SOURCE: When was the Werner player piano made with serial number 727660 ?

The best way I have found is to get to the back of any of the controls and read the 137 codes. The date will be the next two digits. For example if you read 13762## you know it was made in my favorite year 1962. Year I was born ! Larry

SOURCE: How old is my piano?

1949 and the fifth piano they made in that year or made in month 5 = May.

Try this though. Do you know where middle C is on the keyboard? It is about half way along, very slightly to the left. Remove the front board so you can see the harp with all the strings and the lift middle C key out. On the side of the wooden part of the key half way down towards the strings, you may well see when it was made and every tuning or repair written in pencil.

I found this out by accident. I inherited an old piano and a couple of the keys stuck, so I took them all out very carefully, kept them in order, cleaned them with a damp cloth and sprayed and polished them with furniture polish. I found the history of the piano on one of the keys. When the tuner came to tune it, I told him about my find. He said "was it this key"? as he tapped the middle C. He told him it was done often and was a nice way to keep the history for future repairers and tuners. I wrote his visit on there. He also told me he could smell the furniture polish and I had done a good job.

Let us know how you get on.
