|The pianola at the start of restoration in February....|
We also have an old pianola (aka player piano), which is currently undergoing restoration by Tom Poole and his team at the Cambridge Pianola Company. Restoration is a lengthy (and costly!) process, but when work is finished later this year the pianola will be tuned to concert pitch and the rolls will sound amazing. More importantly, B will once again be able to perform his New Year's party piece - playing Scott Joplin's "The Entertainer" even though cannot play a note!
