulbransen has the special patented constructionâ€”the Reg-istering featureâ€”which registers ex-actly your individual touch. Ordinary roll-played pianos lack this feature. The Gulbransen, having it, is responsive, personal, human. It gives you all the enjoyment of hand playing. Its music cannot be told from hand playing.
That is why the Gulbransen is the largest selling piano in America today. Thousands of pianists, recognizing its superb quality, own it and play it both by hand and by roll.
As a straight piano, for hand playing, the Gulbransen is an instrument of the highest rank. As a Registering Piano, the Gulbransen plays all music rolls.
Thirty minutes will reveal to you a new world of musical enjoyment with the Gulbransen. Call upon the Gulbransen dealer near you and ask for a demonstrationâ€”entirely without obligation on your part. If you do not know him, write us for his name.
